Everyone Deserves a Health Care Home
If you are eligible for Medicaid, but if you are under 19 and disabled, receive Medicaid through a waiver, become eligible by spending down income, or reside in a nursing home or other institution, under current rules you don't have the services of a Health Care Home available to you.
If you are on Medicaid and feel you deserve a Health Care Home, please let your state legislators know. Convenient contact tools are on this site.
Enrollment instructions and forms are available in the Medicaid Enrollment section of the Ohio website. You can get help with the process through the Ohio Benefit Bank online or through one of their 1200 locations statewide.
