  • Once I have my newborn how long will they be eligible for Medicaid?

    If an individual is receiving Medicaid while giving birth the newborn is considered a deemed newborn for Medicaid purposes and will be eligible to receive Medicaid for the first full 12-months of their life.

  • What is Healthchek?

    Healthchek is Ohio Medicaid’s child health benefit for children under age 21. The Federal name for this
    benefit is Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic and Treatment services, or EPSDT. The purpose of Healthchek is to
    find and treat health problems early, so your child can have the best health and development possible. Healthchek is
    free and covers Healthchek exam (well child check-ups), hearing, vision and dental screenings to diagnose any health
    problems your child might have. It also covers medical and dental treatments and equipment that may be determined as
    medically necessary.

  • Is Healthchek different from Medicaid?

    No. Healthchek is the children’s health component of Medicaid for children under age 21.
    Under Healthchek, your child can receive medically necessary services or equipment that would be covered by federal
    Medicaid whether or not the service is covered by Ohio's Medicaid plan for adults. Also, your child can get more of a
    certain service than would be provided to adults. For example, a child could get more physical therapy than an adult
    would get if the added therapy is medically necessary for the child. Children also can get more dental care than adults.

  • Do I have to fill out an extra application for my child to receive Healthchek services?

    No. Once your child is enrolled in Ohio Medicaid, he or she can receive Healthchek services. Ask the
    Healthchek Coordinator at your County Department of Job and Family Services’ (CDJFS) for more information about
    Healthchek services.  

  • What kind of services can my child get through Healthchek?

    In addition to the screening services, your child can get medically necessary services or equipment that your
    child's Medicaid provider recommends. Some services must be approved by Ohio Medicaid or the managed care plan
    your child is enrolled in. Examples of available services or equipment include:
    • Physician and clinic services
    • Inpatient and outpatient hospital services
    • Laboratory and x‐ray services
    • Home health services and private duty nursing services
    • Personal care services
    • Care coordination or Case management services
    • Physical therapy and related services
    • Any medical care or other type of remedial care (example: occupational therapy) recognized under state law
    • Other diagnostic, screening and rehabilitative services recommended by a licensed Medicaid provider
