Medicare-Medicaid Coordinated Plan (MMCP)

The Medicare-Medicaid Coordinated Plan (MMCP) is for participants who are eligible and enrolled for both Medicare and Medicaid.

Since 2006, the Division of Medicaid has offered the MMCP to provide a coordinated health coverage plan that has the following features:

    • It allows you to receive your Medicare benefits from a private plan rather than from the traditional fee-for-service (FFS) program.
    • It allows Medicaid to pay your Medicare premium for you.
    • It may give you better access to providers.
    • It may cover more of the medical services you need.
    • It’s easy to use. Just show your Medicare Advantage Plan identification card for services.

Signing up for a Medicare Advantage Plan is voluntary.  Medicaid will continue to pay for services such as long-term care, personal care, and developmental disability services.

The MMCP covers all medically-necessary and preventive services covered under Medicare Part A, Part B and prescription drug coverage under Part D as well as additional services covered by Medicaid. The MMCP also covers additional services over and above original Medicare/Medicaid, such as:

    • Care Coordination
    • Dental
    • Vision
    • Call-in 24 Hour Nurseline
    • Fitness Benefit

The MMCP is available in the following counties:

Ada, Adams, Bannock, Benewah, Bingham, Blaine, Boise, Bonner, Bonneville, Boundary, Canyon, Caribou, Cassia, Clark, Elmore, Fremont, Gem, Gooding, Jefferson, Jerome, Kootenai, Latah, Madison, Minidoka, Nez Perce, Oneida, Owyhee, Payette, Power, Shoshone, Twin Falls, Valley, and Washington counties.
