Will Medicaid Managed Care Plans (MMCP) need to approve Treatment Plans for Children and Family Treatment and Support Services?

MMCPs do need to approve scope, frequency and duration, but the goal is not to have plans ‘over manage’.  MMCPs are approving services based on their review of the documentation submitted by the provider to substantiate medical necessity. This may include the treatment plan.
