With the end of the federal public health emergency and accompanying extra Medicaid funding set for March 31, 2023, the state of Montana Office of Public Assistance (OPA) has begun the process of determining if everyone who received Medi-caid coverage during the public health emergency will remain qualified to do so under normal circumstances.

To that end, OPA is contacting all Medicaid enrollees via mail to start the eligibility redetermination process. Therefore, all Medicaid enrollees must provide OPA with their accurate mailing addresses. You can check and correct your address information at

If you need assistance in checking or changing your address online or with filling out and submitting the Medicaid eligibility redetermination forms, contact the LIFTT office in your area at (406) 259-5181 (Billings) or (406) 948-8500 (Glendive).
