Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What do I need to do if I have Medicaid already?

If you already have Medicaid, there’s nothing you need to do differently. The Affordable Care Act makes it easier to apply for and keep Medicaid coverage.

Medicaid is considered minimum essential coverage. People who have Medicaid won’t pay a tax penalty for not having coverage.

If you need help applying for or renewing Medicaid, or if you have questions about these benefits, please call District Direct at (202) 727-5355.
