Important healthcare coverage information for Medicaid members.
In December 2022, Congress passed the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2023 (CAA). Per the CAA, the continuous coverage provision that prohibited states from disenrolling members from Medicaid will expire on
March 31, 2023. Ohio will resume routine eligibility operations on February 1, 2023. This will cause some Ohio Medicaid members to be disenrolled from the program.
It is critical that members take the necessary steps to update your contact information, respond to requests for information (including renewal packets sent in the mail), or transition to other coverage if you are no longer eligible for Medicaid.
Your child may be eligible for coverage even if you are no longer eligible. For more information, contact your County Department ofJob and Family Services.
