The Minnesota Department of Human Services is contributing to a “Better Minnesota” by reforming the way it purchases health care. DHS will save taxpayers an estimated $600 million over the biennium by implementing competitive bidding for public managed care contracts in the metro, capping health plan profits at 1 percent, and making other managed care reforms.
The effort was recently highlighted by Gov. Mark Dayton for improving the value, efficiency and accountability of state government as part of the administration’s “Better Minnesota” initiative. For more information, see a post on the governor’s blog.
