Apply for Medicaid or MBIWD

You can apply for Medicaid and Medicaid Buy-In for Workers with Disabilities (MBIWD):

For help with your application, visit or call your local County Department of Job and Family Services (CDJFS) office or call the Ohio Medicaid Consumer Hotline at 1-800-324-8680 or 1-800-292-3572 (TTY).

Note: If you get Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, you automatically get Medicaid coverage and do not need to apply separately.
