Healthcare Exchanges and Medicaid Expansion

As a patient of The MetroHealth System we want you to know that under the Affordable Care Act, you and your family may be able to get health insurance through the Health Insurance Market Place, also known as HealthCare Exchanges, or through Ohio’s Expanded Medicaid Program.

The Health Insurance Market Place or Exchanges are organizations set up to provide standardized health plans to purchase. You may be eligible to receive federal subsidies to assist with the premiums.

Ohio has expanded its Medicaid Program to include low-income adults without children and additionally, families who previously may not have qualified.

We can assist with the Medicaid application and redetermination process.

  1. If you would like to schedule an appointment at any of our many locations for Medicaid application assistance, please call 216-957-2325.
  2. You can also apply for Medicaid by visiting www.benefits.ohio.gov
  3. You can also apply for Medicaid over the phone by calling 1-844-640-6446
