UnitedHealthcare is now offering a health benefit plan to Medi-Cal beneficiaries in San Diego County.
Called UnitedHealthcare Community Plan, coverage includes preventive care, primary care, hospitalization, prescriptions and other services, often at low or no cost for enrollees, according to the company. Those enrolled also have access to wellness programs, such as nurse outreach and support for managing chronic diseases and a program for expectant mothers.
“This opportunity allows us to provide people in San Diego County with access to affordable, quality health care, particularly preventive care,” Kevin Kandalaft, CEO of UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of California, said in a news release. “We look forward to engaging with local health and community-based organizations to help improve the health of UnitedHealthcare plan participants in San Diego.”
Based in Minnetonka, Minnesota, United Healthcare covers more than 3.8 million Californians enrolled in employer-sponsored, individual and Medicare plans. Its network spans more than 360 hospitals and 100,000 physicians and other care providers statewide.
