MyCare Long Term Care Program Changes

Beginning on November 1, 2017, new MyCare members who enroll in Buckeye Health Plan (Buckeye) will have their care managed by Buckeye’s RN Care Managers. The Buckeye Care Managers will communicate directly with you regarding the medical management of your patients as there will no longer be an Optum Nurse Practitioner assigned to your patient’s care. 

On January 1, 2018, the Buckeye Care Managers will assume care management responsibilities for all enrolled MyCare members residing in Nursing Facilities, and Optum Nurse Practitioners will no longer be responsible for the medical management of any MyCare members enrolled in Buckeye.

Buckeye is actively working on contracting with Nurse Practitioners throughout Ohio to provide medical management services to our MyCare members upon referral from the member’s physician and/or the Buckeye Care Manager. The Care Manager will notify you regarding referrals to the Nurse Practitioner for any of your patients. We appreciate the care that you provide for Buckeye’s MyCare members. We are available to discuss any questions or concerns with you. You can reach one of our representatives at 1-866-246-4358. Answers to frequently asked questions and other resources are also available on our website.
