SCAN Ventures Outside Golden State With Ariz., Nev. Offerings

Following a slew of announcements from Medicare Advantage insurers unveiling new service areas for 2022, SCAN Health Plan on Sept. 9 said it plans to expand its reach beyond California to two new states next year. The Long Beach, Calif.-based insurer currently serves more than 220,000 members in California and is one of the nation’s largest not-for-profit MA plans.

During the upcoming Annual Election Period (AEP), which starts on Oct. 15, Medicare beneficiaries residing in Clark County, Nevada, can enroll in SCAN Health Plan. And in the Arizona counties of Maricopa, Pima and Pinal, individuals can sign up with SCAN Desert Health Plan. UnitedHealthcare currently dominates both markets, followed by Humana Inc. (see charts below). In addition, SCAN’s MA plans will be available in two new California counties — Alameda and San Mateo — enabling it to reach more than 5 million potential customers across 17 markets in three states. SCAN will communicate with potential customers in five different languages, including English, Spanish, Korean and Chinese.
