Eligibility and Enrollment

Beginning July 1, 2017, the Georgia Families® program will provide members a choice of four Care Management Organizations (CMOs): Amerigroup, CareSource, Peach State Health Benefit Plan and WellCare. Georgia Families® serves certain Medicaid and PeachCare for Kids® members, and Planning for Healthy Babies® enrollees. In the past, Georgia Families® Open Enrollment took place on members’ anniversary dates. This year, open enrollment for the new plan year was during the entire month of March, for all Georgia Families ® members. Members who did not choose a CMO were assigned to one of the following:

  • Amerigroup
  • CareSource
  • Peach State Health Plan 
  • WellCare 


 With a focus on health and wellness, the CMOs will provide members with health education, prevention programs and expanded access to plans and providers, giving them the tools needed to live healthier lives. Providers participating in Georgia Families will receive assistance from the CMOs on educating members about accessing care, referrals to specialists, member benefits and health and wellness education.

Collaboration between CMOs and DCH provides a more efficient delivery of health care services and better care for members, and accountability to taxpayers, while maintaining predictable and sustainable growth for DCH.
