Managed Medicaid

Managed Medicaid is a health delivery system that was developed to manage cost, utilization, and quality. Medicaid managed care provides for the delivery of Medicaid health benefits and additional services. This happens through contracted arrangements between state Medicaid agencies and managed care organizations (MCOs) that accept a set per-member, per-month payment for these services. The ultimate goal of Managed Medicaid is to see improvements in health plan performance and health care quality.
