What is Medicaid Managed Care?

Managed Care, sometimes called Managed Medicaid, means that a state has contracted with a private insurance company to provide Medicaid benefits on behalf of the state. The state pays the insurance company a set amount each month, and in return, the company provides their Medicaid members with healthcare services.


What Medical Benefits Does Managed Care Cover?

Managed Care plans cover all of the Medicaid benefits required by the federal government. Some Managed Care plans may also provide extra benefits. Since Managed Care plans are different for each state, benefits may vary. There may also be differences in the health provider networks available.

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

Does Every State Medicaid Program Have Managed Care Plans?

No, not every state offers Managed Care plans. Some states also use Fee-For Service, which means that the state itself provides healthcare benefits and pays for each individual members’ services directly. To learn more, see What Is Fee-For-Service 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.
