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.
