PrimeCare Medical Network to participate in Alignment Healthcare's Medicare Advantage Care Provider Network


Medicare Advantage plan participants in San Bernardino and Riverside counties to have access to PrimeCare Medical Network physicians and specialists Jan. 1, 2018


Ontario, CA, Dec. 4, 2017 - Alignment Healthcare has added PrimeCare Medical Network – comprising 14 PrimeCare independent practice associations (IPAs) including Empire Physicians Medical Group and Valley Physicians Network – to its Alignment Health Plan’s Medicare Advantage provider network.

PrimeCare maintains an expansive base of primary care physicians throughout the Inland Empire. This new relationship will give people enrolled in Alignment Health Plan’s Medicare Advantage access to more than 300 primary care physicians and 1,300 specialists in Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

“PrimeCare Medical Network is an important community partner and offers the people served by Alignment Healthcare greater choice and access to quality, cost-effective care,” said Dawn Maroney, chief growth and strategy officer of Alignment Healthcare. “We are grateful for the collaborative relationships we share with care providers like PrimeCare that are committed to improving the quality and cost of care.”

Alignment Health Plan, which offers Medicare Advantage plans in seven California counties, was awarded a 4.5-star rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for 2018. Alignment offers patients expert chronic disease management programs and enhanced customer support through its command center that monitors its plan participants’ health status so that medical intervention can be timely and appropriate.

“This new network relationship comes at a time when Medicare beneficiaries are evaluating their health plan choices during this year’s Medicare open enrollment period,” said Jamie Phillips, president of PrimeCare. “Our new partnership with Alignment Healthcare gives more seniors living in Riverside and San Bernardino greater access to quality, cost-effective care close to where they live.”

PrimeCare proudly supports hands-only CPR training!


PrimeCare and the American Heart Association are happy to report that over 5,000 students in the Riverside Unified School District were trained with hands-only CPR!

With the support of PrimeCare, the American Heart Association is creating a generation of lifesavers by making sure students learn CPR before they graduate. In less than the time it takes to watch a TV sitcom, we can give students the skills they need to help save someone's life with CPR. The CPR in Schools Training Kit empowers students to learn the core skills of CPR in under 20 minutes, and it teaches AED skills and choking relief. The easy-to-use kit is designed specifically for the needs of school educators. It's portable, allowing for convenient movement from classroom to classroom and easy storage. It's also resuable. The CPR in Schools Training Kit was developed by the American Heart Association and incorporates the very latest science. Teaching students CPR before they graduate would put thousands of qualified lifesavers in our community, year after year.

  • About 80% of cardiac arrests that occur outside a hospital happen at home.
  • About 89% of those victims don't survive because, often, people around them don't step in to perform CPR.
  • In September last year, Governor Brown passed a mandate that requires school districts to implement a health education course that includes CPR training.

Look for our ad in the Inland Empire Magazine this July highlighting this amazing initiative!
