Independence at Home, a SCAN community program, provides elders and their caregivers with much-needed resources and assistance, regardless of whether or not they are members.
- Alameda and San Mateo are two more California counties that SCAN is expanding into, giving its overall reach to more than five million potential clients in 17 cities in three states. SCAN Health Plan (Nevada) and SCAN Desert Health Plan (Arizona) will offer plans in Clark County, Nevada, as well as Maricopa, Pima, and Pinal counties in Arizona, in the next year or so.
- Growth and diversification strategies at SCAN rely heavily on SCAN’s expansion and diversification efforts. Not-for-profit health plan Welcome Health has launched several new business ventures, including Healthcare in Action, a medical group that will provide healthcare and other services to those experiencing homelessness, and Welcome Health, a new geriatric primary care medical group.

Selby noted that SCAN will conduct robust outreach to more than five million potential customers in its California, Arizona and Nevada service areas, and will provide communications in five different languages including English, Spanish, Korean and Chinese.
