VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., July 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AMERIGROUP Corporation (NYSE: AGP) announced today that, effective July 1, 2008, AMERIGROUP Tennessee renewed its contract with the State of Tennessee through June 30, 2009.

The renewal includes a rate increase for the period April 1, 2008 through June 30, 2008, as well as a rate increase for the period July 1, 2008 through June 30, 2009.
