Hill Physicians inks its first non-HMO deal
Sacramento Business Journal

Hill Physicians Medical Group is making its first foray outside managed care. The San Ramon-based group is known for the way its doctors serve as gatekeepers to care in the HMO world, but a deal with Aetna — announced this week — extends care coordination services to Aetna members in less-restrictive plans who live in Sacramento and San Joaquin counties.

This agreement is different from an earlier announcement that Hill Physicians and Dignity Health have teamed up with Aetna in an “accountable care organization” plan that hopes to offer coverage to business owners, labor unions and others beginning in April 2015.
