Will I lose Medicaid benefits if I join Paramount Advantage Medicaid?

No. Joining a managed care plan will not cause you to lose your Medicaid, WIC or other public assistance benefits. You will have all the same benefits as you did under standard Medicaid but with additional resources and services provided by Paramount Advantage Medicaid. And you’ll get one ID card that replaces the monthly Medicaid card.

What is a managed care plan?

A managed care plan provides healthcare services to eligible Ohio Medicaid recipients. Each plan is overseen by the Department of Medicaid to provide the same services as standard Medicaid. The idea of having managed care plans is to help improve your health and wellbeing.
