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, SCAN is keeping more seniors healthy and independent in more places than ever. SCAN Health Plan provides award-winning Medicare Advantage coverage to our California members, while SCAN Desert Health Plan and SCAN Health Plan (Nevada) provide Medicare Advantage coverage to people in Arizona and Nevada, respectively. Independence at Home, a SCAN community service, provides vitally needed services and support to seniors and their caregivers regardless of plan membership. 

SCAN’s parent organization, SCAN Group, is a mission-driven organization that is implementing new ways to deliver evidence-based, patient-centered care to older adults.
