PROVIDENCE – By December 2014, 6,000 families will be required to renew RIte Care each month, for a total of 42,000 families before the end of the year. These are families whose last RIte Care renewal occurred in 2013 and will need to renew through a new system and provide all information as if this were a new application.

Families who received their first yellow renewal notice in June should renew their coverage by July 15, 2014, so they do not have any gaps in coverage. If they do not complete the process, the family’s RIte Care coverage will stop on July 31.

On July 1, the second round of yellow renewal notices were mailed to 6,000 families. These families must complete the renewal process by August 1 so they do not have any gaps in coverage. If they do not complete the process, the family’s RIte Care coverage will stop on Aug. 31.

This renewal process is a major change from the way families renewed RIte Care coverage in the past. Previously, most families received a pre-populated paper form, which they needed to update and return to the state with paystubs. RIte Care families that received RI Works cash assistance would renew their RIte Care along with cash assistance, when they met with their case worker. Now they must renew using the new system described above and provide all information as if it were a new application.
