Missouri Medicaid expansion insurance plans will be managed care plans. A managed care plan is a type of health insurance having contracts with healthcare providers and medical facilities to provide care for members at a reduced cost. After your Medicaid application is approved, a managed care plan will be automatically assigned to you. If you would like to switch your plan, you have 90 days to do so. KC CARE will be in-network with all Missouri Medicaid managed care plans.
