Maryland Medicaid Expansion
Medicaid Expansion:
Maryland is fully participating in the Medicaid Expansion under provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
 
For additional background on the State’s policy decisions regarding the Medicaid Expansion option, see: Background.
 
 
Medicaid in Maryland:
The MD Department of Health and Mental Hygiene administers the state’s Medicaid program, called Maryland Medical Assistance Program.
Information about Medicaid can be found at: https://mmcp.dhmh.maryland.gov/SitePages/Home.aspx.
 
Provider Participation:
Providers must enroll in the Medicaid fee-for-service program to receive payments for covered services. Information about enrolling in the Medicaid fee-for-service program can be found at: https://mmcp.dhmh.maryland.gov/SitePages/Home.aspx.
The MD Medicaid website provides information about services covered by fee-for-service payments and payment amounts: https://mmcp.dhmh.maryland.gov/SitePages/Home.aspx.
In order to retain access to all Medicaid patients in the state, providers must also connect to the managed care plans individually.

 
Medicaid Managed Care:
Some Medical Assistance Program beneficiaries are enrolled in managed care plans. Basic information about the programs, called HealthChoice, can be found at: https://mmcp.dhmh.maryland.gov/healthchoice/SitePages/Home.aspx.
Some managed care plans cover individual Maryland counties and independent cities. The Medicaid website has jurisdictional information: https://mmcp.dhmh.maryland.gov/SitePages/Home.aspx.

Medical Assistance Program Beneficiaries Participating in Managed Care:
Managed care plans participating in HealthChoice offer detailed information about covered benefits for individuals enrolling in their plans. This information is available on the managed care websites shown below.
