Compliance & Safety Check Nurse/Reviewer (Medicaid Health Systems Specialist – RN) | Ohio Department of Medicaid




The Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) is committed to improving the health of Ohioans and strengthening communities and families through quality care. In 2020, ODM introduced a new vision for Ohio’s Medicaid program — one that strengthens Ohio’s future and ensures everyone has the chance to live life to its full potential.

Today, more than 90 percent of Ohio Medicaid members are supported by managed care organizations. During the year ahead, ODM will begin implementing a new vision for care; focusing on the individual, a strong partnership among MCOs and the department, and supporting specialization in addressing critical needs.

A program that puts the individual first

They Are

Adopting Governor DeWine’s philosophy of service to Ohioans, ODM embarked on an aggressive effort to redesign its managed care program. The goal is to provide more personal, holistic care and supports for millions of Ohioans served by Medicaid. Listening to feedback from more than 1,100 individuals and organizations we identified five procurement goals that would put the individual front and center of Medicaid’s program and policy decisions.

  • Emphasize a personalized care experience,
  • Improve care for children and adults with complex behavioral health needs,
  • Improve wellness and health outcomes,
  • Support providers in better patient care and
  • Increase program transparency and accountability.

Unless required by legislation or union contract, starting salary will be set at step 1 of the pay range.
