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.
