Approximately two-thirds of the Agency’s recipients, or about 650,000 Alabama citizens, will receive their care via RCOs.
Covered populations include aged, blind and disabled recipients, pregnant women and children under age 19 (formerly known as SOBRA recipients),
and parent/caretaker relatives (formerly known as Medicaid for Low Income Families). Foster children, people who have both Medicare and Medicaid,
and those recipients who reside in a nursing facility or receive long-term care services and supports such as HCBS waiver services, will continue
to receive care via the current fee-for-service system. A list of Medicaid recipients who will be required to participate in RCOs is on the Agency's website.
