With so many issues of our healthcare system being tossed around politics, it seems that the government and healthcare industries are moving in to create solutions of their own, ones that could affect the way these problems can be solved. Healthcare companies are able to provide more efficient care for their patients by creating new partnerships and expanding programs, and Molina Healthcare Inc. is being recognized for doing just that.
Today, Centennial Care revealed that it has selected Molina Healthcare’s New Mexico health plan to participate in its new care program, which will create higher quality behavioral healthcare as well as long-term care services.
When Molina Healthcare opened 30 years ago, it was a small medical clinic in California. Today, it is a renowned FORTUNE 500 company that provides health care for individuals and families who are not financially secure by offering care delivery systems for Medicaid and Medicare programs.
"Molina Healthcare has a long history of caring for New Mexico's Medicaid members. We are delighted to continue our partnership with HSD as it launches the new Centennial Care program," explained Patty Kehoe, president of Molina Healthcare of New Mexico. "Our organization has always been committed to providing access to quality care for our members. We plan to draw on our extensive experience to successfully implement this exciting new program."
By becoming a part of the new program, Centennial Care will help modernize Molina Healthcare’s Medicaid program in New Mexico by creating a health care system that is much more involved in the state, health plans, providers and members and is far less costly. With the new eligible population under the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid expansion will also be enrolled under the Centennial Care.
Currently, Molina Healthcare serves about 90,000 Medicaid and Medicare beneficiaries statewide in New Mexico and operates two primary care clinics in Albuquerque and Sante Fe through an affiliate company.
