The Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) has asked us to share this important announcement regarding changes to Medicaid.
**Make sure that your address and email is up to date and current with your County Department of Jobs and Family Services.**
Since March 2020, and as part of the Covid-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE), States have been prohibited from disenrolling members from Medicaid, even if they were found no longer to be eligible. Effective February 1, 2023, ODM has resumed routine Medicaid eligibility requirements. ODM will begin sending out termination letters to those members who no longer qualified for Medicaid but were allowed to remain on Medicaid due to the PHE. This process is called “Medicaid Unwinding”. Medicaid Renewal Packets and Request for Information will also be sent to all Medicaid recipients via US Mail.

**Renewal Packets and Information Requests going to the wrong address will result in termination of Medicaid coverage.**
