FY 2012 Goal: Collect $58 million from 3rd Party Payers

Did you know that approximately 3,000 people in the YK delta fall off of the State’s Medicaid eligibility coverage list each month? Sometimes it’s due to a change in income or personal situation, but many simply fail to renew their enrollment coverage on time.

You can help the HOPE team (Healthcare Outreach Program & Enrollment) by renewing your Medicaid or Denali KidCare at least 30–45 days before the coverage end date. Timely renewals will make your next hospital visit go smoothly. Keeping your information current is important, especially in the event of an emergency.

If YKHC pays your travel one way into Bethel, you will be required to apply for Medicaid. Next time you come…

  • Bring your photo ID, 3 months of recent pay stubs, current bank statement.
  • If you are applying for Denali KidCare; photo ID, last 30 days of pay stubs, birth certificates for children and social security cards.
  • Update your mailing address, cell or land line number with Registration and the HOPE Dept.
