Anthem closes acquisition of Integra Managed Care

Anthem has closed its acquisition of New York-based Integra Managed Care.

The insurer announced plans to acquire Integra, a long-term care plan, in November. The plan will bring more than 40,000 Medicaid members into the Anthem fold and offers coverage to assist with managing long-term care needs and disabilities in the home.

“We’re pleased to complete this acquisition and work alongside our new colleagues as we continue to grow our Medicaid business and enhance the healthcare experience for all of our members,” said Felicia Norwood, executive vice president of Anthem’s government business division, in a statement.

“Anthem and Integra’s shared commitment to deliver high quality, comprehensive whole-health care across communities throughout New York ensures that our members will continue to receive the care and support services that they have come to expect," Norwood said.

Integra offers members a dedicated care management team that includes a registered nurse, a social worker and a coordinator. The team works alongside the member, their family or caregivers and providers to ensure their long-term care needs are successfully met.

Integra's team has joined Anthem's government business division. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
