AmeriChoice, a UnitedHealth Group company, has acquired Unison Health Plan, a provider of government-sponsored health plan coverage to approximately 380,000 people.

On a combined basis, AmeriChoice and Unison serve more than two million beneficiaries of government-sponsored health care programs in 21 states and the District of Columbia, including Unison’s operations in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Tennessee, Delaware, South Carolina and Washington, DC.

Unison facilitates access to health care for traditionally underserved populations through its participation in state Medicaid, State Children’s Health Insurance Programs (SCHIP), Adult Basic Programs and Medicare Special Needs Plans.

Rick Jelinek, CEO of AmeriChoice, said: We are looking forward to working with the management and staff of Unison, the many fine physicians, hospitals and other health care professionals affiliated with the company and the states it serves to deliver quality health care services to its members.
