Renewing Medicaid Benefits

If you don't renew, you will lose Medicaid and Buckeye Health Plan coverage.

The Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) will send you a Medicaid renewal form every 12 months. ODM mails out the renewal form one year from the date of your original application. This is required to redetermine your eligibility for Medicaid.

Buckeye cannot process your renewal, 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)
