BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Gov. Bobby Jindal's administration has canceled a proposed $29 million contract for Medicaid program work, questioning the way state health agency officials handled it.
The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/XPESw7 ) that Louisiana will rebid the contract for a new system to determine who is eligible for Medicaid, which currently covers about 1.3 million state residents.
Although it wasn't in the state Department of Health and Hospitals' original request for proposals, DHH wanted the winning bidder — Deloitte LLP — to use a computer program called Microsoft Dynamics.
Former health secretary Bruce Greenstein ran a Microsoft Corp. health subsidiary before taking the state job. He resigned from DHH last month after a federal grand jury subpoenaed documents related to the award of a Medicaid claims processing contract to another of his former employers.
