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

If you are experiencing problems as a medical provider with the Managed Care plans or companies operating in the state, or if your patients are experiencing problems with the Managed Care plans or companies in the state, including trouble with access to medications, access to preferred providers, navigating the appeals process, excessive costs, or possible discriminatory policies, or any other problems related to the Affordable Care Act, please report these problems to the state Medicaid Office:
Additionally, if you are experiencing these or other problems, please report these problems to AAHIVM, so that we may track issues affecting our members, and seek additional policies remedies.
