The North Bay soon will have three new health-plan providers: Western Health Advantage, Blue Cross of California and Sutter Health.

Sacramento-based Western Health Advantage on Jan. 1 is expanding its business into Marin, Sonoma and Napa counties. Novato-based Meritage Medical Network, formerly known as the Marin-Sonoma IPA, in October officially made known its plan to earn accountable care organization, or ACO, designation by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act of 2010.
