WellCare sues Iowa over terminated Medicaid contract

Share this:


WellCare,  a health insurer,  is suing the State of Iowa to contest its terminated contract to help manage the state’s Medicaid program.

A state official last Friday affirmed an administrative law judge’s recommendation to terminate WellCare’s contract over how the company disclosed information on fraud convictions of former executives. The judge also said the company had improper communication with state officials, reported Modern Healthcare.

WellCare,  for its part, asserts that it properly disclosed information and denied any improper communication with state officials.
