CareSource, an Ohio-based nonprofit health plan has been selected by AMVETS (American Veterans) the National congressionally chartered Veterans organization to develop a health care program using their managed care model. CareSource coordinates health care access for underserved populations and has recently expanded its focus to include veterans who face health care access issues. This program will allow Veterans the choice of access to health care outside of the (VA) system.

AMVETS recently added health care intervention and advocacy services for underserved veterans to its portfolio of programs. The supportive services coincide with the organization's highly anticipated launch of the HEAL Program in March 2018. The HEAL program is an initiative designed to address access to health care issues.
