Dayton-based CareSource has been licensed to expand their services in Arkansas. They'll be working on a Medicaid program that serves people with complex behavioral, developmental and intellectual disabilities.

The insurance company will now be serving patients in the Provider-Led Arkansas Shared Savings Entity or (PASSE) Program. PASSE is designed to track, monitor and improve the healthcare outcomes of complex low-income patients.

CareSource says they will be opening a new office in Little Rock, in order to make their services more accessible. They currently serve about 2 million people across five states, and the company employs about 4,500 people.
