OPEN MINDS Releases Updated Suite Of Kentucky Medicaid Market Intelligence Resources

/EIN News/ -- Gettysburg, Pa, July 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OPEN MINDS has released an updated suite of Medicaid market intelligence resources on the state of Kentucky. The resources include an analysis of the Kentucky’s Medicaid system, Medicaid managed care vendor contracts, and additional state-specific information.

Kentucky contracts with five health plans to deliver physical health and behavioral health benefits for most populations, including families and children, Medicaid expansion adults, and aged and disabled adults.

Contracts for the five health plans are available for download:

The requirements were challenged in court, and the court required CMS to review the waiver. CMS re-approved the waiver on November 20, 2018, with an effective date of April 2019.
