Citizens Encouraged to Re-Apply for Medicaid if Still Waiting for Response from healthcare.gov

Montgomery County Department of Job and Family Services is encouraging individuals to re-apply for Medicaid benefits at benefits.ohio.gov if they previously applied at healthcare.gov and are still waiting for a response. Those who have already applied at benefits.ohio.gov need not apply again.

Early issues with benefits.ohio.gov have been resolved, and making an attempt on the site will be the best way to secure coverage as soon as possible. Even if individuals do not meet the requirements to qualify for Medicaid, they may qualify for discounted coverage of some kind. The benefits.ohio.gov site will route non-qualifying Medicaid applicants to the Health Insurance Marketplace, where they can find a number of coverage options.

An estimated 29,000 Montgomery County residents are newly eligible for Medicaid with the broader eligibility criteria which started on Dec. 9, 2013. Failure to get health insurance coverage will result in a penalty when you file your 2014 tax return next year, so please visit benefits.ohio.gov today.

For those who don’t have a computer, go to the Medicaid Application Center in Suite 281 of The Job Center, 1111 Edwin Moses Blvd. in Dayton. There you will find helpful staff and a bank of computers that are free to use for your application. The Center is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
