What happens after I apply?
- We review your application
- Your application is approved.
Ohio Medicaid has a statewide network of providers including hospitals, family practice doctors, pharmacies and durable medical equipment companies. You should ask the provider if they accept Medicaid before scheduling an appointment.
Your case will be reviewed every 12 months. If there are any changes in your household that might affect your eligibility in between review times, you should let your caseworker know within 10 days.
Most people who are eligible for Ohio Medicaid will be asked to enroll in a Managed Care Plan. Soon after you receive your fee-for-service Medicaid card, you will receive a letter asking you to choose a Medicaid Managed Care plan.
For more information and help with picking a plan that is right for you, call the Consumer Hotline: (800) 324.8680.
