Yeah, my sister had Medicaid through Caresource and they were great. Then she had to sign up to Medicare, and while Medicaid pays the other 20%, she forgot to fill out the provider option and now she's got United Health for that. She hasn't had a problem yet, but we'll see how it works out. I picked Caresource because it was the only option that Muskingum Valley Health takes & it's $200 per month + 20% co pay. Which is basically the same as Medicare and I'm fine with that, only I really do need a new hip and am expected to start working full time plus because my client's primary caregiver is quitting. If I can get my leg fixed before the end of February, I'm in deep shit. I can barely get through 32 hours a week now, I can't imagine pulling more hours without some relief.No, it appears to be different. For example, based on my friends experience, she could only receive care at Metro and use Metro doctors. She had to change physicians and her network, which was the Cleveland Clinic. There is a big difference between the Clinic and Metro. My hospital sees a lot of Medicaid patients and I have yet to see something denied. Seriously. After her unemployment ran out, she eventually qualified for Medicaid for a few months until she found another job. It was Care Source as well and a totally different policy, according to her.
