The Texas Health and Human Services Commission last week awarded three-year contracts for the state’s STAR+PLUS Medicaid program, which combines managed Medicaid with long-term services and supports. Most incumbents were able to keep their spots, save Cigna Corp., which was not selected, and Molina Healthcare, which lost several of its service areas. Cigna currently serves 48,498 STAR+PLUS members to Molina’s 85,308. Overall, the STAR+PLUS program serves 524,032 members, 13.6% of the managed Medicaid population in Texas.
