CareNet is Keeping Up with the Times
In almost 12 years, more than 27,500 Lucas County residents have been members of Toledo/Lucas County CareNet at some point and have collectively received more than 530,000 medical services for free or on a sliding scale valued at $161 million based on Medicaid reimbursement rates.
Now that the Affordable Care Act is in full swing, CareNet's mission has changed slightly: To increase access to coordinated healthcare services for low income Lucas County residents. CareNet is still for residents of Lucas County, Ohio with income at, or below, 200% of the federal poverty guidelines who are not eligible for public or private healthcare coverage. CareNet provides coordinated healthcare services on a sliding fee scale or for free for active members. When enrolling in the program, individuals will need to provide a denial from Medicaid along with an exemption from the federal Marketplace. Moreover, we are now actively assisting individuals with the enrollment into the newly expanded Medicaid program as well as with insurance through the Marketplace.
CareNet will strive to assist individuals who are newly enrolled in Medicaid who are having difficulty accessing care and understanding their new benefits. If you or someone you know is in need of assistance, please reach out to us at 419-842-0800 or through the contact us section on this website.
CareNet continues to partner with Mercy, ProMedica, University of Toledo Medical Center, Neighborhood Health Association, the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department, the Academy of Medicine of Toledo and Lucas County, the City of Toledo, Lucas County Commissioners, United Way's First Call for Help, Islamic Medical Association, Dental Center of Northwest Ohio, private physicians, and many others.
Helping residents of Toledo & Lucas County live healthy, fulfilling lives.
