Posted On: Oct. 10, 2022 9:50 AM CST

Blue Shield of California filed a lawsuit alleging that California violated public records laws by not releasing documents related to the state's Medicaid contract awards, Becker’s Payer Issues reports. Blue Shield of California lost Medi-Cal contracts in all 13 counties in which it bid, the report says. Since the state's Aug. 25 decision, Blue Shield has filed an appeal with California's Health Care Services department, accusing rivals Anthem Blue Cross, Molina Healthcare Inc. and Health Net LLC of failing to disclose penalties against them.
