    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    What will members receive?2022-01-03T19:38:17+00:00

    Our unique offering gives members a free smartphone and free data plan, including unlimited minutes, text and data (15 GB of high speed data).

    What do members need to enroll?2021-11-04T19:20:03+00:00

    Medicaid members will only be asked to enter the Personal Identifiable Information (PII) and do not need any formal documentation. The Lifeline for Medicaid Members application will ask:

    • Member first and last name
    • Member Date of birth
    • Last four digits of member’s social security number
    • Member Residence Address
    • Email Address

    Information must match the member’s information in their Medicaid file within the Medicaid database, even if out-to-date. (i.e. If a member has moved but has not yet updated their residence, they must enter the residence address on file.)

    How long does the process take?2021-06-22T19:18:11+00:00

    Applying is simple and takes no more than a few minutes. Phones will be drop shipped to the recipient’s home in 3-5 business days.

    If multiple members in the same household qualify for Lifeline, can they receive multiple free smartphones and plans?2021-06-22T19:18:42+00:00

    No, Federal rules only permit one Lifeline benefit per household. If eligible members within the same household are married, they are considered one household and do not qualify individually. However, it two eligible members live together but maintain separate finances (i.e. contribute to the bill separately), those two individuals are considered different economic units and qualify separately. Customer attestation is required to confirm they are different economic units.

    What if a member is already receiving a Lifeline benefit?2021-06-22T19:19:08+00:00

    Individuals currently receiving the Lifeline benefit can elect to transfer their benefit to this free, new plan. To do so, members simply need to enroll via this application and their prior benefit will be terminated.  It is important to ask members if they already receive a Lifeline benefit, such as for their home phone line. If members enroll in this new plan, they will lose their former benefit and be charged the full amount of the broadband service. One can check the member’s phone bill to confirm if a member already receives a Lifeline benefit.

    Do members need to do anything after they submit their application?2021-06-22T19:19:30+00:00

    Once members receive the phone in the mail, they must use their phone once per month to keep the program active.

    What if we have more questions during enrollment?2021-11-05T17:05:04+00:00

    To contact our customer support team, please call 877-277-9021.

    What if a member’s shipping address is different from their residence address within their Medicaid file?2021-06-23T02:14:50+00:00

    Members can opt to select a separate shipping address. Members must check the relevant box and enter their current shipping address.

    Can other qualifying programs (outside of the Medicaid population) enroll for the Lifeline Program?2022-01-03T19:29:57+00:00

    Yes. To be eligible, consumers must either have an income that is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines or participate in certain federal assistance programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), WIC, Medicaid, Federal Public Housing Assistance, Supplemental Security Income, the Veterans and Survivors Pension Benefit, or certain Tribal Programs. For complete qualification information, please visit https://www.fcc.gov/lifeline-consumers.

    Do Georgia Medicaid members need to provide documentation for proof of eligibility?2021-11-04T20:18:04+00:00

    No. Eligible Medicaid members will not need to upload documentation unless they are not found in the National Verifier. All Georgia Medicaid members are automatically qualified to receive the free Lifeline benefit.

    Can I enroll on behalf of my child?2021-09-27T18:20:05+00:00

    Children who are on Medicaid also qualify for the Lifeline program. A child’s guardian can enroll in the Lifeline program on behalf of that child.

    What if I have questions about using my device?2021-09-27T18:20:49+00:00

    Please contact the wireless carrier with any technical questions regarding using the device.
