Managed care reporting
Minnesotans are entitled to clear information on how public dollars are spent on public health care programs, Medical Assistance (MA) and MinnesotaCare DHS-4932 (PDF). In an effort to provide this information, Gov. Mark Dayton directed the Department of Human Services (DHS) to establish these webpages, under a 2011 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.
These pages provide information on managed care plans' quality of care delivered, financials, contracting and related reports by state agencies. This information is collected by DHS—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 (HMOs) and county-based purchasing plans. DHS launched the site in April 2011.
