In a Medicaid managed care system, Medicaid recipients are provided health care coverage from a company under contract with the state.  Managed care companies, or MCOs agree to provide Medicaid benefits to recipients in exchange for a monthly payment from the state.  The State of New Hampshire has contracted with three MCOs  to provide health care coverage for most New Hampshire Medicaid recipients.
