California Company Purchases KY Medicaid Managed Care Company

Passport Health Plan, a Kentucky-based Medicaid managed care company, has agreed to be purchased by a competitor in a deal expected to preserve hundreds of jobs.

Molina Healthcare of California announced Friday that the purchase price for Passport is about $20 million and that it will fund the purchase with cash on hand. The announcement comes six weeks after Passport was shut out of a new state Medicaid contract.

Molina was one of the successful bidders for Kentucky’s multi-billion-dollar Medicaid plan that covers 1.4 million people.
