Statewide Managed Care Contracts Awarded
The Missouri Office of Administration has announced the three vendors that will provide Medicaid managed care services beginning in May 2017.
In 2015, the General Assembly expanded managed care statewide for the Medicaid populations currently in the program, namely children, non-disabled adults, and pregnant women. The bid solicitation for statewide managed care services was released in April 2016. Plans submitted their proposals to the state in August.
The successful bidders are Missouri Care, operated by Wellcare; Home State, operated by Centene; and United Healthcare. These vendors will provide statewide services across four regions. The current contractors are Missouri Care, Home State, and Aetna.
