Ohio Medicaid converts beneficiary data from old to new system
Over the weekend of July 30th, 2016, Ohio Medicaid converted all Medicaid beneficiaries in the Aged, Blind or Disabled (ABD) category from the old Medicaid eligibility system (CRIS-E) to the new Ohio Benefits eligibility system. This transition will accomplish Ohio’s conversion of Medicaid eligibility from the old “209(b)” method to the new “1634” method. Medicaid indicated they expected few - if any - problems to occur during this process.
However, Medicaid asks providers to review your client caseloads and alert Ohio Medicaid of any cases where it appears that clients have met their Medicaid “spend down” within the preceding twelve months but have not been identified as Medicaid eligible following this weekend’s data conversion.
