How do I cancel my CareSource account in Ohio?

Only during specified times of the year, known as enrollment periods, can you cancel your membership in our plan. During the Annual Enrollment Period, all members have the option to leave the plan (October 15 to December 7 of each year). During the Open Enrollment Period, anyone participating in a Medicare Advantage Plan (except an MSA plan) can switch plans or return to Original Medicare (and join a stand-alone Medicare Prescription Drug Plan) (January 1 to March 31 of each year). You can’t make adjustments at other times unless you’re moving out of your plan’s coverage area, want to join a 5-star plan in your area, or qualify for (or lose) Extra Help paying for prescription drug prices.

If you have any concerns or would want additional information about when your membership can be terminated, please contact us at:

Does Ohio CareSource work out of state?

You can seek medically necessary covered services from a physician not in our network if you get sick or harmed while traveling outside of our coverage region.

We recommend calling your primary care physician for advice before seeking urgent care, but it is not essential.
