Ohio Benefits Begins Processing Federal Cases Today

 

Ohio Benefits, the state's new online Medicaid eligibility system, has processed over 70 percent of the 145,094 applications received since October 1, 2013. In addition, potential Medicaid cases have been accumulating in the federal health care eligibility system. On February 20, Ohio Medicaid officially requested that the federal government transfer applications for 106,624 Ohioans who have been waiting in limbo to access health care. The first federal cases will transfer into Ohio Benefits today, February 26. Ohio Medicaid and county departments of job and family services have prepared a plan to manage the sudden influx of federal cases and expedite their resolution.
