Statewide Medicaid Managed Care (SMMC) – Managed Medical Assistance Program

Statewide Medicaid Managed Care (SMMC) is the program where most Medicaid recipients receive their Medicaid services.

There are two different parts that make up the SMMC program:

  • The Managed Medical Assistance (MMA) Program
  • The Long-term Care (LTC) Program

Medicaid recipients who qualify and become enrolled in MMA will receive all health care services (other than long-term care) from a managed care plan. Medicaid recipients who qualify and become enrolled in LTC will receive long-term care services from a Long-term Care managed care plan.
