Pennsylvania Prepares for Changes to the HealthChoices Medicaid Organizations

The Pennsylvnia Department of Human Services (DHS) leadership announced in mid-January that they intend to implement changes to the managed care plans operating the physical health (PH) HealthChoices program effective July 1, 2022. Approximately 460,000 Medicaid consumers will be required to choose a new managed care plan or be auto-assigned into one. The remaining 2.3 million consumers in the HealthChoices program will have the option to choose a new managed care plan and will have new plan options available. This will affect dental coverage and dental providers as well.
