More managed care groups serving Louisville area

Associated Press Published: October 4, 2012

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — The state has signed contracts with four managed care organizations to provide health services for some 175,000 Medicaid recipients in Louisville and 15 surrounding counties.

The initial contracts with Coventry Cares, Humana, Passport and Wellcare of Kentucky will be for 18 months and will take effect Jan. 1.

Health and Family Services Secretary Audrey Tayse Haynes announced the new contracts on Thursday.

The Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services advised the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services earlier this year that it could no longer operate with a single managed care provider. Passport had served the entire region since 1997.

Under the new contracts, the managed care groups also will be responsible for behavioral health services.
