Q: Will my benefits be different?
A:
Your MyCare
Ohio plan will include all benefits available through
traditional Medicare and Medicaid programs, including
long-term care services and supports (if applicable), and
behavioral health services. You may also be eligible to
receive added services that your current programs can-
not offer (for example: extra dental visits), depending
on which MyCare Ohio plan you choose.

care?
A:
The MyCare Ohio program will help to make

way. Each person enrolled in a MyCare Ohio plan will
have: SINGLE POINT OF CONTACT: The MyCare Ohio
plan you choose will be your single point of contact to
talk about your Medicaid and Medicare benefits. By dial-
ing one phone number, you can talk to someone about
all of your health care needs. PERSON-CENTERED CARE:
The plans will provide information and help you to make
choices about your health care, provide support for you
to remain independent and in the community, and pro-
vide care management that includes face-to-face visits
in your home.
Q: How does MyCare Ohio work? When do I
need to enroll?
A:
You will receive a letter informing
you of the date when you must enroll. This letter will
also give you instructions on how to pick a plan and how
to enroll. You will be able to enroll by phone, online, or
by mail. There will be assistance in the community to
help you understand your options.
