Medica now majority owner of Dean Health Plan

Last year, Minnesota-based Medica acquired 55% of Madison-based Dean Health Plan for $232.7 million, according to a Wisconsin State Journal report. The details of the sale completed on Dec. 1, 2021, were recently made public. With the purchase, Medica now has more of a presence in Wisconsin with the plan covering about 476,000 people in the state. Medica, with the addition of Dean Health Plan participants, covers about 1.5 million people. Until the sale, Dean was previously solely owned by Missouri-based SSM Health.
