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