Conference calls will help MyCare Ohio consumers share their experiences
The Ohio Consumer Voice for Integrated Care (OCVIC) is convening monthly statewide conference calls to hear from consumers and family caregivers about what is working or not working for them under MyCare Ohio. The calls are held the last Friday of every month.
“Our list, good or bad, will be communicated to the (health) plans, state, and federal government to ensure the best practices are used throughout every region and the problems are fixed immediately throughout every region,” said John Arnold, OCVIC Project Coordinator. “We have a golden opportunity to shape the outcome and delivery system of MyCare Ohio with consumer input.”
The Universal Health Care Action Network of Ohio (UHCAN Ohio) received a grant through Community Catalyst to enhance consumer participation in MyCare Ohio. UHCAN created OCVIC which consists of a statewide coalition and three regional coalitions of aging and disability advocates in Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Columbus. A major goal of OCVIC is to organize consumers so that they are equipped to participate meaningfully in MyCare Ohio’s required community advisory councils.
The monthly OCVIC conference calls are free. The call in number is: (877) 366-0711. The participant code is 53257144#. Click here for a flier about the conference calls.
