It may seem simple but transportations plays a huge role in receiving health care for so many. That’s why CareSource partners with transportation experts to ensure members can get to appointments that improve their health.

 “We know our members face challenges that may take a more immediate priority than getting a routine wellness check from a primary care provider,” said Karin VanZant, Vice President of Integrated Community Partnerships at CareSource. “If we can remove a barrier like transportation, we can clear the way to our members to focus more on their health.”

“We’re incredibly proud of our partnership with LogistiCare and CareSource,” said Megan Callahan, VP of Healthcare, Lyft. “Together, we’re breaking down transportation barriers to care and providing Ohio’s Medicaid members with the reliable connections they need to achieve better health.”
