Datapoint: Minnesota Awards Managed Medicaid Contracts

Minnesota last week awarded managed Medicaid contracts that will serve about 600,000 of the state’s Medicaid beneficiaries across 80 counties, according to an Oct. 7 report in the Star Tribune. The nine winners were Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota, HealthPartners, Hennepin Health, ITASCA Medical Care, Medica, PrimeWest, South Country Health Alliance, UCare and UnitedHealthcare, all incumbents to the program. The new contracts, which are slated to begin in January, will focus on how MCOs can better address social determinants of health and serve rural beneficiaries. Nonprofit insurer UCare currently operates the largest Medicaid MCO in Minnesota, serving 412,622 members, or 36.6% of the market.
