Ohana is owned by WellCare, recently acquired by Centene.

Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, which is currently operating as a fifth MCO, responded to this RFP in an affiliation model with AlohaCare.  Kaiser will remain as a key provider on Maui, regardless of its role as a Medicaid payer in this RFP process.
