News Briefs

Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield and Centene Corp.’s Managed Health Services (MHS) secured new four-year contracts to serve the Indiana state Medicaid program, Hoosier Care Connect. The new pacts, which start in April 2021, include the option for two one-year renewals, according to a press release from Centene. Anthem currently serves more than 500,000 Medicaid members across the state, while MHS serves more than 330,000 enrollees. View the releases at https://bwnews.pr/32hnW84 and https://prn.to/2YxNbSS.

After successful ballot initiatives in Missouri and Oklahoma, South Dakota voters may decide the fate of Medicaid expansion in that state. South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg (R) posted explanations for two petitions that will circulate in an effort to gain enough signatures for a ballot initiative in 2022. One of the measures would create a constitutional amendment (similar to Oklahoma’s approach) and the other would direct the state legislature to expand Medicaid. Expansion advocates have until November 2021 to collect enough signatures. Visit https://bit.ly/2EXnd42.
