Managed care reporting
Minnesotans need full disclosure and greater accountability of how public dollars are spent for health care services for people enrolled in Medical Assistance (MA) and MinnesotaCare (PDF). In an effort to provide this information, Gov. Mark Dayton directed the Department of Human Services (DHS) to establish this website under an executive order (PDF). It is a single source for all publicly available state information and reports on managed care plans under contract with DHS for publicly funded health care programs. News and updates about state managed care and reforms are also online.
About this website
Minnesota spent about $3.7 billion in state fiscal year 2012 purchasing health care through managed care plans for more than 700,000 people enrolled in public health care programs. These links provide information on managed care plan quality of care, financials, contracting and reports by state agencies. This information is collected by DHS as the purchaser of health care services for public program enrollees and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), the state agency that regulates managed care plans including health maintenance organizations and county-based purchasing plans. DHS launched the site in April 2011. The site is a work in progress and additional information will be posted.
This is information about health care services provided to people through managed care plans. It includes information about quality of care, efforts to improve services, incentives for providers to improve care and customer surveys.
This is information about payments made by DHS to managed care plans. It also includes annual financial reports from the plans with data on revenues, expenses and net income for all their health care business.
DHS contracts with each managed care plan for the various groups of people, such as families with children and seniors, covered by MA and MinnesotaCare are listed here. Model contacts and the contracting schedules are also included.
This includes information on how many people are enrolled in each plan and county. A series of maps show which plans are contracted to provide services to public program enrollees in each county for each program.
These are reports and audits related to managed care plans required by the Governor and/or Legislature.
DHS welcomes feedback and suggestions to make this a useful and user-friendly tool. Click on the “Report/Rate this page” link below to send comments.
