SCAN Health Plan Expands Southern California Provider Network

LONG BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SCAN Health Plan announced today that four new medical groups have
joined the health plan’s provider network in Southern California. As a
result, SCAN members in Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties
now have access to an expanded network of primary care and specialty
physicians and hospitals.

SCAN is one of the nation’s largest not-for-profit Medicare Advantage
plans currently serving more than 170,000 members. Unlike most health
plans SCAN has no commercial members, which allows the plan to focus all
of its energy and resources in serving the unique needs of seniors and
understanding them better.

“We are pleased to add these well-known and well-respected groups to our
already outstanding provider network,” said Sherry Stanislaw, general
manager for SCAN in Southern California.

In San Bernardino County two new groups have joined SCAN’s provider
network: Loma Linda University Faculty Medical Group and Upland Medical
Group. Effective January 1, 2016, SCAN members will have access to 40
primary care physicians at Loma Linda University Faculty Medical
Group as well as access to Loma Linda University Medical Center. Also
effective January 1, 2016, Upland Medical Group will join the SCAN
provider network, bringing 53 primary care physicians and offering SCAN
members access to San Antonio Regional Medical Center.

In Los Angeles County Torrance Health IPA joined the SCAN provider
network effective October 2015 giving SCAN members the option to choose
from the group’s 98 primary care physicians and access to Torrance
Memorial Medical Center.

Seoul Medical Group, whose primary focus is to provide quality
healthcare to the Korean Community, also joined the SCAN provider
network in Los Angeles and Orange counties effective October 2015. SCAN
members now have the option to choose from the group’s 46 primary care
physicians in Los Angeles County and 12 primary care physicians in
Orange County. The group’s contracted hospitals are Hollywood
Presbyterian Medical Center, St. Vincent Medical Center, Anaheim
Regional Medical Center and Western Medical Center.

All SCAN members receive all of the basic benefits traditionally covered
under Original Medicare as well as a prescription drug benefit (Medicare
Part D), while paying no deductibles and low copays for most services.
Other benefits may include vision, routine transportation and hearing

The annual enrollment period for selecting a Medicare Advantage plan for
2016 runs from October 15 to December 7, 2015. During this time seniors
and others on Medicare may choose to switch their health plan or move
from traditional Medicare to a Medicare Advantage plan (or move back to
Original Medicare) with their new elections taking effect January 1,
