If you have Medicaid, you may have heard the term “Fee-For-Service.” Ever wonder what that means, and how it affects your health coverage?

Fee-For-Service simply refers to how healthcare professionals receive payment from Medicaid. Here’s a breakdown of how it works and how to use it for medical supplies.

What is Medicaid Fee-For-Service?

Fee-For-Service means that Medicaid pays doctors and healthcare professionals directly for each service they provide. Here’s a simple example:

  1. A Medicaid member visits the doctor for a check-up
  2. The doctor charges Medicaid a fee according to the state’s fee schedule
  3. Medicaid pays the doctor the fee for that check-up.

Although Fee-for-Service Medicaid pays providers directly, some Medicaid recipients may still have to pay small premiums or copays.

 

What Medical Benefits Does Fee-For-Service Cover?

You can receive any medical services that your Medicaid plan covers, so long as the service is medically necessary and prescribed by your doctor.

 

Can I Get Medical Supplies with Fee-For-Service?

Absolutely. You can get any medically necessary supplies covered by your Medicaid plan. Here are some of the products you may be eligible to receive:

  • Incontinence – Bladder control pads, adult briefs, and more.

Does Every State Medicaid Program Use Fee-For-Service?

No, not every state offers Fee-For-Service Medicaid. Some states also have Managed Care Plans, or a combination of Fee-For-Service and Managed Care plans. Managed Care means that the state contracts with private insurance companies to provide Medicaid health plans. To learn more, see what is Managed Care Medicaid.

To find out if you have a Managed Care Plan or Fee-For-Service, call the number on the back of your insurance card or refer to your plan’s benefit handbook.
