Sutter Health HMO Looks To Offer Coverage in Bay Area
On Friday, Sutter Health filed an application with the California Department of Managed Health Care seeking to expand its recently launched HMO to Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco and San Mateo counties for the 2016 enrollment period. The HMO, called Sutter Health Plus, was launched in January 2014 in the Sacramento and San Joaquin region. It later expanded to Sonoma County and currently has nearly 13,000 members.
