Magellan says Iowa contracts generated six month sales of $261.9M Magellan Health said last night that it provides behavioral healthcare management and other related services pursuant to contracts with the State of Iowa. The company currently has two contracts: the Iowa Medicaid Contract and Iowa Medicaid Integrated Health Home Provider Agreement. On February 16, the Iowa Department of Human Services released the Iowa High Quality Healthcare Initiative Request for Proposal. The agency originally stated that it intended to contract on a statewide basis with two to four successful bidders with a demonstrated capacity to coordinate care and provide quality outcomes for the 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. Magellan was notified yesterday that it was not selected as a winning bidder by the Agency for the Iowa High Quality Healthcare Initiative Request for Proposal, it disclosed in the regulatory filing. The company's existing contracts in Iowa are expected to terminate December 31, 2015 to coincide with the start date of the new initiative. Such contracts generated net revenues of $261.9M for the six months ended June 30, it stated.
