From the beginning, CareSource has been changing the face of healthcare.
CareSource is one of the nation’s largest Medicaid managed care companies and a leading provider of quality health care plans and programs. Headquartered in Dayton, Ohio, the $11.2 billion company manages health care for more than half of Ohio’s Medicaid recipients, as well as members in Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, and West Virginia. Building on its legacy of providing quality health care coverage for Medicaid consumers, the company continues to expand to serve members in Arkansas in 2022.
In addition to Medicaid coverage, CareSource has a diverse offering of insurance plans on the Health Insurance Marketplace. The company also offers Medicare Advantage plans that help consumers close the gap of coverage as they age. CareSource serves more than 2 million members across six states supported by a growing workforce of 4,500.
As a managed healthcare organization, CareSource focuses on prevention with a goal. CareSource’s holistic model of care breaks down the hurdles of clinical treatment and social qualities that can lead to reduced health outcomes. The company has launched an award-winning prescriber outreach program that has resulted in a significant reduction in opioid prescriptions. Its Life Services® program is widely recognized in the managed care industry for partnering with community agencies on behalf of members to reduce dependency on governmental services.

CareSource built its nine-story headquarters in Dayton in 2007.

CareSource also renovated another nearby building, creating a campus for its 3,000 Dayton-area employees.
The acquisition of new CareSource markets and contract expansions in Indiana and Georgia has fueled significant growth in recent years, requiring additional back-office support and facility space in Dayton.
