Title XIX/Title XXI Clients
(1)Title XIX /Title XXI clients are eligible for medical assistance through programs established by the Federal government and for which the State receives federal assistance. Most Title XIX/Title XXI clients are eligible for the Plus or Standard Benefit packages. See the General rules (chapter 410 division 120) for more information on eligibility, benefit package, and covered services. Most Title XIX/Title XXI clients are enrolled in a FCHP, a MHO and a DCO. Some Title XIX clients are Medicare Beneficiaries.
(2)The Division of Medical Assistance Programs (Division) contracts with Prepaid Health Plans (PHPs): Fully-Capitated Health Plans (FCHPs), Mental Health Organizations (MHOs), and Dental Care Organizations (DCOs), to provide certain medical, mental health and dental services on a prepaid basis.
