Why are changes being made to
Florida’s Medicaid program?
•
Because of the Statewide Medicaid Managed
Care (SMMC) program, the Agency is changing
how a majority of individuals receive most health
care services from Florida Medicaid.
Long-term Care program
Statewide Medicaid
Managed Care
program
(implementation Aug. 2013 –
March 2014)
Managed Medical Assistance
program
(implementation May 2014 –
August 2014)
2
The SMMC program does not/is not:
• The program does not limit medically
necessary services.
• The program is not linked to changes in the
Medicare program and does not change
Medicare benefits or choices.
• The program is not linked to National Health
Care Reform, or the Affordable Care Act
passed by the U.S. Congress.
– It does not contain mandates for individuals to purchase insurance.
– It does not contain mandates for employers to purchase insurance.
– It does not expand Medicaid coverage or cost the state or federal
government any additional money.
3
Discontinued Programs
• Once the MMA program is implemented, some
programs that were previously part of the
Medicaid program will be discontinued. This
includes the following programs:
– MediPass
– Prepaid Mental Health Program (PMHP)
– Prepaid Dental Health Plan (PDHP)
4
Who WILL NOT participate?
• The following groups are excluded from
program enrollment:
– Individuals eligible for emergency services only due to immigration
status;
– Family planning waiver eligible;
– Individuals eligible as women with breast or cervical cancer; and
– Children receiving services in a prescribed pediatric extended care
facility.
– Individuals eligible and enrolled in the Medically Needy program
with a Share of Cost.
• Note: The Agency has applied to federal CMS for permission to
enroll this population in managed care. Until approval is granted,
this population will be served in fee for service.
5
Who MAY participate?
• The following individuals may choose to
enroll in program:
– Individuals who have other creditable health care coverage, excluding
Medicare;

in an MMA plan when the program begins in their
region in 2014.

Specialty Plan Assignment
• The Agency is required by Florida law to
automatically enroll Medicaid recipients into a
managed care plan if they do not voluntarily choose
a plan.
• When a specialty plan is available to serve a specific
condition or diagnosis of a recipient, the Agency is
required to assign the recipient to that plan.
• The Agency employs a hierarchy for assignment to
specialty plans in those instances where a recipient
qualifies for enrollment into more than one specialty
plan.
33
If a recipient qualifies for enrollment in more than one of the available specialty
plan types, and does not make a voluntary plan choice, they will be assigned to
the plan for which they qualify that appears highest in the chart below:
Child Welfare
Children’s Medical Services
Network
HIV/AIDS
Serious Mental Illness
Dual Eligibles with Chronic
Conditions
34
Who can Enroll in a Specialty Plan?
• Each specialty plan is designed to serve a unique
population.
• Each population must have defined specified criteria based
on age, medical condition, or diagnosis, per Florida law.
• A recipient must meet the specified criteria in order to
enroll in a specific specialty plan.
• For the most part, the Agency will identify recipients who
are eligible to enroll in a specialty plan. However, specialty
plans may develop and implement policies and procedures
(subject to Agency approval) to screen recipients meeting
the specialty plan eligibility criteria and who have not been
identified by the Agency.

Continuity of Care During the Transition
to MMA
• Heath care providers should not cancel appointments
with current patients. MMA plans must honor any
ongoing treatment, for up to 60 days after MMA starts in
each Region, that was authorized prior to the recipient’s
enrollment into the plan.
• Providers will be paid. Providers should continue
providing any services that were previously authorized,
regardless of whether the provider is participating in the
plan’s network. Plans must pay for previously authorized
services for up to 60 days after MMA starts in each Region,
and must pay providers at the rate previously received for
up to 30 days.
• Prescriptions will be honored. Plans must allow
recipients to continue to receive their prescriptions through
their current provider, for up to 60 days after MMA starts in
each Region, until their prescriptions can be transferred to
a provider in the plan’s network.
