Healthcare Finance | April 05, 2019

Sutter Health|Aetna has added Stanford Health Care to its network of providers. Sutter Health|Aetna is the joint venture launched last year between the Sacramento, California-based health system and the national insurer. It offers self-insured preferred provider organization health plans to businesses in the Northern California area. It has grown to about 50 plan sponsors across 15 counties. This represents another expanded partnership between a provider and payer, though this is in the commercial space. Other recent partnerships, such as the one announced between Duke Health and Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, have capitalized on the Medicare Advantage market.
