Sutter HMO signs up 5,000, eyes Bay Area expansion
Sacramento Business Journal

Sutter Health has enrolled more than 5,000 people in its new HMO and plans to expand to the Bay Area next year.

Approved by state regulators in 2013, Sutter Health Plus kicked off coverage in eight counties in the Sacramento and the San Joaquin Valley region on Jan. 1. The Sacramento-based health system had projected initial enrollment of about 7,000, but health plan CEO Steve Nolte says the bar was set pretty high.
