would like to know how to go about changing it to Ohio’s Medicaid.
Q) Hello I just moved to woodsfield ohio from San Diego and I currently have medical/community healthcare and would like to know how to go about changing it to Ohios Medicaid. Thank you
A) Hi there! Welcome to Ohio. I’m happy to help you with your question.
To change your medical/community healthcare to Ohio’s Medicaid, you will need to apply for Medicaid in Ohio. You can apply online at https://medicaid.ohio.gov/ or by calling 1-800-324-8680.
When you apply for Medicaid, you will need to provide information about your income, household size, and expenses. You will also need to provide proof of identity and residency. If you are approved for Medicaid, you will receive a card that you can use to receive medical care.
Here are some additional tips for applying for Medicaid in Ohio:
- Start the process as soon as possible. The application process can take several weeks, so it is best to start the process as soon as possible.
- Be prepared to provide documentation. The Medicaid office will need to see documentation of your income, assets, and residency in order to determine your eligibility for benefits.
- Be patient. The application process can be time-consuming, so be patient and be prepared to provide the necessary information.
I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Each state governs their own Medicaid program so you will need to reapply for medicaid in your new state of Ohio.
NOTE: According to Ohio Medicaid website:
In some cases, you may want to apply to receive Medicaid without applying for cash or food assistance. By visiting http://www.benefits.ohio.gov or calling 1-844-640-OHIO (6446), you can apply for Medicaid only, without applying for cash or food assistance at the same time.
I am thinking of staying at my daughters house until this virus is gone. I have Medicaid and food stamps. I’m seriously thinking of moving to Georgia. I don’t what I should do
Medicaid is a joint federal and state program with each state governing their own program. If you move you will need to reapply for Medicaid in your new state.
To participate in Medicaid, federal law requires states to cover certain groups of individuals. Low-income families, qualified pregnant women and children, and individuals receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are examples of mandatory eligibility groups (PDF, 177.87 KB) . States have additional options for coverage and may choose to cover other groups, such as individuals receiving home and community-based services and children in foster care who are not otherwise eligible.
The Affordable Care Act of 2010 created the opportunity for states to expand Medicaid to cover nearly all low-income Americans under age 65. Eligibility for children was extended to at least 133% of the federal poverty level (FPL) in every state (most states cover children to higher income levels), and states were given the option to extend eligibility to adults with income at or below 133% of the FPL. Most states have chosen to expand coverage to adults, and those that have not yet expanded may choose to do so at any time. See if your state has expanded Medicaid coverage to low-income adults. https://www.medicaid.gov/medicaid/eligibility/index.html
