LGBTQ+ Health

Our mission at SCAN is to help all our members be healthy and independent with the care and services that meet their individual health needs. But we know that people in the LGBTQ+ community haven’t always been able to count on getting the kind of personalized care needed for their best health and wellbeing. As a SCAN member, we want you to know that you can count on us for:

  • Benefits that can support your health and wellness goals, like our Included LGBTQ+ benefit
  • Information and resources that can empower you to participate more fully in your healthcare


SCAN has introduced a plan geared to the needs of the LGBTQ+ Community
SCAN now offers SCAN Affirm Partnered with Included LGBTQ+ Health (HMO), a pioneering, first-of-its-kind Medicare Advantage plan exclusively for LGBTQ+ older adults, available in Los Angeles and Riverside Counties. Click here to learn more about the plan and see if it’s right for you.
