Benefits Representative at HCDDS help people we support obtain and maintain public benefits such as food assistance and Medicaid. For those we serve who do not live in a household where others receive public assistance, we are available to act as the Medicaid Authorized Representative for the person’s public benefits. This means that our staff completes the initial application as well as the required annual re-determination for the benefits. Our team can assist with gathering required documentation and coordinate with the local Ohio Department of Job and Family services to ensure successful processing of the application/renewal.
Benefit Representatives are also available to consult with people we serve to help them navigate the public benefits system. This might include assisting with applying for and maintaining Social Security Benefits, analyzing what benefits are available, and enrolling in programs such as the Medicaid Buy in for Workers with Disabilities that allow them to earn money and continue their public benefits.
