Medicaid Managed Care
New York’s Medicaid Managed Care program offers eligible New Yorkers a choice of Medicaid health plans. These plans focus on preventive health care and provide enrollees with a medical home for themselves and their families.
Managed care covers a wide array of benefits—including routine and emergency care, hospitalization, coverage of medicines, laboratory and X-ray services, and much more.
Over the two decades of New York’s Medicaid Managed Care program, it has been shown that these health plans are able to provide members with greater access to health care services—including greater numbers and varieties of providers—and to improve the overall quality of care.
