myPlace Health will Provide Integrated Healthcare Services and Care to Older Adults with Significant Healthcare Needs

LONG BEACH, Calif., Feb 6, 2023myPlace Health, an integrated care delivery organization launched by SCAN Group and Commonwealth Care Alliance (CCA) to provide personalized care through the PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) model, has entered its first service market and opened the doors to its first care center located just west of downtown Los Angeles.

myPlace Health offers health coverage and services — at no or low cost — to PACE-eligible seniors within its 95-zip code service area in Los Angeles, many of whom are low-income and are living with complex health and social needs.

“We are excited to open the doors of our first care center and offer our unique model to serve vulnerable and frail older adults in the Los Angeles community,” said Robbie Pottharst, CEO of myPlace Health. "We are extremely grateful for the unwavering support we’ve received from our sponsors, SCAN and CCA, plus our community partners and local officials during the opening process. We look forward to pursuing our mission to enable older adults to live the independent lives they deserve, where they can safely live in the communities they love and homes they cherish.”

myPlace Health was founded and launched in 2021 by SCAN Group and Commonwealth Care Alliance® (CCA), two not-for-profit healthcare organizations with extensive experience serving low-income and high-needs older adults, and is designed to deliver all the services individuals are eligible for under Medi-Cal/Medicaid and Medicare to older adults who wish to remain living in their homes and communities for as long as possible. Services offered by myPlace Health include comprehensive health coverage; coordinated primary and specialty care; adult day care and social activities; medications delivered to the home; transportation; and other benefits designed to help older adults live independently in the community.

“By bringing together the collective expertise of myPlace Health, CCA and SCAN, we are excited to bring myPlace Health’s state-of-the-art care facility to the Los Angeles community,” said Sachin Jain, CEO of SCAN Group and SCAN Health Plan. “We are confident that myPlace’s unique PACE and integrated care delivery model will meet the complex health needs of Los Angeles residents and become an integral part of the diverse and vibrant communities it serves.”

“We are pleased to mark this important milestone as myPlace Health opens the doors to its first location, bringing our shared vision to reality and ensuring more seniors have access to the health and social resources they need to live independently in their communities,” said Chris Palmieri, President & CEO of CCA. “We look forward to our continued partnership with our colleagues at myPlace Health and SCAN as we work to expand options for PACE eligible seniors to remain successfully at home.”

PACE providers receive capitation payments from Medicare and Medicaid to provide a comprehensive suite of services that include insurance coverage, medical care, and social services – and is a welcome alternative to nursing home care for many older adults. To qualify for PACE, individuals must be 55 or older, eligible for Medi-Cal/Medicaid only or dually eligible for Medi-Cal/Medicaid and Medicare and be certified by the state to need nursing facility level of care (NFLOC).

The care center is located at 121 South Mountain View Avenue, Los Angeles. myPlace Health intends to open a second location in 2025 that will serve the southern part of Los Angeles County.
