The Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) will now require that all health care providers participating in Ohio Medicaid and MyCare Ohio have an active Medicaid number. This includes providers contracted with Managed Care Organizations (MCOs). Read the announcement from CareSource here. This policy change will impact social workers in private practice and agency settings.

If you are currently credentialed or considering becoming credentialed with an MCO, you should first begin the process of enrolling in Medicaid to avoid payment disruption. Start the process to obtain a Medicaid number here.
