At Aetna Better Health® of Illinois, we want to continue getting you the health care coverage you need without any disruption. Every 12 months, the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) will determine if you or your family members still qualify for HealthChoice Illinois. This review process is called redetermination.
You should get a Medicaid Benefits Renewal Form in the mail from HFS. They’ll verify all the information you used to get your HealthChoice Illinois coverage last year. If nothing has changed, sign and return the form. Upon receipt of your completed form, HFS will renew your HealthChoice Illinois coverage automatically. And you’ll get a notice telling you that you’re still covered.
Did any of your information change?
Your Medicaid Benefits Renewal Form may be prepopulated with past information that HFS has on your household. Correct any incorrect information and add anything that is missing. You’ll have 30 days to send your completed form and supporting information back to HFS.
By mail: You can mail your signed renewal form to:
Illinois Department of Health and Family Services
PO Box 19138
Springfield, IL 62763
By fax: You can fax your signed renewal form to HFS at
You always have options. You can switch your health plan once within 90 days of enrollment. After that, you can switch once a year during open enrollment. HFS will send you an enrollment form during open enrollment. You can choose Aetna Better Health of Illinois through Illinois Client Enrollment Services.
