Managed Care

1. If individuals are to have choice of both Health Homes and MCOs in their area, are Health Homes required to be a network provider with all Managed Care Plans in their area?

There is no requirement that MCOs have ASA's with all Health Homes or vice versa, although this is strongly encouraged. The State is obligated to provide members with a choice of Health Home as practicable which is being accomplished by designating more than one Health Home in each region. In addition, members have a choice of care managers in their Health Home.
