How to Enroll in a Molina Dual Options MyCare Ohio Medicare-Medicaid Health Plan
What is MyCare Ohio?
MyCare Ohio is a program that helps improve the way your Medicare and Medicaid benefits work together.
How do I know if I am eligible for MyCare Ohio?
If you are eligible for MyCare Ohio, you will receive a letter from the Ohio Department of Medicaid telling you that you are eligible. Learn more about eligibility.
How do I choose a health plan?
Your eligibility letter will tell you when you must select a health plan to provide both your Medicaid and Medicare benefits. Molina Dual Options is one of the plans you can choose. You have the right to choose the health plan that is best for you. However, if you do not choose a plan, one will be chosen for you.
What are the extra benefits of the Molina Dual Options plan?
Molina Dual Options offers extra benefits to our members:
- You pay nothing for 30 rides, or legs, each calendar year to plan-approved appointments.
- You get $60 every quarter to spend on over-the-counter items you need. If you do not use all $60 in a quarter, any unused amount will carry over quarter to quarter through the end of the year. Shipping will not cost you anything.
- You get $0 copays on all prescription drugs.
- You can visit FitnessCoach like gyms and yoga studios. You pay nothing to use as many locations as you choose or get at-home fitness options instead.
Also, the plan is designed to make your Medicaid and Medicare benefits work together better. That means one ID card, one toll-free Member Services phone number and a Care Manager to help coordinate all your needed services.
