Kentucky, Louisiana Medicaid Rebids Have Silver Linings

An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that Jeff Myers is the former CEO of WellCare Health Plans, Inc. Myers was never WellCare’s CEO, but worked closely with WellCare’s leaders when Myers was CEO of Medicaid Health Plans of America (MHPA). WellCare is a member of MHPA. This version has been corrected.

On Jan. 21, Paula Tregre, Louisiana’s head of procurement, canceled the state’s newest Medicaid contract awards — but not for the reasons you might think. Meanwhile, Kentucky is working through its own bidding controversy after the state’s new governor called off Medicaid pacts awarded in December.
