Eligibility requirements vary for different groups
The Medicaid program in Ohio provides medical coverage for certain qualifying individuals and families with limited income. To qualify for Medicaid a person must be a U.S. citizen or meet Medicaid citizenship requirements, be an Ohio resident, have or obtain a Social Security number, and meet financial requirements. In some cases, Medicaid puts a limit on resources an individual or family may have, such as bank accounts, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, trusts, vehicles and property. A person’s home of residence, personal belongings and one vehicle usually are not counted in the resource limit.
Ohio Medicaid provides coverage to the following:
- Children younger than age 19
- Pregnant women
