Sutter Health to take on more Medicare Advantage patients
Sacramento Business Journal

Sutter Health is partnering with a Medicare Advantage plan to serve more seniors in 2020. 

The Sacramento-based health system said Tuesday that it’s starting a new partnership with Alignment Healthcare, which is expanding its Medicare Advantage service area into Northern California. Medicare Advantage plans are privately operated plans that contract with Medicare, the federal health program for seniors. Under the partnership, Sutter’s doctors and facilities will be “in-network” for the health plan.
