For over 35 years, Molina Healthcare has provided insurance to those individuals who receive government assistance. Molina Healthcare, which was established in 1980 after the founder of the company, C. David Molina, noticed the increasing need for better healthcare services for low-income, uninsured, and immigrants who were frequently visiting the emergency room for basic healthcare needs. Today, Molina Healthcare is home to 3.5 million members who utilize the insurance provided through this company with humble beginnings.
Those under Molina Healthcare have access to several health plans, including Medicaid, Medicare, Integrated Medicaid/Medicare, and Molina Marketplace, which is a plan that allows Medicaid members to switch over to Marketplace but remain with their providers during the switch.
Molina Healthcare gives members access to the Quality Improvement Program, which does several things for members including taking action when there is a problem with the quality of care that is provided, offering members a guide that helps them know what care is needed and when, and ensures members have access to quality care. Additionally, Molina Healthcare offers the Patient Safety Program, where learning how to make the best decisions for one’s overall health can occur.

With the 24-hour behavioral health crisis line that members can access, they are never without a helping hand.
