WV set to enter no-bid health insurer contracts



West Virginia officials are preparing to enter into nearly $600 million worth of no-bid contracts with three health care insurance companies.

It's a decision by the state Department of Health and Human Resources that is now under fire. Critics say the arrangement could cost the state millions of dollars and that the plan may be illegal.

"When is the last time the state of West Virginia would allow a $600 million contract and not bid it?" said Delegate Ron Walters, R-Kanawha.

Walters urged House leaders to call for a special investigation or audit.
