Starting July 1, 2021, MetroPlusHealth will cover Article 29-I Voluntary Foster Care Agency (VFCA) Health Facility services for children and youths under age 21 in foster care and other special populations, as indicated.
Also starting July 1, 2021, some children and youth must join a Medicaid managed care plan, including:

Some children and youth placed in foster care cannot join a Medicaid managed care plan. They will keep getting services through regular Medicaid.
