In recognition of the ongoing enrollment of OhioRISE members and the needs to support and build the system of care related to the July 1 launch of the OhioRISE program, ODM and Aetna Better Health of Ohio (Aetna) partnered to develop a process for OhioRISE provider enrollment during this time. Organizational or individual practitioners who will be providing OhioRISE services can be screened for enrollment so that they can provide and bill for services. A new process for enrolled Medicaid providers who wish to add OhioRISE provider specialties during the provider enrollment system downtime is also in place.
On July 29, ODM released OhioRISE Provider Enrollment During System Downtime Guidance available on the Resources for Community Partners and Providers page of the OhioRISE webpage. You will find detailed information regarding the steps you should take to enroll as a Medicaid provider or enroll in OhioRISE provider specialties between Aug. 1 and Sept. 30.
If you have questions about Ohio Medicaid provider enrollment, please contact ODM’s Integrated Help Desk (IHD) at 800-686-1516, which is available Monday through Friday 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. For Aetna/OhioRISE plan contracting questions, please contact Aetna’s OhioRISE Provider Experience Help Line at 833-711-0773 (option 2), which is available Monday through Friday 7 a.m.-8 p.m.
Beginning Dec. 1, 2022, the Next Generation managed care plans will provide Ohio Medicaid managed care members more personalized healthcare benefits, such as increased access to care coordination and care management supports, that will help address their individual healthcare needs.
To assist Ohio Medicaid managed care members in choosing which Next Generation plan is the best fit for their healthcare needs, the Ohio Department of Medicaid has introduced the Next Generation Health Plan Comparison document. The Next Generation Health Plan Comparison document provides an overview of the services that all Next Generation managed care plans provide, and specific value-added services provided by each individual plan.
All Ohio Medicaid managed care members can select a Next Generation plan at any time through Nov. 30.

Ohio Medicaid encourages all managed care members to review and select the Next Generation plan that best fits their healthcare needs.

OhioRISE enrollees will receive their behavioral health benefits through Aetna (the OhioRISE plan) and their physical health services through a separate managed care organization or fee-for-service Medicaid.
Current Ohio Medicaid managed care members who do not select a plan will stay with their current plan, with the exception of Paramount members. Paramount Advantage Medicaid has been acquired by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (Anthem). Anthem is working with Paramount Advantage to continue providing your healthcare coverage and you will continue receiving healthcare coverage through Paramount Advantage until the Next Generation managed care plans begin providing healthcare coverage. At that time Anthem will be your Next Generation managed care plan. You do not need to take any action to begin receiving healthcare benefits through Anthem and there will be no disruption in your care. All Ohio Medicaid managed care members can select a different plan at any time until the end of open enrollment through Nov. 30.
Ohio Medicaid members do not need to do anything and will remain with their current managed care plan. Ohio Medicaid encourages all members to review the Next Generation plans available and select the plan that best meets their healthcare needs.

ODM will notify impacted members which plan they have been transitioned to. Members can review and select the Next Generation plan that best fits their healthcare needs at any time through open enrollment through Nov. 30. Newborns and case additions will continue to be added to managed care plans as they become Medicaid eligible during this time.
