Dentaquest sues in Arkansas to toss Medicaid pick

A Boston company has asked a judge to overturn an Arkansas official’s decision that resulted in the firm losing a bid for a multimillion-dollar contract to manage dental benefits for Medicaid recipients.

In a lawsuit filed Monday in Pulaski County Circuit Court, DentaQuest contends that state Procurement Director Edward Armstrong erred in February when he disqualified the company for failing to disclose a federal lawsuit that had been filed against it in Massachusetts.

Armstrong also disqualified Irvine, Calif.-based Liberty Dental for similar omissions. His ruling left Sherwood-based Delta Dental and Fort Lauderdale-based Managed Care of North America as the winning bidders for the Arkansas contracts.
