Date Posted: 09/17/2019

LONG BEACH, Calif.—Sept. 17, 2019—SCAN Health Plan®, one of the nation’s largest not-for-profit Medicare Advantage health plans, today announced the addition of CareMore Health to its provider network in Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties, effective Aug. 1, 2019. Building upon the organizations’ existing collaboration in Santa Clara County, the geographic expansion will offer SCAN members in Southern California more options for high-quality, comprehensive, coordinated care.

“We greatly value partners like CareMore Health, whose ideals closely align with SCAN’s mission of keeping seniors healthy and independent,” said Sherry Stanislaw, general manager of SCAN Health Plan. “SCAN’s goal is to provide affordable access to the high-quality care and services our members need and deserve. Adding CareMore to our physician network in some of our largest service areas helps us continue to deliver on our mission.”

CareMore is a nationally-known integrated care delivery system that serves over 150,000 patients across the country. As of Aug. 1, 2019, CareMore added over 500 new providers and 10 new medical groups to the SCAN network in Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties. CareMore joined SCAN’s provider network in Santa Clara County in January 2019.

“By working with mission-driven organizations like SCAN, we grow closer to achieving our mission of providing even more patients with our innovative model of integrated care,” said Sachin H. Jain, MD, president and CEO of CareMore Health. “We are pleased to expand our collaboration, and help SCAN members address barriers they may have when accessing care. SCAN and CareMore’s joint focus on value-based care and addressing social determinants of health makes this a perfect marriage.”

SCAN members will now have access to CareMore’s digital and virtual care offerings and 26 CareMore Care Centers across the four counties of service, offering a range of programs such as disease management, health education, exercise, behavioral health, and nutrition education. The healthcare professionals at these centers include doctors, nurses, social workers, pharmacists, behavioral health specialists and more. CareMore has gained distinction for its programs addressing senior loneliness and social isolation.
