OhioRISE Care Management Entities Announced

The Ohio Department of Medicaid, in conjunction with Aetna, held a press conference to officially announce the selection of the twenty OhioRISE Care Management Entities (CMEs).

As a facet of the new OhioRISE plan, CMEs will be responsible for the development of individualized care plans for each enrollee using a wraparound child and family team approach. Through a holistic approach, CMEs will bring together communities of support to coordinate the needs and services of children and families enrolled in OhioRISE.

We are extremely proud of all of our member agencies who were selected by Aetna to do this important work based on their proven records of excellence in empowering families for success. We look forward to working with them and all of you to continue to improve child and family services in Ohio.

Ohio Children’s Alliance members awarded a CME region include: National Youth Advocate Program, Lighthouse Youth and Family Services, Integrated Services for Behavioral Health, The Village Network, The Buckeye Ranch, Wingspan Care Group, Ohio Guidestone, Positive Education Program, Ravenwood Health, and Cadence Care Network.
