President & CEO,
Pam Morris has more than 40 years’ experience in managed health care and the public sector. As an entrepreneurial architect, she pioneered Ohio’s first mandatory Medicaid managed care program and built Dayton Area Health Plan, funded with a half-million dollar grant from the State of Ohio and 38 employees (1989), to present-day CareSource, boasting a 2016 revenue of $7.2 billion and 3,100 employees.
Nearly 30 years later, CareSource is one of the nation’s largest Medicaid Managed Care plans, serving more than 1.6 million members. The company was recently the only non-incumbent health plan selected to serve Medicaid members in both Indiana and Georgia, and will soon have members in five states. The plan has reinvested more than $13 million back into the communities it serves through the CareSource Foundation. As President and CEO of CareSource, Pam has been recognized for her leadership and commitment to improving the health and well-being of the members CareSource serves. She was named the 2007 National Entrepreneur of the Year, Healthcare Services by Ernst & Young.
