ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland officials announced a public awareness campaign on Thursday to remind Medicaid recipients to renew their coverage since the federal government is reinstating a requirement that existed before the COVID-19 pandemic for states to verify eligibility.

The announcement came on the same day that the nation’s COVID-19 health emergency was ending.
