Nevada County Medi-Cal Recipients Move to Partnership HealthPlan

Health care

Nevada County’s 25,000 Medi-Cal recipients will be served by Partnership HealthPlan of California beginning in January. 

They are now served by California Health & Wellness and Anthem Blue Cross.  Most people affected by the switch should be able to continue to see their same health care providers, Ryan Gruver, the Nevada County Health and Human Services director told the Board of Supervisors Tuesday. 

“Partnership has gone to great pains to contract with as many of the current providers as possible,” said Gruver. “People will see a change in who is their health insurance plan is, but they shouldn’t see a change in their services.” 

Partnership is contracting with Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital, Western Sierra Health Center, Chapa-De Indian Health, Tahoe Forest Hospital and Sierra Family Medical among other providers in the area. 

In addition, Partnership is also working to recruit more health care providers to serve Medi-Cal recipients in the county through incentives, Tim Sharp, Partnership regional director, told the board. 

Partnership HealthPlan is a non-profit community-based health care organization that contracts with the state to administer Medi-Cal benefits through local care providers. The money Partnership makes is reinvested in the community, Sharp said.
