Ohio Department of Medicaid Releases 2016 Managed Care Plans Report Card

In a continuation of the state’s efforts to inform consumers and provide incentive for health plans to improve their services, the Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) has released its second annual report card for Ohio Medicaid managed care plans.

To compile the report, ODM used data provided by the plans and patient surveys to evaluate each plan on the following five categories: access to care, doctors’ communication and service, keeping kids healthy, managing illness, and women’s health.

CareSource had the highest rankings, scoring above average in three categories (keeping kids healthy, managing illness, and women’s health), and scoring average in the other two categories.

Molina Healthcare scored above average in two categories (managing illness and women’s health), and improved this year to average in access to care.

UnitedHealthcare Community Plan scored above average in two categories (access to care and doctors’ communication and service), but scored below average in two categories (managing illness and women’s health).

Buckeye Health Plan scored above average in women’s health and average in doctors’ communication, but was ranked below average in the remaining three categories.  

Paramount Advantage received average scores in all five categories.
