Medicaid Patients

As a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), CHS is able to accept any type of Medicaid plan. Please keep in mind:

  • The primary care provider (PCP) on your Medicaid card may be automatically assigned
  • This does not mean that you are automatically a patient of the provider shown on your card
  • You are required to complete the New Patient Registration process if you have not been seen in a CHS within the last three years.

Marketplace Insurance Eligibility

Health plans in the Health Insurance Marketplace are offered by private insurance companies during a specified open enrollment period.

By filling out a Marketplace application, you can find out if you qualify for a lower cost for your health insurance based on your income. You can only purchase a health care plan from the Marketplace or make changes to your current plan purchased from the Marketplace during the open enrollment period unless you have a qualifying life event.

Next Open Enrollment Period:
November 1, 2015 – January 31, 2016

Marketplace qualifying life events:

  • Getting married
  • Having, adopting or placement of a child or children
  • Permanently moving to a new area that offers different health plan options
  • Loss of other health care coverage
  • Loss of coverage due to job loss or divorce, loss of eligibility for Medicaid or CHIP, expiration of COBRA or a health plan being decertified.
  • Those already enrolled in Marketplace coverage, having a change in income or household status that affects eligibility for tax credits or cost-sharing reductions

These events do not count as loss of coverage and are not qualifying life events:

  • Voluntarily quitting other coverage, or being terminated for not paying you premiums
  • Losing coverage that is not minimum essential coverage Most special enrollment periods last 60 days from the date of the qualifying life event.

To Apply or Re-Apply For Medicaid

As of January 1, 2014, the State of Ohio has expanded Medicaid to include those up to 138% of the poverty level. There is no limited enrollment period for Medicaid — which means if you qualify, you can enroll in Medicaid at any time. If you need assistance, CHS has staff available to help you apply or re-apply for Medicaid.
