Overview 

Medicaid is one of the largest government health programs in the United States, serving nearly 75 million low-income individuals as of 2018. The program is structured as a federal/state partnership, with states administering the program within a federal framework and states and the federal government sharing the costs. States have the flexibility to determine the system for administering payments to providers of services to Medicaid enrollees using one of two models: fee-for-service (FFS) or Medicaid managed care (MMC).
