The Ohio Home Care Waiver Program (OHC) meets the needs of people who prefer to get long-term care services and supports in their home or community, rather than in an institutional setting. CareSource has contracted with the Ohio Department of Medicaid in the role of a case management agency.
CareSource, in partnership with Council on Aging, delivers case management services for the OHC program to help people meeting Medicaid financial criteria, who are under 60 years of age and assessed with an Intermediate or Skilled Level of Care, along with other program requirements.
Please visit CareSource’s website for more information.
