LONG BEACH, Calif., August 1, 2023——SCAN Health Plan, the second largest not-for-profit Medicare Advantage plan in California with nearly five decades of experience keeping seniors healthy and independent, plans to expand to California’s Fresno County and Madera County, pending regulatory approval.

“As SCAN continues to grow and pioneer a revolution in how we care for older people in our country, we are committed to bringing a mission-driven not for profit option to more older adults everywhere,” said Karen Schulte, president of Medicare Advantage for SCAN Health Plan. “We give our members and their families peace of mind knowing that SCAN prioritizes their health and independence over everything else.”

“We are excited to bring our award-winning affordable and personalized Medicare Advantage plans to new areas of Northern California,” said Quingan Zhou, general manager, Northern California & Expansion States at SCAN. “Our decision to expand our footprint in Northern California was driven by invitations from local health systems and medical groups who align with SCAN’s member-first approach to care and differentiated service and benefit experience.”

SCAN Health Plan is a subsidiary of SCAN Group, a not-for-profit organization tackling some of the biggest healthcare challenges facing seniors today. SCAN operates health plans in California, Arizona, Nevada and Texas.

The expansion is a key element of SCAN’s major growth and diversification initiatives.
