Modern Healthcare - - REGIONAL NEWS - —Kristen Schorsch, Crain’s Chicago Busi­ness

Aetna, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illi­nois and Molina Health­care were among the in­sur­ers who last week sub­mit­ted bids for con­tracts to par­tic­i­pate in Illi­nois Gov. Bruce Rauner’s over­hauled Med­i­caid man­aged-care pro­gram.

In­sur­ers that now have man­aged-care con­tracts with the state, but did not sub­mit bids, in­clude FHN and its sub­sidiary Com­mu­nity Care Al­liance of Illi­nois, as well as na­tional in­sur­ers Cigna Corp. and Hu­mana.

The health plans are vy­ing for a piece of an es­ti­mated $9 bil­lion in con­tracts a year, over four years. The Rauner ad­min­is­tra­tion plans to award up to seven bids.
