Michigan Blue, Detroit, is an independent, nonprofit health carrier.

The deal also is subject to approval by other state and federal regulators.

Michigan Blue and the University of Michigan plan to start a joint venture that would promote improvements in the health of the organizations’ health plan members and of Michigan residents, Michigan Blue says.

Michigan Blue notes that it is unclear how many M-CARE employees it would retain if the deal is completed.
