Insurers file protest after shut out from Ohio Medicaid
Five of the six private health plans that did not win new statewide contracts with Ohio Medicaid filed formal protests by Monday's deadline. A common theme in the protest letters is that the state's scoring methods did not meet objectives in bidding documents that the overhaul of the Medicaid program should improve the coordination of care for 1.7 million recipients and improve health. Molina Healthcare Inc., of Long Beach, Calif., which had been Ohio Medicaid's second-largest plan, and Bethesda, Md.-based Coventry Health Care Inc., both objected to scores they submitted for Medicaid experience in other states that were omitted.
