Sacramento County is biggest client in Sutter HMO
Sacramento Business Journal

When Sutter Health shopped for members at its new HMO plan for 2014, Sacramento County became the biggest client. Roughly one in five Sutter Health Plus members are Sacramento County employees or their dependents. Worried about over dependence on Kaiser Permanente and hammered by rising costs at Blue Shield and a decision by Health Net to bow out of the pool in 2014, the county decided to replace Blue Shield and Health Net with two local plans: Sutter Health Plus and Western Health Advantage.
