CareSource is a nonprofit that began as a managed health care plan serving Medicaid members in Ohio. Today, it provides public health care programs including Medicaid, Medicare, and Marketplace. The company is headquartered in Dayton, Ohio. It is the largest Medicaid plan in Ohio and is second in the United States. In 2016, the company had more than 1.5 million members in four states.
CareSource was founded in Dayton, Ohio by a group of concerned community leaders with the goal of expanding health care for underserved populations. The plan was originally called the Dayton Area Health Plan (DAHP) which was incorporated by three hospital CEOs and located its first headquarters in the offices of the Dayton Hospital Association. Pamela Morris became the company’s first CEO, and has led the company since the beginning. DAHP began with a $500,000 grant from the state of Ohio to address a growing issue with the health care problems of low income citizens.
