Who is eligible? Most Medicaid beneficiaries are eligible for membership in an Ohio Medicaid managed care plan.
Description: In Ohio, most individuals who have Medicaid must join a managed care plan to receive their health care. Managed care plans are health insurance companies that are licensed by the Ohio Department of Insurance and have a provider agreement with the Ohio Department of Medicaid to provide coordinated health care to Medicaid beneficiaries. These managed care plans work with hospitals, doctors and other health care providers to coordinate care and to provide the health care services that are available with an Ohio Medicaid card. If you have Medicaid, and are in a managed care plan, you need to get most of your health care from health care providers that work with your managed care plan.
MyCare Ohio is a system of managed care plans selected to coordinate physical, behavioral, and long-term care services for individuals over the age of 18 who are eligible for both Medicaid and Medicare. This includes individuals with disabilities, older adults, and individuals who receive behavioral health services. More Information
Long-term services and supports are programs or services that help older adults and people with disabilities accomplish everyday tasks. These tasks may include bathing, getting dressed, fixing meals, and managing a home. As our population ages, the number of individuals needing this kind of help will increase. Long-term services and supports allow individuals to live healthy, secure, and independent lives either in a long-term care facility or in a home and community-based setting.
The Ohio Department of Medicaid offers the following long-term services and supports:
Home and Community-Based Services: Home and community-based services offer individuals with long-term care needs the option of receiving their services at home or in a community setting. These programs serve a variety of populations including individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities, physical disabilities or mental illness. More Information
Services in a Facility: Individuals who cannot care for themselves at home may require services through a facility-based care setting (such as a nursing home or other long-term care setting). Ohio's Medicaid program can help Medicaid-eligible Ohioans pay for their long-term care. More Information
Veterans on Medicaid: Veterans receiving assistance from Medicaid may also be eligible for Veterans Affairs health care, even if they served many years ago. The Veterans on Medicaid program helps veterans take advantage of all their available resources. More Information
Additional Services: Additional resources, programs and services are available for individuals who have long-term care needs. These needs may include private duty nursing, hospice services, and targeted case management. More Information
