Dreams Within Reach

CareSource was born in Dayton, Ohio in 1989 as a result of a social worker’s frustration working with the existing managed care model. Our very first Medicaid plans promised individualized assistance and placed a strong emphasis on people over profit. In that regard, very little has changed in the three decades since.

CareSource Medicaid plans are arguably the most celebrated of our entire suite of health plans. Our members appreciate the genuine concern for their health care and keen attention to support. And our state legislative partners recognize that the ultimate goal of our model of holistic care is to help our members rise out of Medicaid and into a life of greater independence.

To that end, we often lay claim to being the only Medicaid plan that’s trying to get our members off Medicaid.

As we continue to extend our services into other states, our Medicaid promise remains: to deliver excellent benefits and support to our members and cost efficiency and accountability for our government stakeholders.
