Sutter Health Plus anticipates another strong year

As Sutter Health Plus gears up for another busy open enrollment season, the not-for-profit HMO continues to exceed membership targets and is expected to end the year with 48,000 members. In fact, in 2015 the health plan experienced a 260 percent growth rate. Customer renewals are strong—at over 90 percent.

Sutter Health is pleased with the growth and geographic expansion of Sutter Health Plus, and the not-for-profit network remains committed to growing its health plan. Sutter Health Plus aligns with Sutter Health’s overall mission of providing communities with affordable access to high-quality care.

“Sutter Health Plus is an important part of Sutter Health’s overall strategy to transform health care in Northern California,” said Tracy Messineo, interim CEO of Sutter Health Plus.

Today, the health plan provides competitively priced coverage to more than 46,000 members in the Sacramento, Central Valley and Bay Area communities. Its provider network includes 25 hospitals and campuses and 5,000 doctors.

“It’s exciting to see more new enrollees and returning members select Sutter Health Plus—it demonstrates we’re delivering a high-value product,” continued Messineo.
