Ohio Home Care Waiver
Welcome to the Ohio Home Care Waiver program. The Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) has contracted with CareSource to manage these waivers in northeast, southeast and central Ohio. These waivers provide cost-effective home and community-based services so that members can stay in their homes and communities.
CareSource is partnering with local Area Agencies on Aging to help individuals on the waiver obtain home and community-based care. The local Area Agencies on Aging have many years of experience providing waiver case management, and work closely with many home and community-based service providers in the community.
Individual Case Managers from the local Area Agency on Aging coordinate care services for individuals on the waiver. Providers should contact the respective Area Agency on Aging regarding questions about services for individuals on the waiver.
Regarding billing for services, providers interact directly with the state. All billing and reimbursement for services is handled directly through the state. No claims are submitted to CareSource for Ohio Home Care Waiver program services.
