About Waiver Services

MyCare Ohio enrollees who used to get waiver services through PASSPORT, Choices, Assisted Living, Ohio Home Care and Transitions II Carve-Out waivers are now covered in the new MyCare Ohio waiver. If you are receiving waiver services, you are automatically enrolled in the MyCare Ohio waiver.

As a Molina Dual Options MyCare Ohio member,your services are coordinated and approved by your Care Manager. Waiver service planning is still based on your specific medical needs. 

If you are new to the plan, you can stay with your current providers on the MyCare Ohio waiver for a time. This is called the transition period. The transition period is between 90 and 365 days depending on the service. It allows members to keep getting services from their current providers. 

Until the transition period is over, Molina Dual Options MyCare Ohio will keep your services and providers the same. Changes will not occur unless:

  • There is a significant change in your condition, living arrangement or caregiver status; or
  • You ask to direct your own services through the Choices Waiver Program


After the transition period, your provider can keep serving you if he or she joins our provider network.
