Medicaid is a federal entitlement program that funds health care for people with limited income and resources, including people with disabilities. Each state administers its own Medicaid program and has substantial authority over the eligibility criteria, so Medicaid programs vary widely from state-to-state. Certain services are required by federal law for the state programs to cover, while many of the covered services are determined by the state. In Ohio, the Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) administers the state's Medicaid program. This section provides information about Ohio's Medicaid program.
