Medicaid Managed Care Handbook : 3 STAR Program

The principal objectives of the STAR Program are to emphasize early intervention and to promote improved access to quality care thereby significantly improving health outcomes for the target populations. The special focus of the STAR Program is on prenatal and well-child care.
In the STAR Program, each MCO contracts with PCPs, hospitals, and other providers to create a health-care delivery network. Eligible clients whose enrollment in the STAR Program is mandatory are required to select a health plan and a PCP. The client selects the PCP from the MCO provider listing.
