Paramount Advantage to exit Ohio Medicaid Managed Care Program in central/southeast region

Paramount has decided to scale back the service area of its Medicaid plan. The insurance company will cease to provide Paramount Advantage Medicaid in the central/southeast region of Ohio. It will continue to serve the west and northeast regions.

The central/southeast region includes these counties: Athens, Belmont, Coshocton, Crawford, Delaware, Fairfield, Fayette, Franklin, Gallia, Guernsey, Harrison, Hocking, Jackson, Jefferson, Knox, Lawrence, Licking, Logan, Madison, Marion, Meigs, Monroe, Morgan, Morrow, Muskingum, Noble, Perry, Pickaway, Pike, Ross, Scioto, Union, Vinton and Washington.

For Paramount Medicaid members in the central/southeast region, they will choose a new Medicaid managed care plan for their health insurance in the next few months. Paramount will work closely with members and the Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) to make sure members move seamlessly to their new plans in a way that is least disruptive for both members and providers. We are committed to keeping both members and providers informed through this several month transition.

For Paramount Medicaid members in the west and northeast regions,nothing will change. These members will continue to be members of the Paramount Medicaid managed care plan with the same health insurance benefits.

Paramount Medicaid Providers will remain contracted with Paramount and continue to be eligible to see Paramount members – regardless of where the member lives.
