Big changes are coming for Ohioans who are 60+ and Ohioans with disabilities. The Ohio Department of Medicaid has announced changes to streamline the Medicaid program by eliminating spend-down after August 2016. The changes will bring a greater number of people into Medicaid but will also result in some people losing their benefits. The transition is complex, continues to evolve, and holds severe repercussions for many Ohioans’ health care coverage.
