MA for People Receiving Services at the Center for Victims of Torture (MA-CVT) Health Care Delivery

Medical Assistance for people who receive services at the Center for Victims of Torture (MA-CVT) enrollees must follow guidelines for receiving medically necessary services. People who receive MA-CVT are excluded from managed care enrollment. MA-CVT medical services are provided via fee for service.

Fee for Service

Fee-for-service is a method of payment where the medical provider bills the Minnesota Health Care Programs (MHCP) for specific, individual services. Enrollees must use a medical provider enrolled with MHCP, except in special circumstances. A directory of enrolled providers is available online.

Covered Services

The MHCP Summary of Coverage, Cost Sharing, and Limits (DHS-3860) explains covered services.
