Reports: Medicaid MCOs Are ‘Dominant,’ Offer Quality Care

Two recent reports found that Medicaid managed care plans now enroll most Medicaid members, help keep costs and premiums low in the markets where they participate, and are competitive with commercial plans at the low end of the individual market in areas including network quality and benefit design.

One white paper was prepared by consultancy The Menges Group for America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) and released on June 23, and the other was authored by researchers at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and Urban Institute and released on June 17. The Menges Group-AHIP study focused primarily on measuring the scale of Medicaid MCO market share nationally, while the RWJF-Urban Institute report surveyed Medicaid stakeholders about MCO quality and effectiveness.
