Children's Health Insurance Program

​Renewing Coverage

To keep your children covered, you have to renew every year — It's not automatic. Renewal forms will be sent to you approximately 45 days before your coverage ends.

To renew your coverage, you will need the following information:

  • Renewal Notice from your County Assistance Office
  • Income amounts for your entire household before taxes: all forms of income (for example — your paycheck, social security, pension, workers' compensation, unemployment, etc.)
  • Social Security Numbers and birthdates for all applicants
  • Private health insurance information (if you have or had private health insurance in the last 90 days)

Ways to Renew Coverage

Renew online

To renew online using COMPASS, you will need your record number and renewal month. You can find all of this information in the renewal letter you received in the mail from your County Assistance Office.

Renew by mail

Your County Assistance Office will send you a renewal form with your renewal notice. After your renewal form is complete, you will need to sign it and send it back. If you haven't received your renewal notice, call your County Assistance Office.
