Contract preserves in-network access for over 350,000 Molina members in Texas

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Molina Healthcare of Texas (“Molina”) and U.S. Anesthesia Partners, Inc. (USAP) today announced a long-term agreement for USAP to be in-network with Molina in Texas.

“Molina Healthcare of Texas is pleased to partner with USAP to ensure members have access to additional high-quality in-network anesthesia clinicians,” said Anne Rote, plan president for Molina Healthcare of Texas. “Contracting with USAP is an important part of our network strategy because it enables a seamless and transparent outcome for our members.”

At a time when many individuals are turning to public insurance options after losing access to employer-sponsored benefits, Molina’s Medicaid and ACA members will all be able to receive high-quality, in-network anesthesia care from USAP clinicians throughout the state.

“Texas is home to over 2,500 USAP clinicians who serve over one million patients each year in 147 Texas hospitals and 152 surgery centers and other care facilities,” said Jon Giacomin, USAP’s chief executive officer. “With this agreement, USAP and Molina have demonstrated the importance of enlightened plans and providers coming together, particularly in the midst of a global pandemic, to ensure patients are not caught in the middle when it comes to accessing quality in-network care.”

Across the country, USAP has long had an “in-network” strategy that last year resulted in over 94 percent of its over 2.3 million cases being processed as in-network.
