Dayton, Ohio-based nonprofit health insurer CareSource expanded its network Wednesday to include University of Louisville (Ky.) Physicians.
Under an agreement, CareSource members with marketplace and Medicare Advantage plans gained access to UofL Physicians' 900 providers in 78 specialties and subspecialties.
"Research shows us that when selecting insurance coverage, for almost 50 percent of Kentuckians, the ability to keep their own doctor or hospital is the most important decision factor," said CareSource SVP Scott Streator, citing recent market research conducted by CareSource. "By coming together with UofL Physicians, CareSource is pleased to offer Kentuckians increased access to affordable coverage that includes more than 100 office locations and dozens of health clinics throughout the state of Kentucky."
CareSource covers more than 135,000 Kentuckians through marketplace and Medicare Advantage plans.
