Kentucky Preps Medicaid Rebid, Giving Anthem, Passport Another Shot at Retaining Business

The five insurers that were selected for new statewide contracts with Kentucky’s managed Medicaid program will have to rebid now that the state’s new Democratic governor, Andy Beshear, has nullified the awards made under Republican predecessor Matt Bevin.

The Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) in late November selected Aetna (owned by CVS Health Corp.), Humana-CareSource, Molina Healthcare, Inc., UnitedHealthcare and WellCare Health Plans, Inc. to serve approximately 1.3 million Medicaid and CHIP enrollees starting on July 1, 2020. New entrants Molina and UnitedHealthcare would have replaced Anthem, Inc. and Passport Health Plan.
