Statewide Medicaid Managed Care (SMMC) - Long-term Care Program

In 2011, the Florida Legislature created a new program called the Statewide Medicaid Managed Care (SMMC) program.

There are two different programs that make up the Statewide Medicaid Managed Care:
  • The Long-term Care (LTC) Managed Care Program
  • The Managed Medical Assistance (MMA) Program

Medicaid recipients who qualify and become enrolled in the Statewide Medicaid Managed Care – Long-term Care program will receive long-term care services from a long-term care managed care plan. Medicaid recipients who qualify and become enrolled in the Statewide Medicaid Managed Care - Managed Medical Assistance program will receive all health care services other than long-term care from a managed care plan.
