Anthem Blue Cross is collaborating with Imperial Health Holdings Medical Group to offer a Medicare Advantage Plan in California.
The joint effort will be through Anthem MediBlue Select (HMO), a 2019 Anthem Medicare Advantage health plan.
In addition to this agreement, Imperial Health will provide care to consumers enrolled in other Anthem Medicare Advantage plans, such as Anthem MediBlue Plus, Anthem MediBlue Coordination Plus, and Anthem MediBlue Dual Plus.
Imperial delivers coordinated care through its network of primary care physicians, specialists, hospitals, urgent care centers, ancillary services, imaging centers, and pharmacies. The organization will give consumers access to care throughout various regions of the state, including Fresno, Sacramento, and San Diego.
Josh Martin, president of Anthem’s Medicare West Region, said: “Anthem strives to develop meaningful products and solutions that help consumers improve their health and well-being. We are excited to partner with Imperial Health and offer individuals in California a Medicare Advantage plan that delivers the high-quality care they expect from Anthem. This collaboration will also give consumers increased access to care providers and medical specialties that will make it easier for them to receive the care they need in their community.”
Pavel Bindra, MD, CEO of Imperial Health Holdings Medical Group, commented: “Imperial seeks to deliver care that is of high value by deploying a well aligned team of providers who seek to deliver high quality care. We strive to ensure patient care is well coordinated across the entire continuum of care. Through high impact contact with our members, utilizing our disease management, care coordination and complex case management teams, we seek to reduce the burden of disease for our members.”
