Individuals who qualify through PE will then be provided with the information to apply for full Medicaid coverage.
Hospitals, Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), departments of jobs & family services, local health departments, and WIC clinics are eligible to participate in Ohio's PE initiative. To become a Qualified Entity (QE), providers are required to complete a couple of steps.
Step 1: Read the Presumptive Eligibility Training Guide (Please Also See Most Recent Functional Updates Above)
Provider training is essential in determining eligibility for presumptively eligible individuals. Proper training ensures the effective follow through of full Medicaid application processing and that all consumer information is successfully entered into the MITS portal.
Step 2: Send in the Acknowledgement Form
Qualified entities will be required to sign an acknowledgement form that will specify the responsibilities and obligations associated with being authorized to make presumptive eligibility determinations. Statewide training for providers’ MITS portal administrators will be required and administered by state staff.
