Medicaid Renewal Information for Members

Contact your health insurance managed care organization:

  • Do you have an insurance card from Neighborhood Health Plan of Rhode IslandTufts Health RITogether Plan (RITogether) or UnitedHealthcare Community Plan (UHCCP)? Call the number on the back of your card for assistance in updating your contact information. Be sure to give them permission to share this information with the State of Rhode Island (Option not available to the Department of Children, Youth, and Families, Medicaid-Medicare plan members, or traditional fee-for-service Medicaid members).

Over the phone:

  • Call HealthSource RI (HSRI) at 1-855-840-4774 (Monday through Friday, except holidays, from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.).

Not everyone will be renewed at the same time. Use the Medicaid Renewal Lookup Portal to find your anticipated Medicaid renewal date.

The portal can be changed to English, Spanish, and Portuguese. Up in the right top corner of the portal, it says “translate to” if you want to switch to a different language. If someone is helping you renew, they can use the portal, too.

The portal is easy and secure. You don't need to log in with an email or password. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Enter the Medicaid ID number on your white Anchor card.
  • Enter your date of birth.

The portal will tell you when you can expect to renew. But remember, your renewal date may change so check back often.

You can also find your anticipated Medicaid renewal date, by logging in to your account at and looking for “My Renewal Information”.

Once you know your anticipated renewal date, you can get ready. You should:

  • Update your contact information. 
  • Watch your mail for a yellow or green notice.

When your notice comes in the mail, read it and take action right away. Your notice will tell you what you should do. You will only be able to take action to renew your health coverage once you get this later.

As part of the renewal process, the State may ask you to submit more documents. There are many ways you can submit documents, including in-person, online, or by-mail options that are listed below.
