LONG BEACH, Calif. -- Molina Healthcare, Inc. (NYSE: MOH) announced today that its health plan subsidiary in Ohio, Molina Healthcare of Ohio, Inc., has been selected to proceed into the readiness review phase in all four regions of the state for which it had submitted applications. The selection of Molina Healthcare of Ohio was made by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) in connection with its statewide expansion of Ohio's Medicaid managed care program. In response to the Request for Applications (RFA) issued on November 30, 2005, Molina Healthcare of Ohio submitted applications to provide healthcare services to Covered Families and Children (CFC) Medicaid eligibles in the Central, Southeast, Southwest and West Central regions of Ohio.

No price bid was involved.

Prior to receiving a provider agreement, Molina Healthcare of Ohio must complete by July 31, 2006, a comprehensive pre-contracting assessment, or readiness review, in order to ensure that it is capable and prepared to meet all ODJFS program requirements.
