  • Did you know?• Foster care youth who "age out" of foster care in Ohio are eligible for Medicaid until their 21st birthdays.• After being initially signed up for Medicaid at age 18, former foster youth must stay in touch with Medicaid, so that they dont lose services at age 19 or 20.• If your local Medicaid office is not aware of this provision, please contact the Medicaid Hotline: 1-800-324-8680
  • What does the future hold?• The Affordable Healthcare Act expanded medical coverage to young people under their parents’ coverage until age 26.• In January 2014, a provision of the Affordable Care Act will enable young adults served by the foster care system to continue their Medicaid benefits through age 26.• How exactly will that work?
