Statewide Medicaid Managed Care

In 2011, the Florida Legislature created a new program called Statewide Medicaid Managed Care (SMMC).  Certified Application Counselors can help individuals find out if they are eligible for SMMC or KidCare and, if they are, help them enroll.

SMMC has two parts:

  • The Managed Medical Assistance (MMA) Program
    Medicaid recipients who qualify and become enrolled in MMA will receive all health care services (other than long-term care) from a managed care plan.
  • The Long-term Care (LTC) Program
    Medicaid recipients who qualify and become enrolled in LTC will receive long-term care services from a Long-term Care managed care plan.

SMMC changes the way Medicaid health care services are provided. This means that Medicaid members will receive their health care services through a managed care plan.  Keep in mind that MMA plans cover services such as prescriptions, doctors’ visits and hospital stays.

Your Address
If you are currently enrolled in Medicaid, Medicaid is mailing important information to you regarding the MMA program to your home. To make sure the program has your current address:
