SHARE NOW

For seniors in Plumas County, there’s a critical update for Medi-cal participants.

4Medi-Cal has switched providers from Anthem to Partnership. According to Plumas Public Health, Seniors can expect new Medi-Cal cards after the new year. However, the health agency is encouraging Seniors to get ahead of the transition and reduce issues with services, billing, or prescriptions by signing up and printing off new ID cards through the new Partnership Member Portal as soon as January 1.

The switch has been attributed to a shake-up in the state’s contracts with managed care providers; reported by the SF Chronicle, the change affects 1.2 million Medi-cal members across 21 counties.
