FSSA has added a fourth Managed Care Entity (MCE) as an option for HHW and HIP members. Effective January 1, 2017, the MCE options are now Anthem, CareSource, MDwise, and MHS.
CareSource is the new MCE being offered and they began serving HHW members January 1, 2017 and HIP members on February 1, 2017. Members may choose CareSource as their MCE at time of application or at the annual re-determination period.
Providers who would like to participate in the HHW and HIP MCE networks must be enrolled with the IHCP and contracted with one or more of the MCEs. Providers should contact the MCEs directly for contracting instructions.
Beginning on January 1, 2017, MCE networks for HHW include dental and pharmacy services.
