Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) last week said the state will not move forward with a plan to create a state-run, fee-for-service pharmacy benefit for Medicaid beneficiaries. Instead, Michigan’s contracted managed care plans will continue to design their own pharmacy benefits, while working on a single preferred drug list for the Medicaid program, according to the Michigan Association of Health Plans. As of January 2020, Michigan contracts with 11 MCOs to serve its managed Medicaid program, which currently enrolls 1,734,324 people, with WellCare Health Plans, Inc., Molina Healthcare and UnitedHealthcare leading the pack in enrollment.
