Medicaid HMO Expansion: Are You Ready?

On March 12, Texas will complete statewide expansion of the Medicaid HMO model by requiring most patients living in rural and South Texas counties to obtain their health care services from physicians and providers participating in one of the Medicaid HMO networks. Patients were sent English and Spanish versions of enrollment packets on Dec. 15. Patients must select an HMO and a primary care physician by Feb. 12 or be assigned to an HMO and/or primary care provider (PCP) by the state's enrollment broker, Maximus. Patients who are assigned to a plan and/or PCP can subsequently change it.
