AUGUSTA (AP) — Gov. Paul LePage says it’s likely that not all the contracts for MaineCare transportation rides will be renewed.

The Republican governor said Thursday that he’s concerned about Connecticutbased vendor Coordinated Transportation Solutions, particularly the fact that the company didn’t obtain a performance bond.

The company has been criticized after thousands of MaineCare patients have complained of missed or delayed rides.

LePage said the administration is working with the company to continue to address the problems and is pleased with the progress that’s been made since August. The company has said it’s improving and is doing everything it can to ensure the program is successful.

But LePage said he doesn’t think that the state will renew all of the company’s six contracts. He says some will likely be renewed.
