Judge orders nearly 100 pages from MCNA’s Idaho Medicaid dental bid disclosed

An Idaho 4th District judge has ordered a Florida dental services contractor to disclose nearly 100 pages of material from its successful bid for an Idaho Medicaid contract that the company had claimed was exempt from public disclosure as trade secrets.

The order came in a lawsuit filed by Blue Cross, which had the state contract but lost out to Florida-based MCNA Dental, which has been winning similar contracts around the country.

Blue Cross contended that the Florida firm claimed much of its bid consisted of trade secrets – preventing Blue Cross from reviewing it to decide whether to challenge the bid award.
