WellCare leaving Florida's controversial Medicaid Reform program

Miami Herald, February 5, 2009

Florida's largest Medicaid insurer has announced it will leave the state's controversial Medicaid Reform program because government-set reimbursement rates are too low. WellCare of Florida's 78,000 Medicaid Reform clients will still receive state-paid health services but through another health plan, according to the Agency for Health Care Administration.
