Molina Healthcare recently launched a lawsuit against the state after Missouri dropped the company as a Medicaid insurance provider.
Molina is now looking to stop all patient registration and start the re-bidding process on the 1.1 billion dollars of contracts.
The State says a reduced number of Medicaid insurance companies will save up to $56 million dollars over the next three years.
It was released that Molina scored last out of all Medicaid insurance bids in 2012.
Molina scored lowest in the categories of primary and specialty care, and behavioral health.
In September of 2011, Molina was slapped with a sanction by the Missouri Department of Social Services for a failure to provide proper case management to behavioral health patients.
Molina declined to comment on the matter.
