The Arc of Florida Releases Fact Sheets on Statewide Medicaid Managed Care and Managed Medical Assistance Program Problems

Families of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) have begun to receive letters from the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) regarding two Medicaid Managed Care programs which may impact their services. They are the Managed Medical Assistance and Statewide Medicaid Managed Care programs.

Some of the letters were sent in error. Other families receiving them may get placed into programs they do not want to be in. The Arc of Florida researched the situation and developed a fact sheet to help guide families receiving services from the Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD) through the process.
