Update on Passport’s Contract

Passport logoAs we shared last week, the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) did not award Passport a Kentucky Medicaid managed care contract for the next contract period.

This week we have heard that legislators are expressing their concerns with the process. We appreciate that our elected leaders are giving the MCO contracts the thoughtfulness and consideration they deserve, and we’ll continue to follow the discussion closely as it unfolds.

In the meantime, we are continuing with the protest option available to us as part of the state’s procurement rules. We are also continuing to provide services to our Medicaid members throughout the existing contract term, expiring June 30, 2020, with no changes to member benefits during that time period.

We promise to keep you informed as this process unfolds and thank you for your continued support of Passport, our mission, and our members.
