Inclusa Deal Will Give Humana Greater Foothold in Wisconsin, Medicaid

  • Aug 19, 2022

    Fresh off of touting its organic Medicaid growth during its second-quarter 2022 earnings call, Humana Inc. recently unveiled an acquisition that will help the insurer grow its Medicaid business inorganically as well. Industry analysts say it’s a sound strategic move, but they add that Humana’s growing Medicaid assets aren’t likely to eclipse its focus on Medicare Advantage anytime soon. 

    The Louisville, Ky.-based company said on Aug. 12 that it will purchase substantially all the assets of Inclusa, which provides long-term services and supports to about 16,600 older adults and adults with disabilities through Wisconsin’s Family Care program. Humana already has a Medicaid presence in Wisconsin, having purchased the insurer iCare there in 2020.
