Ohio Medicaid Renewal with Buckeye Health Plan

The Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) will send you an Ohio Medicaid renewal form every 12 months. ODM mails out the renewal form one year from the date of your original application.

Ohio Medicaid renewal is required to redetermine your eligibility for Medicaid. Buckeye Health Plan cannot process your renewal because it must be processed by Ohio Benefits, but we care about you and your health. We will help explain the process every step of the way. If you have any questions, feel free to call us at: 1-866-246-4358 (TDD/TTY: 1-800-750-0750)
