At CareSource we know that some high-risk infants need weight monitoring for the first few weeks or months. This can be vital for their continued health. Checking your baby’s weight is one of the easiest ways to make sure your baby is growing at a proper pace. It can also help show if there are potential health issues. CareSource is pleased to offer home infant scales as an enhanced benefit.
Easy access to a scale at home gives you many benefits such as:
- Routine weight check-ins for your baby without leaving your home
- Prevention of potential exposure to COVID-19, flu and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV)
- Early identification and monitoring of your baby’s growth and development
- Enhanced opportunity to get feedback during a telehealth visit
- Avoid emergency room visits that aren’t needed
You must ask for the home infant scale or it must be ordered by your provider. Call Member Services at 1-844-607-2829 (TTY: 1-800-743-3333 or 711) to learn more.

CareSource Re-Entry Program™
Transitioning home after being incarcerated can be a challenge for most people. Returning citizens often lack the resources they need to get back on their feet. It can be hard to find safe housing, food and health care. They may also be dealing with mental health issues or struggle with substance use.
Nearly one in three people will return to prison within three years of their release without proper support. CareSource works with the Indiana Department of Correction to help returning citizens transition back into daily life. The goal is to give them the tools they need for self-sufficiency as they return to their communities.
CareSource has Community Justice Liaisons (CJLs) to help returning citizens in this process. CJLs go over their medical and mental health needs, how to find area resources, and help them set future goals. They can also answer questions like:
- How can I get help to go back to school or get a job?
- How can I get counseling?
- How can I find out about health care?
- How can I find out about local support?
Our CJLs make sure that all returning citizens have Indiana Medicaid when they are released. Returning citizens can also get help finding a job or going back to school by working with a Life Coach through CareSource Life Services.
Learn more about the CareSource Re-entry Program by calling 317-982-6495 or emailing IndianaRe-entry@CareSource.com.
CareSource will cover the cost of expungement up to $500 for eligible returning citizens. These returning citizens must:
- Not have pending charges in any state
- Pay all fines, fees, court costs and restitution (CareSource will help cover these costs with this fund)
- Wait the required time since the offense or conviction
- Be part of the CareSource Re-entry Program or CareSource JobConnect through CareSource Life Services
- Get a letter of approval from the prosecutor’s office

Rides should be easy and enjoyable. Your driver is trained to treat you with respect and to think of your needs. Please treat the driver in the way you wish to be treated. Please follow these steps:
- Call to arrange non-emergency ride two business days in advance. (Saturday, Sunday and holidays are not business days).
- Be able to provide the complete address, phone number, and who you will be seeing at the doctor’s office.
- Be at the pick-up address. Be there at the earliest time given to you by the transportation service.
- To cancel your ride, call at least two hours before your pick-up time.
- When your visit is finished, call the transportation company for your return trip.
You need to be ready for your pickup. You should be there at the beginning of your pickup time. The transportation company can only wait 10 minutes before you will be marked as a no show. If you cannot keep your appointment, you must call the transportation company as soon as possible. The transportation company reserves the right to take away your ride benefits. This can be for six months after three no shows within three months.
What is a No Show?
- A member is not at the pick-up location
- A member cannot be seen at the pick-up location
- A member is not on-time at the pick-up location
The driver will wait 10 minutes, then will leave. If you have any questions, please call Member Services.
