Coventry Health Care of Nebraska will be the new health plan administrator for Nebraska's Comprehensive Health Insurance Pool.
The state program is designed to provide health insurance for Nebraskans who can't get affordable coverage without restrictions because of medical problems.
Coventry Health Care of Nebraska is a wholly owned subsidiary of Coventry Health Care Inc., a national managed-care company.
The Health Insurance Pool board of directors selected Coventry as health plan administrator at a meeting last week.
Coventry will administer benefits for the program starting April 1. The benefits currently are administered by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska.
