Action Memo

  • On 07/25/17, an Action Memo was sent out to staff to inform them that certain active medical only cases in Family Health Plans and ACA Adult/Former Foster Care would be centrally transferred from the Family Community Resource Centers (FCRCs) to the new office Medical Management Unit (MMU), office 155, beginning 07/25/17, with a completion date of 08/02/17. 
  • The cases were not all able to be transferred at that time.  Therefore, the final phase of the medical only cases that are transferring from FCRC's 010 through 053/114, and 065/115 to the Medical Management Unit, will be completed in three waves beginning 10/03/17 through 10/06/17. 
  • It is important that the caseworkers do not attempt to transfer any active case from one office to another during 10/03/17 through 10/06/17.
  • Updated contact information for the two offices that comprise the Medical Management Unit (MMU) 155 is provided.

To streamline the maintenance of medical only cases and more effectively manage the redeterminations once the contract with Maximus ends, a new office, the Medical Management Unit (MMU) Office 155, was created out of the Hunter and Broadway offices. The Hunter and Broadway offices and their respective staff did not move, but will work together under the office name of the Medical Management Unit (MMU), Office 155.
