  • SignatureValue Alliance gives California employers additional quality, cost-effective health care coverage options for their employees
  • New plan portfolio features high-performance networks that deliver evidence-based, cost-efficient care

UnitedHealthcare is offering "SignatureValue Alliance" in California, a new health benefits plan featuring high-performance care provider networks committed to delivering effective, evidence-based and cost-efficient care.

The SignatureValue Alliance plan enables employers and plan participants 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 network includes six large physician groups in Southern California and parts of Northern California that include 90 hospitals and about 26,000 physicians and specialists. Participating Alliance physician groups include: HealthCare Partners Medical Group, Heritage Provider Network, Monarch HealthCare Medical Group, PrimeCare Medical Group, Santé Community Physicians, and Scripps Health.

"UnitedHealthcare 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 David Anderson, CEO, UnitedHealthcare of Southern California. "Plan participants enjoy comprehensive health benefits coverage and access to a wide, local care provider network of quality doctors and hospitals."

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 provides California employers with a new health plan option that is helping provide high-quality, cost-effective care," said Alissa Viggianelli, vice president, Marrs Maddocks & Associates, a Carlsbad-based health benefits broker. "This type of high-performance care provider network is both innovative and an important step in helping California employers continue to offer quality health benefits to their employees."
