Molina is fortifying its position in the New York marketplace with the Affinity Health Plan buyout

The Affinity Health acquisition complements a pair of other deals Molina has executed in the last two years. Earlier in 2020, it purchased Magellan Complete Care for $820 million (150,000 members, some of which are enrolled in the New York Senior Whole Health plan) and in 2019 it acquired portions of YourCare Health Plan, Inc. (a non-profit division of New York-based Monroe Plan for Medical Care) which added 46,000 Medicaid members in seven New York counties to Molina’s business.

Molina’s acquisitions widen its national footprint

Founded in 1980 and based in Long Beach, California, Molina Healthcare (NASDAQ: MOH) generates over $16 billion annually. They are a well-respected and growing mid-sized managed care organization (MCO) primarily focused on government-subsidized health plans including Medicaid coverage for low-income members and Medicare benefits for seniors and other qualified individuals.
