How will Medicaid recipients be auto-assigned an MCO?

If the recipient was in an MCO within the last 120 days, then they will go back into the previous MCO if there are slots available; if not, they will be randomly assigned. If the recipient is new to Medicaid or it has been more than 120 days since they were enrolled in an MCO, the recipient will be randomly assigned to an MCO. If the recipient is a newborn, the child will be assigned to their mother’s MCO.
