UnitedHealthcare's New Health Benefit Product Featuring "High-Performance Networks" Expands To Northern California

UnitedHealthcare is expanding its “SignatureValue Alliance” health plan to Northern California, giving local business owners a new health plan option featuring high-performance care provider networks committed to delivering effective, evidence-based and cost-efficient care.

The SignatureValue Alliance plan is available to Northern California businesses with 51 or more employees. The plan enables employers and employees to save on their health care costs through lower premiums while still having access to a wide range of traditional and deductible HMO plans.

The Alliance care provider network includes four large physician groups in Northern California that include 27 hospitals and nearly 12,600 physicians and specialists. Participating Alliance physician groups are: Sutter Health, including the Palo Alto Medical Foundation, Sutter East Bay Medical Foundation, Sutter Gould Medical Foundation, Sutter Medical Foundation, and Sutter Pacific Medical Foundation; Brown & Toland Physicians; Affinity Medical Group; and DCHS Medical Foundation. Together, the Alliance network provides its plan customers a broad selection of quality facilities, physicians and specialists across Northern California.

The participating medical groups were included based on technological sophistication, clinical performance and quality measures, and an ability to deliver health care cost savings. High-performance networks, which include physicians rated both on quality and efficiency measures, are becoming increasingly popular as a way to improve outcomes and more effectively manage costs.

“UnitedHealthcare’s SignatureValue Alliance offers the quality and value employers are looking for when choosing their health coverage because it combines the affordability of an HMO with access to high-quality health care professionals,” said Brandon Cuevas, CEO, UnitedHealthcare of California. “Plan participants enjoy comprehensive health benefits coverage and access to a wide, local care provider network of quality doctors and hospitals.”

“Sutter Health and UnitedHealthcare share the commitment to provide consumers across Northern California with access to high-quality, affordable care,” said Peter Anderson, senior vice president, Strategy and Business Development at Sutter Health. “The SignatureValue Alliance plan helps to deliver on that goal.”
