Ohio Benefits for citizens seeking health coverage
Ohio Medicaid Director John McCarthy recently updated members of the Joint Medicaid Oversight Committee on the continued progress of the new Ohio Benefits online eligibility system. Since going "live" on October 1, 2013, more than two million Ohioans have applied for Medicaid coverage online through the new system. Over the next two years, additional income-tested programs like nutrition assistance and temporary cash assistance for needy families will be moved onto the Ohio Benefits eligibility determination system.
