Adventist Health Team Up with Community Medical Centers
Dec 18 15
Adventist Health announced that it is teaming up with a four-hospital system in Fresno in a HMO that will serve Medi-Cal patients in the San Joaquin Valley. The Roseville-based health system reached agreement on a joint venture with Community Medical Centers. Subject to state approval, the new plan could be marketed in Fresno, Kings, Madera and Tulare counties by next fall. Officials estimate the HMO could deliver care to as many as 200,000 patients within two years of launch. The idea is to build upon an Adventist managed-care plan set to launch in Kings County on Jan. 1. While Adventist has a full Knox-Keene license, the plan is to subcontract with Health Net, Anthem Blue Cross and CalViva Health to administer benefits in counties where they have a presence.
