Molina Health­care will buy the Med­i­caid as­sets of one of Henry Ford Health Sys­tem’s health plans.

Modern Healthcare - - LATE NEWS -

The news comes shortly af­ter the state de­nied Henry Ford’s ap­peal of new Med­i­caid con­tracts. Henry Ford planned to di­vest most of its HAP Mid­west Health Plan if the state re­fused to change course on its new man­aged-care con­tracts. Henry Ford’s HAP Mid­west cov­ers 88,000 Med­i­caid pa­tients in two pop­u­lous re­gions around Detroit, where Henry Ford is based. But HAP Mid­west did not re­tain the busi­ness when the state re­leased new con­tracts in Oc­to­ber. Molina, how­ever, won con­tracts for those two re­gions, among oth­ers. Molina cov­ers about 340,000 Michi­gan Med­i­caid pa­tients.
