About SCAN

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, now known as SCAN.

Today we deliver on our mission through a variety of divisions and services including: SCAN Health Plan, Independence at Home, and various community benefit programs throughout our California service area. We invite you to learn more by clicking on the links below.
