The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) established the Medicaid Managed Care Rule to:

  • Promote quality of care
  • Strengthen efforts to reform the delivery of care to individuals covered under Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Plans (CHIP)
  • Strengthen program integrity by improving accountability and transparency

Enhance policies related to program integrity With the Medicaid Managed Care Rule, CMS updated the type of information managed care organizations are required to include in their care provider directories.

The best way for primary care providers (PCPs) to view and export the full member roster is using the CommunityCare tool on Link, which allows you to:  

  • Identify Medicaid recipients who need to have their Medicaid recertification completed and approved by the State Agency in order to remain eligible to receive Medicaid benefits
  • See a complete list of all members, or just members added in the last 30 days
  • Export the roster to Excel
  • View most Medicaid and Medicare SNP members’ plans of care and health assessments
  • Enter plan notes and view notes history (for some plans)
  • Obtain HEDIS information for your member population
  • Access information about members admitted to or discharged from an inpatient facility
  • Access information about members seen in an Emergency Department

For help using CommunityCare, please see our Quick Reference Guide. If you’re not familiar with Link, go to UHCprovider.com/link.

When you report a situation that could be considered fraud, you’re doing your part to help save money for the health care system and prevent personal loss for others. If you suspect another provider or member has committed fraud, waste or abuse, you have a responsibility and a right to report it. 

Taking action and making a report is an important first step. After your report is made, we will work to detect, correct and prevent fraud, waste, and abuse in the health care system.
