SCAN Health Plan Medicare Plans
SCAN Health Plan has been serving their members since 1977, when several frustrated seniors decided to form a company that met their health care necessities. The result was the Senior Care Action Network, today called the SCAN Health Plan. The main goal of SCAN has remained the same since the beginning, to develop creative ways of allowing seniors to administer their own health care and to manage their lifestyles. SCAN has been able to provide necessary health services to provide over 50,000 seniors with the ability to remain outside of skilled nursing facilities.
SCAN currently provides coverage to more than 110,000 people in several California counties as well as Maricopa County, Arizona. They are currently the provider of the fourth biggest nonprofit Medicare Advantage health care program in the US.
SCAN has their headquarters in Long Beach. They currently employ about 800 people and serve California residents of Kern, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, and Ventura counties. They also serve Arizona’s Maricopa County. SCAN Health Plan extended its services to northern California, including Santa Clara, San Francisco, and Contra Costa counties throughout 2009. By acquiring Medcore Health plan, SCAN was able to expand coverage and is proud to be serving over 2,000 additional individuals in San Joaquin County.
