Where We’ve Been
Total Health Care, Inc., a fully licensed and federally qualified managed care organization founded and
incorporated as a non-profit corporation on July 16, 1973 , making us the oldest HMO in southeastern Michigan.
First incorporated as Model Neighborhood Total Health Care (MNTHC), we got our start as part of the federally
subsidized model neighborhood programs of then President Lyndon B. Johnson. The organization, with its strong
community orientation, was located strategically within the City of Detroit at a major hospital center.
In November 1982, the organization was reincorporated under the name Total Health Care, Inc. and functioned
as a staff model HMO whose delivery system consisted of three health centers, six associated hospitals, and
several related referral facilities. Total Health Care expanded its service area in mid-1981 to include all of Wayne,
Oakland, and Macomb counties, as well as portions of Monroe County. THC evolved to a mixed model HMO
(staff/IPA) for a period of time, but assumed a strictly network IPA model in 1984.
Who We Are
Our governing body consisting of six board members, four of whom are elected by the subscriber members and
two who are appointed from the business and professional communities. We’ve been fully accredited by the
National Committee on Quality Assurance (NCQA) since May of 2007.
