The Executive Council wants a month to review three five-year contracts with managed care companies to administer the state’s Medicaid program.

The three contracts totaling almost $1 billion for fiscal year 2020 were tabled by the council at its meeting on Wednesday. The council scheduled a hearing to question company representatives on March 11 at 1 p.m. in the Executive Council Chambers in the State House.

Currently two managed care organizations administer the program providing health coverage for about 180,000 users, including 50,000 people covered under the Medicaid expansion program of the Affordable Care Act.
