Date Posted: 10/26/2021
LONG BEACH, Calif., October 26, 2021—SCAN Health Plan is expanding its relationship with CareMore Health and adding its providers to its Medicare Advantage plan networks in Arizona and Nevada. As a result, SCAN members in the two states will gain access to 3,350 CareMore providers when SCAN launches in Arizona and Nevada on January 1, 2022.
SCAN currently provides access to CareMore’s provider network to members in California.
“We look forward to building on our existing relationship with CareMore Health as we bring quality care and comprehensive coverage to Medicare beneficiaries in Arizona and Nevada,” said Sherry Stanislaw, general manager of SCAN Health Plan. “SCAN’s mission is to keep older adults healthy and independent and we’re proud to align with CareMore, an organization that shares our commitment to serving the health needs of older adults.”
For more than twenty-five years, CareMore’s patient-centered model has delivered highly-coordinated, integrated care to help every member achieve optimal health outcomes, including those with chronic conditions like COPD, diabetes and congestive heart failure. The model also includes programs to address important issues like food inequity, mental health and other aging-specific concerns.
SCAN Health Plan is a division of SCAN Group. The expansion into Nevada and Arizona—the first time SCAN has expanded its reach beyond the Golden State and into two new markets simultaneously—is a key element of SCAN’s major growth and diversification initiatives. The not-for-profit recently announced several new business initiatives, including Welcome Health, a start-up geriatric primary care medical group that will treat older adults through a combination of virtual and in-home visits, and Healthcare in Action, a new medical group that will provide healthcare and other services to individuals experiencing homelessness.
SCAN also recently announced a series of strategic investments in outside companies that share its mission to support healthier aging.
Members can enroll in one of SCAN’s health plans with CareMore Health for calendar year 2022 starting on October 1, 2021. Other provider groups are also available in SCAN’s network.
