SCAN Group, parent company of SCAN Health Plan, said last week that it plans to combine with CareOregon to become HealthRight Group. But the deal has yet to be approved by regulators — and because of Oregon’s strict antitrust laws and proactive regulators, the successful execution of the deal isn’t a given, experts tell AIS Health.
If the deal goes forward, the two nonprofit health plans will become one organization with revenues of $6.8 billion. SCAN operates Medicare Advantage plans in California, Arizona and Nevada, with MA operations launching in Texas starting in 2023. CareOregon serves about 500,000 members of Medicaid and CHIP plans, alongside some dual-eligible members. Together, they expect to serve nearly 800,000 health plan members.
