Aetna Wins Contracts for Central, Eastern and Western Missouri Medicaid

Missouri HealthNet Division awarded a Medicaid managed care contract to Missouri Care, an Aetna health plan, in Central, Eastern and Western regions of Missouri.

For the past 11 years, Missouri Care has provided healthcare coverage in Central Missouri for MO HealthNet health programs that include MO HealthNet for Kids, MO HealthNet for Pregnant Women and MO HealthNet for Families.

Missouri Care currently has a network of more than 3,600 providers and 27 hospitals serving members in 28 mid-Missouri counties. Upon initiation of the new contract, to begin October 2009, Missouri Care will offer coverage in an additional 13 counties in the Eastern Region (including St. Louis) and 13 counties in the Western Region (including Kansas City) with an expanded provider network. The expanded network includes more than 2,620 providers, 23 hospitals and 53 clinics, which will include safety-net providers, such as Federally Qualified Rural Health Centers.

"We are excited to continue our long-term commitment to Missouri and expand our outreach to other areas of the state," said Pamela Johnson, executive director for Missouri Care an Aetna health plan.

"Our priority is to provide access to quality care for members and to help establish health care homes. We will continue to work with providers to implement programs that improve the quality of care for healthy outcomes," she said.

Aetna Medicaid owns and administers programs that serve approximately 1.3 million Medicaid members in 12 states.
