Magellan Health said in a regulatory filing that on June 17, the company received a notice of intent to extend the Iowa Medicaid Contract through December 31, to coincide with the start date of new Iowa High Quality Healthcare Initiative.

The Agency intends to contract on a statewide basis with two to four managed care plan bidders with a demonstrated capacity to coordinate care and provide a full range of managed care services and quality outcomes for the state’s entire Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program populations. The program will enroll the majority of the Iowa Medicaid and CHIP populations and will also provide services for individuals qualifying for Iowa Department of Public Health funded substance abuse services. The anticipated start of the contract is January 1, 2016 for an initial period of three years and the ability for the Agency to extend the contract for two additional two year terms. The RFP includes the services provided by the company’s current Iowa Contracts. The company has submitted a bid on this RFP. There can be no assurance that the company will be awarded a contract pursuant to the RFP, or that the terms of any contract awarded pursuant to the RFP will be similar to the current Iowa Contracts.
