MetroHealth cancels contract with Medicaid firm

Cleveland Plain Dealer, October 17, 2008
The MetroHealth System will cancel its contract with one of the only two Medicaid managed care companies available in Northeast Ohio, a move that could force more than 4,000 patients to get new doctors. In letters to patients, the hospital system said that as of Nov. 1, MetroHealth, its community clinics and all of its doctors would no longer accept WellCare of Ohio health coverage.
