Molina Healthcare was started in 1980 when an emergency room physician, C. David Molina noticed that low-income, uninsured or non-English speaking patients were coming into the ER for general health care services.
Molina opened a clinic in Long Beach, California. Since then, Molina has grown into a health care plan serving patients across the country. In 2012, Molina Healthcare had over 1.8 million members nationwide. Molina Healthcare was also named a Fortune 500 company in 2012.
