WARREN — In an effort to “ensure our most vulnerable citizens maintain reliable access to food resources,” Ohio’s five Medicaid Managed Care Plans will offer free transportation services to and from food banks, food pantries, food clinics and grocery stores as part of the benefit plan.

People with Medicaid plans through Buckeye Health Plan, CareSource, Molina Healthcare, Paramount Advantage and United Heathcare Community Plan can access the benefit.

“This transportation service is essential to many of our members,” states an informational email. “By undertaking this united effort on behalf of every Ohio member, we can help get food on the table for Ohioans in need during this unprecedented health crisis.

Members of the plans can find more information by calling the Ohio Department of Medicaid Member Hotline at 1-800-324-8680.
