How do consumers receive Medicaid services?
Once enrolled, consumers can get health care services from a Medicaid provider who accepts Medicaid as health insurance. This is generally called fee-for-service Medicaid. Consumers may be required to get their services from a Medicaid managed care plan. Both fee-for-service Medicaid and the managed care plans provide all medically necessary primary, specialty and emergency care, and preventive services.

Ohio Medicaid also provides both home health care and facility-based services for those consumers requiring long-term care services. Home care services allow consumers to remain in their homes and communities. Long-term care services are also available for consumers needing care in nursing homes and facilities for persons with mental retardation. Alternatives to institutional care are offered through home and community-based services waivers (e.g., PASSPORT, Ohio Home Care).
