The contracts will affect the state's current behavioral health carve-out. The selected MCOs would receive a capitated rate and would be at full risk for providing all Medicaid physical health, behavioral health, and pharmacy services for the estimated 229,219 Medicaid beneficiaries in Nebraska. Proposals are due by December 22, 2015. The contracts are slated to go live on January 1 . . .
