Medicaid Managed Care Eligibility

Most Medicaid consumers are eligible for membership in an Ohio Medicaid managed care plan. Certain Medicaid consumers, however, are excluded from Medicaid managed care membership or are not required to enroll in a Medicaid managed care plan (i.e. membership is voluntary), as noted below:

BCMH is defined as the Bureau for Children with Medical Handicaps


Consumers who are EXCLUDED from Medicaid managed care membership: 

• Medicaid eligible Individuals on waivers

• Medicaid eligible Individuals that are institutionalized

• Individuals eligible for both Medicaid and Medicare

• Individuals eligible for Medicaid that have a spend-down

• BCMH children diagnosed with cancer, cystic fibrosis, or hemophilia


*Please note that the current exclusion of children diagnosed with cancer, hemophilia, and cystic fibrosis that are enrolled will end as of 6/30/2014. Effective 7/1/2014, families of these BCMH children will have the ability to choose managed care if they feel it is in the best interest of their child.


Consumers who are NOT REQUIRED TO ENROLL in a Medicaid managed care plan: 

  • Individuals under 19 years of age and are receiving title IV-E federal foster care maintenance
  • Individuals under 19 years of age that are in foster care or other out of home placement.
