Section 22-6-155

Terms of contracts; cost evaluations.

An initial contract between the Medicaid Agency and a regional care organization shall be for three years, with the option for the Medicaid Agency to renew the contract for not more than two additional one-year periods. The Medicaid Agency shall obtain provider input and an independent evaluation of the cost savings, patient outcomes, and quality of care provided by each regional care organization, and obtain the results of each regional care organization's evaluation in time to use the findings to decide whether to enter into another multi-year contract with the regional care organization or change the Medicaid region's care-delivery system.
