Senior Care Action Network®: Where we started. Where we’re headed.
Keeping Seniors Healthy and Independent. That's been the SCAN mission since the organization was founded in 1977.
We began when a group of senior activists in Long Beach, California got together, determined to improve access to the care and services they needed so they could stay as independent as possible. They brought together experts in medicine, gerontology, psychology, and social services and formed the not-for-profit Senior Care Action Network—SCAN.
“The older people who were advocating for this organization wanted the idea of action in the name.” - Jodi Cohn, Original Planning Team Member
Today, SCAN Group continues to take action, implementing new ways to deliver evidence-based, patient-centered care to older adults.
SCAN is keeping more seniors healthy and independent in more places than ever. SCAN Health Plan provides award-winning Medicare Advantage coverage to members in California and Nevada, while Medicare beneficiaries in Arizona are served by SCAN Desert Health Plan. Independence at Home, a SCAN community service, provides vitally needed services and support to seniors and their caregivers regardless of plan membership.
