HARTFORD, Conn. – CareCentrix is expanding its services to managed Medicaid health plans and has named Scott Markovich to serve as its general manager of Medicaid. As Medicaid plans focus on tightening budgets, CareCentrix says it improves care coordination and reduces costs through value-based contracts and guaranteed savings for post-acute and home services. “Managed Medicaid is a critical part of the U.S. health care system, providing millions of vulnerable Americans with access to high-quality care,” said CareCentrix CEO John Driscoll. “As states tighten budgets—while membership grows—payers can help states find new ways to lower costs and improve outcomes.” Prior to joining CareCentrix, Markovich was the regional vice president for the Midwest Region and vice president of business development at Aetna Medicaid. He also served as president of Magellan Complete Care, where he led the creation of the nation’s first Medicaid Health Plan for individuals with serious mental illness.
