Medicaid Managed Care Plans

People accessing services through a home and community-based services waiver, like the department's Level One, Individual Options, or Self-Empowered Life Funding waivers, can enroll in a Medicaid managed care plan, which offers benefits like

  • one permanent card, rather than a new paper card each month,
  • more health care providers in your network and help finding health care providers,
  • a dedicated toll-free number for questions and 24-hour nurse advice line,
  • health and wellness programs,
  • multiple ways to give feedback on the quality of the care you get,
  • and additional benefits like vision, dental, and transportation.

Enrollment in a managed care plan is completely optional. Your waiver services stay the same if you choose to use a managed care plan or not. Learn more about Medicaid managed care plans.


Electronic Visit Verification

The Ohio Department of Medicaid began using Electronic Visit Verification or EVV for many home and community-based services in January 2018.

EVV is an electronic system that verifies when provider visits occur and documents the precise time services begin and end. It ensures that people with developmental disabilities receive their medically necessary services.

The Ohio Department of Medicaid website offers more information about EVV, including training for providers.
