Medicaid managed care expands
Modern Healthcare

States are responding to record-breaking enrollments in their Medicaid plans by expanding their use of private managed-care insurance plans to control costs, according to a survey of the programs by the Kaiser Family Foundation’s Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured. State use of comprehensive managed-care plans, in which private plans provide a network of providers for their Medicaid enrollees who agree to accept the patients and to ensure timely access to care, has grown to 66% of those beneficiaries, nationally, according to the survey.
