CareSource, a nationally recognized nonprofit health plan, has enhanced benefits offered to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccinated members in the state of Indiana. Starting on June 1, 2021, CareSource is offering $20 for Medicaid members once they achieve full vaccination for COVID-19 in the form of a single-dose vaccine or the second dose of the two-dose vaccine. This enhanced benefit has been added to encourage complete vaccinations, curb the recent decline in Indiana’s vaccination rates, and ultimately contribute to the goal of herd immunity across the state.
The member reward is only the latest CareSource endeavor in their partnership with the state of Indiana to promote COVID-19 vaccination. CareSource has taken steps to educate members by contacting them directly once members are eligible to receive the vaccine and providing information on how to make an appointment. CareSource also offers members transportation to receive the vaccine if needed.
The reward will be automatically given to members on their OTC card once they achieve complete vaccination. The benefit is available now to all CareSource Medicaid members in Indiana ages 12 and up. When additional ages are eligible for vaccination, they will also become eligible for the reward. Members can reach out for information on this new benefit and rewards program by calling 1-844-607-2829 (TTY: 1-800-743-3333) Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET.
