Medica is in the process of acquiring Mayo Clinic Health Solutions, also known as MMSI, the health benefits management company and third-party administrator. It provides services and health care products to 260,000 members through 28 group clients, including Mayo's employee health plans.
According to a news report, about 200 MMSI employees will be affected. That report said employees would have options to move to other positions at Mayo or work with Medica, and there was no mention of layoffs. Though the deal closes this year, the transition will take more like two years.
