AmeriHealth Caritas Selected to Serve Ohio’s Medicaid and CHIP Populations

PHILADELPHIA , April 13 /Businesswire/ - AmeriHealth Caritas announced today that it has been selected by Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) to help Ohio Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) program enrollees access quality health care. Ohio has more than 3 million Medicaid and CHIP enrollees with diverse backgrounds and wide-ranging needs who require solutions that address their health as well as the social determinants of health, such as education, job training, transportation, and housing.

“Medicaid is a vital program for ensuring every American, regardless of economic status, race, disability, gender or sexual orientation, has access to quality health care. Through strong partnerships, we believe it can serve as a platform to help people lift themselves out of difficult circumstances and find opportunities to achieve their American Dream,” said AmeriHealth Caritas Chairman and CEO Paul A. Tufano. “We look forward to providing Ohioans with our innovative, whole person model of care with a focus on solutions that will improve their life outcomes and building strong working relationships with state officials, local providers, and vital community organizations that can support our mission to help people get care, stay well, and build healthy communities.”

Ohio’s Medicaid managed care program includes physical health, behavioral health, dental, vision, and non-emergency medical transportation services. AmeriHealth Caritas will be one of six managed care organizations serving the program effective in early 2022.
