Benefit And Coverage Limitations
Plan First services are provided by enrolled DMAS providers. DMAS currently reimburses enrolled providers for limited family planning services provided to eligible Plan First members. The services are reimbursed on a fee-for-service basis and are provided under the same administrative structure as Medicaid state plan benefits except with limited family planning covered services. Eligibility should always be verified prior to rendering services to any Medicaid member so the provider is aware of which program the member is enrolled.
The following services are covered under Plan First only when provided in accordance with the limitations and requirements specified.
Plan First covers routine and periodic family planning office visits including:
- Annual physical exams for family planning purposes only, including exams for men and women
- Cervical cancer screening for women
- Laboratory services for family planning and Sexually Transmitted Infection testing
- Family planning education and counseling
- Sterilization procedures*
- Most Food and Drug Administration approved birth control methods provided by a clinician or obtained with a prescription** and
- Non-Emergency Transportation, if needed, which is limited to travel to and from a family planning service or pharmacy to obtain prescribed contraception. Please contact the Non-Emergency Medical Transportation Broker at 866-386-8331 to set up transportation or gas reimbursement to Plan First appointments.
