MyCare Ohio is a new managed care program for Ohioans who receive both Medicare and Medicaid benefits. The program is administered by the Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM), but because new programs can be confusing, we have an ombudsman dedicated to answering your questions and helping you navigate this new program.
Please contact our ombudsman LeVon at 513-458-5536 about MyCare Ohio.
