MyCare Ohio is a managed care program designed for Ohioans who receive BOTH Medicaid and Medicare benefits. This program has a team approach to coordinating your care based on your needs – a team with you at the center.

MyCare Ohio enrollment and eligibility
The MyCare Ohio program is currently only available in 29 counties. Not all plans are available in each of the 29 counties. The plans available to you depend on the county in which you reside. The plans available are Aetna Better Health of Ohio, Buckeye Health Plan, CareSource, Molina HealthCare, and United Healthcare Community Plan.
In the counties where MyCare Ohio is available, you have two choices for receiving your MyCare Ohio benefits:
  1. Dual benefits: A MyCare Ohio plan provides both the Medicare and Medicaid benefits for you. You are eligible to receive added benefits of the plan, such as $0 copayments for prescription drugs covered by Medicare, additional transportation services, and more.
  2. Medicaid-Only Benefits: A MyCare Ohio plan only provides Medicaid-covered services. You will continue to receive prescription drugs through your Medicare Part D plans and any associated co-payments. Your Medicare benefits will be provided through traditional Medicare or through a private insurance company, commonly referred to as a Medicare Advantage plan.
If you meet the following criteria, your Medicaid benefits must be provided by a MyCare Ohio plan:
  • Are 18 or older; and
  • Live in one of the 29 counties; and
  • Currently have full Medicaid and Medicare parts A, B, and D.
You cannot enroll in a MyCare Ohio plan if you:
  • Are under 18.
  • Do not live in one of the 29 counties.
