Medicaid in Ohio

The Ohio Medicaid program is available to residents of all ages who meet certain income thresholds. Ohio Medicaid is set up as a group of managed care programs serving specific demographic groups such as infants, children, families, the elderly and the disabled. These managed care programs offer preventive health care, medical professional services, hospital and outpatient services, prescriptions, transportation and medical equipment. To qualify, adults must:

  • Be a U.S. citizen, legal alien or permanent resident
  • Be an Ohio resident
  • Have an annual household income under $16,146 for an individual or $21,892 for a couple
  • Help for seniors in assisted living facilities is covered under the Ohio Medicaid Home and Community-Based/Long-Term Care waiver, detailed below.  To apply for Medicaid, visit Ohio Benefits online or call the Medicaid Consumer Hotline at (800) 324-8680. Assisted Living Waiver The Assisted Living waiver is a Medicaid program that covers specific services in participating assisted living facilities, including housekeeping, skilled nursing and daily living activities such as bathing and medication administration. The waiver is available to seniors who need a nursing level of care but wish to remain in an assisted living facility. To be eligible, applicants must:
  • Have a monthly income of no more than $2,313 for an individual ($4,626 for couples)
  • Have no more than $2,000 in assets for an individual or $3,000 per couple (a primary home and a vehicle are exempt from this requirement)
  • This program is not an entitlement, and not all assisted living facilities accept the waiver, so there may be a waiting list for available spots. Participants are responsible for paying room and board; the waiver only covers the cost of support services. For more information on the Assisted Living waiver program, visit the Ohio Medicaid website or download this PDF offered by the Ohio Department of Aging. Anyone wishing to apply for the waiver should contact the Ohio Area Agency on Aging or call (866) 243-5678.
