Ohio Medicaid Recipients See Revamped Program
Many Ohioans on Medicaid will see a revamped program under new contracts with health plans taking effect this month.

The state recently re-bid its contracts serving the Medicaid population. Beneficiaries now can choose from five plans. They are the Buckeye Community Health Plan, CareSource, Molina Healthcare, Paramount Advantage and United Healthcare.

The plans also have to develop financial incentives for hospitals, doctors and other providers that are tied to improving quality and patients’ health.
