Insurer sets out Medicaid coping strategies for states

Wall Street Journal, April 15, 2010

UnitedHealth Group Inc. and its rivals in the managed-care industry are gearing up to go after one of the biggest new markets to be created by the new federal healthcare law: the roughly 16 million new people expected to be eligible for insurance coverage under state Medicaid programs, the Wall Street Journal reports. The Minnetonka, MN-based insurer is releasing a report describing a variety of managed-care strategies it says will help cash-strapped states solve budget problems and doctor shortages that hobble Medicaid.
