South Dakota Medicaid covers most medical services that are necessary to keep you and your family healthy. These include physical and behavioral health, dental, vision and transportation services.

COVID-19 & Unwinding the Continuous Coverage Requirement
During the COVID-19 federal public health emergency, federal regulations did not allow Medicaid coverage to close, even for recipients who were not eligible. Effective April 1, 2023, federal regulations again allowed for Medicaid to close. Learn more about Medicaid coverage and benefits during the public health emergency in our COVID-19 Recipient FAQs.

Over the next several months, DSS staff will be redetermining Medicaid eligibility. Visit the Important Changes Coming Soon to Medicaid Eligibility to find resources and information about the end of the continuous coverage requirement.
