Sutter Health Expands Health Plan to Sonoma County
Sutter Health’s health plan that serves the greater Sacramento and Central Valley areas, Sutter Health Plus, will now offer its competitively priced products in the Sonoma County community. The announcement comes after the Department of Managed Health Care approved the HMO’s expansion plans.
Not-for-profit Sutter Health decided to start its own health plan as a way to partner directly with patients to manage their total health needs, including quality and cost of care. Now, after a full year of operations, Sutter Health Plus is ready to offer Sonoma County the same affordably priced HMO products available elsewhere in its service area.
In Sonoma County, Sutter Health Plus’ network includes the new $284 million state-of-the-art Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital; Sutter Pacific Medical Foundation, including locations in Santa Rosa, Rohnert Park, Sebastopol and Healdsburg; Sutter Medical Group of the Redwoods; and Novato Community Hospital in Marin County.
