Dayton, Ohio, UNITED STATES


DAYTON, Ohio, Oct. 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CareSource, a nationally recognized nonprofit health plan, and Healthcare Highways, a local health network and administrative organization that has served Oklahoma for the past decade, have announced a new joint venture called CareSource Oklahoma. CareSource Oklahoma intends to submit a bid on the Oklahoma Medicaid business that was formally announced by the Oklahoma Health Care Authority on October 15.

The partners came together to leverage their combined strengths. CareSource Oklahoma provides a powerful combination of both a leading managed care organization with 30 years of experience and a strong local partner who knows health care in Oklahoma. Healthcare Highways has been in Oklahoma since 2010 and has built a reputation on having a robust provider network.

“Healthcare Highways saw an incredible synergy in mission with CareSource,” said Brett Coleman, President of Healthcare Highways of Oklahoma. “That’s what makes this partnership so special, we both care deeply about the people we serve and we are excited to be a difference maker in Oklahoma. 

CareSource is known as an innovator in the health care industry and has been a leader in tackling key issues around social determinants of health. With a unique member-centric focus, the organization has developed game-changing programs around the Medicaid member that are market tested.

“As a mission-focused nonprofit, CareSource isn’t your typical health plan,” said Chad Pendleton, Vice President, Business Development, CareSource. “When people think about insurance companies, they often think of huge publicly traded companies focused on making profits for shareholders. CareSource is unique because we put people over profits and focus on making a lasting difference in the health and well-being of our members.”
