Molina Healthcare Awarded Florida Medicaid Managed Care Contracts

Molina Healthcare, Inc. (NYSE: MOH) today announced that its wholly
owned subsidiary, Molina Healthcare of Florida, Inc., has been awarded
Medicaid Managed Care contracts by the Florida Agency for Health Care
Administration in Regions 8 and 11 of the Florida Statewide Medicaid
Managed Care Invitation to Negotiate (ITN). The Company currently serves
approximately 105,000 Medicaid members in those regions, which include
Miami-Dade, Monroe, Sarasota, DeSoto, Charlotte, Glades, Hendry and
Collier Counties, representing approximately $550 million in annual
revenue. Services under the new contract are expected to begin on
January 1, 2019.

“With these contract awards, we will not only continue to serve Medicaid
members in Regions 8 and 11, but we are positioned to maintain and grow
our Marketplace and Medicare businesses in Florida,” said Joe Zubretsky,
president and chief executive officer of Molina Healthcare, Inc. “We
will have the geographic footprint and scale in this important managed
care market, which will now continue to be a significant contributor to
our enterprise business portfolio.”

“Molina Healthcare is proud to be able to continue our partnership with
AHCA to provide access to high quality care in Regions 8 and 11,” said
Pamela Sedmak, executive vice president of health plan operations of
Molina Healthcare, Inc. “We are grateful for the opportunity to serve
Medicaid beneficiaries in Florida, and we are committed to delivering
value for members, providers, and government partners across the state.”

In May 2018, Molina filed protests of AHCA’s Medicaid Managed Care
awards in all eleven regions of Florida. The awards of Regions 8 and 11
are the result of negotiations between Molina and AHCA, and Molina has
now withdrawn its protests in all regions. In addition to the two
regions where Molina will coordinate care for Medicaid beneficiaries in
2019, Molina will also continue to offer Medicare and Marketplace
products across Florida.
