Med-QUEST Launches Automated Telephonic Campaign



As part of our multi-pronged communications effort, Med-QUEST is launching an automated telephonic campaign this week to remind our members about the importance of updating their contact information.

Having the correct contact information – including phone number, mailing address, and email address – will help facilitate the coverage renewal process.

The telephonic campaign will employ both automated phone calls and SMS text messages.

Med-QUEST will send telephonic messages to members prior to and shortly after their coverage renewal dates.

  • Automated phone calls will be sent through a dedicated phone number, 808-556-5748.
  • SMS text messages will be sent through a dedicated SMS short code, 45421.

These numbers are only being used to facilitate outbound communications and will not accept inbound calls or texts from members.

If members have questions, they are encouraged to call Med-QUEST at 1-800-316-8005.

Med-QUEST reminds the public that it will never ask for members’ financial information via text.

Med-QUEST reminds members who have yet to be contacted to do the following to prepare for their renewals:

  • Be sure to update your contact information by calling the Health Plan phone number on the back of your insurance card.
  • If you no longer need QUEST (Medicaid) coverage, call us at 1-800-316-8005, (TTY/TDD 711) to let us know.
  • Be on the lookout for a pink envelope with a pink letter that will provide instructions on eligibility renewals. This pink letter may require a response in order to maintain health coverage. Be sure to read the letter and follow all instructions, if applicable.

During the renewal process, some people may no longer be eligible for coverage through Med-QUEST. If a person is determined to no longer be eligible for coverage, we encourage them to check with their employer to see if they qualify for employer-sponsored coverage.

If a previous Med-QUEST enrollee is not eligible for health insurance through their employer, they should please visit the Health Insurance Marketplace at HealthCare.Gov or by calling 1-800-318-2596 to make sure they stay well and stay covered!
