CMS to Kentucky: Managed Care Plan Approved

The Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) has granted approval for Kentucky's proposed plan to move Medicaid to managed care.

Under the proposed plan, the commonwealth will transfer 560,000 Medicaid recipients into one of three new managed care providers, leaving the 170,000 Passport enrollees with their current managed care coverage.

Kentucky's Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) plans to move all enrollees by October 1, with the goal of saving money and improving care.
