Medicaid Eligibility and Enrollment
If you are uninsured, our Care Coordinator and Case Manager can help you determine your Medicaid eligibility and assist you with signing up for medical coverage through Franklin County Job and Family Services.
Ohio has granted permission for community health centers to participate in Presumptive Eligibility (PE) Program. The PE program allows us to provide immediate access to health services by giving patients and their families temporary health coverage through Medicaid if they are presumed by us to be eligible under the current Ohio Medicaid guidelines.
To apply for temporary and ongoing Medicaid, you will need to bring to your first appointment: proof of one month of household income (current within the last 30 days), social security numbers for all family members requesting assistance, and identification for all family members requesting assistance.
Good Faith Estimate
Are you worried about what the cost of your care will be without insurance?
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance, or who are not using insurance, an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. If this applies to you:
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate,” whether you’re getting services here or anywhere else. This explains the total expected cost of your medical care for non-emergency items or services, including medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment and hospital fees.
You can ask your provider for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an appointment, or at least one business day before your medical service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. So make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate!
For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or ask a member of our staff.
