Last week, we posted a blog about our involvement in the Ohio Association of Health Plans‘ campaign – “Get Your Well On.” As part of this campaign, we developed a couple of videos that tell the stories of how care coordination is delivered. These videos reveal how real Ohio families have benefited as a result of Medicaid Care Coordination.
“Making a More Productive Family Future”
This is a wonderful, heart-felt story of a little girl who needed cochlear implants, and how our facilitation of the health care system resulted in a truly transformational experience for the family.
“Partnering with Providers”
A real look at how CareSource, and the Health Care Home philosophy of care coordination, enhances the patient-provider relationship.
So take a look, and let us know what you think.

Where did summer go? It’s back to school time once again. The “Back to School” season has almost become a holiday. There are so many rituals associated with back to school:
Buying new school supplies like pencils, notepads, crayons, calendars, folders…maybe a new backpack?
Examining the clothing situation–new shirts, pants, socks…perhaps replacing those shoes that were outgrown during the summer?
Checking your schedule twice to make sure you’re ready to adapt to a new normal for the next nine months!?!?!?
How about getting that doctor’s appointment for an annual check-up?
Unfortunately, this ritual doesn’t always seem to make the list, which is why we partnered with our state-level association, Ohio Association of Health Plans, to launch a statewide campaign called “Get Your Well On.”
The goals of the “Get Your Well On” campaign are simply stated:
- Promote the importance of having a consistent relationship with your primary doctor
- Encourage responsible health care engagement and healthy living
Simply stated…but profoundly inspiring. Frankly, it’s our responsibility as Medicaid Care Coordination plans to forever promote the benefits of good health to our members. But this partnership with our industry in Ohio has been an inspirational experience.
Our organization – OAHP – has partnered with associations and communities across the state to bring this message to the urban, suburban and rural. Organizations like the Ohio PTA, Ohio Benefit Bank, Ohio Association of Second Harvest Food Banks, Ohio Child Care Resource & Referral Association, Ohio Council of Churches, Special Olympics Ohio, Family Children First Councils, Ohio After School Network, and many, many more have been instrumental in championing our cause.
We are meeting at a true grassroots level with people that are touching the lives of hundreds of thousands of Ohioans. And they are so appreciative of the materials we are giving to them:
We’ve been organizing events in Columbus, Cleveland, Dayton, Toledo, Akron and more…inviting the passionate agencies at the community level to hear our message. We’ve partnered with large conferences to voice our point of view to hundreds at a time.
The basic comment we get most often as we engage with communities—
“This information can never be promoted enough. Thank you for giving me the tools to help promote this to the people I work with.”
Medicaid Care Coordination plans are forever promoting healthy living and prevention to our members. It’s the philosophy of this type of health care delivery. Our “Get Your Well On” campaign is casting a larger net across Ohio, touching lives beyond the underserved.
So maybe a new back-to-school ritual for all of us should be a reflection on our health in general…and then the drive to take action. Our Governor made it official this week with his proclamation. Now we all have a friendly reminder to “Get Our Well On.”
