Molina Healthcare has entered into a definitive agreement to sell its wholly-owned subsidiary, Molina Medicaid Solutions (MMS), a Medicaid management information systems (MMIS) business, to DXC Technology.
The net purchase price for the equity interests of MMS is estimated to be approximately $220 million after certain adjustments, and the transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2018, the company said.
MMS provides support to state Medicaid agencies in the administration of the states’ Medicaid programs, including business processing, information technology development, and administrative services. MMS is under contract with Medicaid agencies in six states and the US Virgin Islands.
DXC Technology provides health and human services to government agencies across the US through more than 8,000 professionals, offering fiscal agent services, MMIS, program integrity, care management, immunization registry, and eligibility services.
“The sale of Molina Medicaid Solutions will give us the flexibility to invest and refocus resources in our core health plan business,” said Joe Zubretsky, chief executive officer for Molina Healthcare. “We are confident that DXC will be an excellent partner for Medicaid agencies, providers, and employees moving forward, and that this transaction represents an opportunity for MMS to grow and unlock value in its business.”
Mike Lawrie, DXC Technology chairman, president and CEO, commented: “For many years DXC Technology’s goal has been to provide the highest quality services to state agencies in the administration of Medicaid programs, including business processing, information technology development, and administrative services.
“Both MMS and DXC Technology have proven track records and a shared commitment to these important programs. Together, our deep experience and technology expertise can bring new benefits to state agencies and Medicaid recipients.”
