Who Qualifies for Medicaid Coverage?

Many Ohioians who were not eligible for Medicaid in the past now can receive coverage.  You can use this tool from the State of Ohio to check to see if you might be eligible.  Your local county Job and Family Services office can help to explain these requirements and can help get you enrolled.

To be eligible for coverage, you must:

  1. Be a United States Citizen or meet Medicaid citizenship requirements.
  2. Have or get a Social Security number.
  3. Be an Ohio resident.
  4. Meet certain financial requirements. Learn more about Ohio’s financial requirements or read the Federal Poverty Guidelines.

Purchase Affordable Health Insurance

If your income is too high to qualify for Medicaid, you may be able to purchase health insurance and receive payments to help make the premiums affordable.  Follow this link to learn more.

 

Still can’t afford health insurance?  Learn how to see a doctor at a significantly reduced rate.

If you cannot afford to see a doctor, and do not have medical insurance, you can contact a Federally Qualified Health Center or a Rural Health Center for help.

A Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) is a public or private non-profit health care provider offering low cost primary and preventative care services to all age groups. Some FQHCs may also offer dental services, mental health and substance abuse services, and other specialty care. Costs are based on income and family size, but services are available regardless of ability to pay.

A Rural Health Clinic (RCH) is a public or private health care provider offering out-patient primary care services and basic laboratory services to Medicare and Medicaid recipients in underserved rural areas. RHCs use a team approach of physicians and midlevel practitioners, such as nurse practitioners and physician assistants, to provide services. An RHC may be either a stand-alone clinic or part of a hospital, nursing home, or other health care provider.
