Datapoint: West Virginia Selects Highmark as New Medicaid MCO

The West Virginia Department of Human Services last week selected Highmark Health to serve the state’s managed Medicaid program. The 4-year contract is slated to begin July 1. “We appreciate the trust the state has shown in us through this selection,” Jason Landers, West Virginia president of Highmark Health Options, said in a statement. “It’s an honor and privilege to serve all West Virginians, and a responsibility we don’t take lightly. We are excited to provide a Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance plan that will make the state proud.” West Virginia’s Medicaid program is also served by CVS Health’s Aetna, The Health Plan of West Virginia and Elevance Health’s UniCare. Of the state’s 513,000 Medicaid beneficiaries, 84% are enrolled in managed care plans.
