RedFlagsSPRINGFIELD – The cancellation of a no-bid consulting contract inked by the Rauner administration in violation of state procurement law raises other red flags about the state’s Medicaid managed care program, Senator Andy Manar said today.

“In my mind, all this does is raise more questions about the Rauner administration’s handling of the overall $60-plus billion managed care contract. I think taxpayers are owed some explanations,” said Manar, a Bunker Hill Democrat and chairman of a Senate appropriations committee.

The state’s chief procurement officer on Tuesday voided the multi-million-dollar no-bid consulting contract between the Rauner administration and Chicago-based McKinsey & Co. The contract was for services related to the state’s Medicaid managed care program.

The process of contracting with insurance companies to be part of the state’s Medicaid managed care system has been cloaked in secrecy while costs ballooned without explanation. Manar said he and other state senators will be looking for answers from the administration during a Senate hearing at 11 a.m. Friday in Chicago.

The hearing will be streamed live at www.ilga.gov.
