Our State will implement the privatization of Medicaid effective 1/1/16. I have spoken to the NH administrator where my MIL resides but unfortunately little information has thus far been distributed to the nursing homes. Just yesterday (Friday) we received a packet and notice from Medicaid that MIL needs to select a Managed Care Organization. However, I have not been able to find out how the MCO will coordinate with Medicare, Med-gap and Medicare Part D plans. Nor did this information explain how this change will effect MIL's nursing home benefit.
Has anyone else been through a similar transition? I intend to place a call to my MIL's Medicaid caseworker first thing Monday morning but that might mean being on hold with customer service for quite some time.
