|How do I get medical care?|

|What plans work with OHP? |
|How can OHP members find a health care provider? |
Members in an OHP plan can call the plan to get a list of providers currently accepting new patients. Some plans have online provider directories.
Members not in a plan must call health care providers directly to find out if they accept OHP (Medicaid) patients.
|Can members in an OHP plan seek services from a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) or Rural Health Clinic (RHC)? |
Yes, but only when the FQHC or RHC is part of their plan’s provider panel.
|For members, what are the advantages of managed or coordinated care?|
- Access to a network of health care providers. If you’re not in a plan, you must call health care providers yourself to find a provider taking new Medicaid patients.
- Access to preventive services. Plans offer prevention programs (e.g., tobacco cessation), which may be easier to access than if you are not in a plan.
- Increased Quality of Care. Plans have systems for improving the quality of care for all of its members.
