It is never too early to start to understand the Medicaid planning process. Depending on the state where you live, Medicaid planning is established and administered according to the the type, amount, duration, and scope of services within a broad set of federal guidelines. States are federally required to cover certain “mandatory benefits,” and can choose to provide other “optional benefits” through the Medicaid program.
Some of the Madatory Medicaid Benefits Include:
- Certified Pediatric and Family Nurse Practitioner Services
- Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic, and Treatment Services
- Family Planning Services
- Federally qualified Health Center Services
