Medica is poised to return to a big contract within the state’s public medical health insurance applications greater than two years after the Minnetonka-based HMO dropped the enterprise.

In 2018, the HMOs at Eagan-based Blue Cross and Blue Defend of Minnesota, Bloomington-based HealthPartners and Minneapolis-based UCare have been the most important managed care organizations in PMAP and MinnesotaCare. A Star Tribune evaluation of state filings exhibits the HMOs for 2018 collectively reported about $69.2 million in web revenue on about $Four billion in income from the applications.

After saying in late 2016 that it will drop the massive state contract, Medica filed a lawsuit in opposition to DHS the next spring, alleging that competing well being plans have been provided higher offers to function HMOs within the public applications. A choose later tossed the lawsuit.

DHS says the brand new contract will specify which HMOs will handle the care of about 364,00Zero individuals within the PMAP and MinnesotaCare applications. A county-based buying group known as PrimeWest can be a finalist to handle care within the medical health insurance applications.
