Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Losing Medicaid Bidders File Protest
Five of the six managed care organizations that lost bids for state Medicaid contracts have filed protests with Ohio officials.
This month, Ohio chose the contract winners that will provide health care services for more than 1.5 million poor and disabled people.
Companies that lost out on the billions of dollars in work say the Department of Job and Family Services made errors in awarding the contracts. Several companies allege scoring on bid applications was miscalculated.
A department spokesman said the protests would be reviewed but wouldn’t comment further.
Protests are common and don’t typically affect contract awards, though a financial services company found the Ohio scoring results to be especially unusual. London-based Barclays conducted the analysis on behalf of some bidders.
