Legal challenges continue to mount over the state’s Medicaid managed-care program. Lighthouse Health Plan filed a petition in state administrative court last week challenging state decisions that it says will lead to the automatic assignment of Medicaid patients in Northwest Florida to a competitor, Humana. 

Magellan Health intends to protest an Agency for Health Care Administration decision to shut the health plan out of the state’s Medicaid managed-care market.
