HMO plans to expand into North Bay
North Bay Business Journal

Sacramento-based HMO Western Health Advantage has filed for an expansion into Marin and Sonoma counties, where it hopes to partner with the Marin-Sonoma IPA and much of the region’s hospitals in offering a new health plan for employers and individuals.

In June, the health maintenance organization filed plans with the state Department of Managed Health Care, which must approve of any move into new territory for any commercial health plan.

Currently, Western Health Advantage operates in Solano, Yolo, Sacramento, Placer and El Dorado counties and serves some 92,000 members.
