Datapoint: Paramount Loses Ohio Medicaid Battle
An Ohio judge on Nov. 9 ruled against Paramount Advantage in a contract dispute with the Ohio Department of Medicaid. Earlier this year, the state declined to renew Paramount’s contract in the state’s upcoming Medicaid managed care transformation. Paramount currently serves 243,382 Medicaid lives in Ohio, but those members will be transitioned to new MCOs in July 2022. More than 90% of Ohio’s 2.9 million Medicaid lives are served by a managed care plan.
