Kaiser Foundation Health Plan Inc., of Los Angeles, inked the only Medicare managed care contract in November, while four plans expanded service areas: Health First, Humana and Evercare (Massachusetts and Georgia). As of Dec. 1 — just two months into the fiscal year — HCFA had reimbursed all prepaid Medicare managed care plans more than $7.4 billion.... The Office of Civil Rights is considering antidiscrimination rules for Medicaid managed care organizations. The fear is that plans, wittingly or unwittingly, may discriminate against minorities by refusing to provide necessary care. However, almost all states have anti-discrimination Medicaid provisions.
