A Franklin County Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the Kasich administration on a court case filed by Amerigoup Ohio, Inc.  This clears the way for Ohio’s transition of it’s Medicaid program to managed care.  The top 5 bidders were awarded the contract to provide the health insurance benefits for the state’s Medicaid population.

Here is a link to more information from the Columbus Dispatch.

Here is a copy of the draft ruling.  While this document clearly states “DRAFT”, I’ve now seen this from several insurance companies as final rule making (here is one example).  Looking at section D2 on page 2, Ohio DOI now prohibits “any unsolicited contact with a medicare-eligible person” and goes on to give examples (email, telephone, door to door, etc.)  This appears to rather closely follow the CMS regulations with regard to unsolicited contact for Part D and Medicare advantage.  The prohibition appears to be specific to Medicare supplement and doesn’t appear to apply to other life and health products (long term care, life insurance and annuities).

Health Made Simple, an Under Age 65 Individual Health Product from New Era Life Insurance Company, is no longer accepting new business after June 15th, 2010.  The annual or lifetime limits, dependents to age 26, acceptance of children with pre-existing conditions and the Medical Loss Ratio seem to be the key mandates that are influencing the organization’s decision to no longer accept new business.  This will not affect current members of the plan, as they will be in grandfather status.  We expect New Era Life Insurance Company to administer the grandfathered plans with the same strong service commitment they have given their members since 1924.   A representative of the company has stated a new offering is in the works and will be released before the end of 2010.   Please contact Don Mazza or April Lippert, our under age 65 Health Division team, with further questions.
