Sutter Health Plus Delivers Quality Care in 15 NorCal Counties

If you’re an employer based in Northern California – or you have employees in the Bay Area, Sacramento, or other parts of the region – Sutter Health Plus is an employee benefits option you may want to consider. Sutter Health Plus expanded its service into a 15th county in early 2018 and now offers members access to more than 30 hospitals and campuses. The Sutter Health Plus network also includes dozens of health care centers, urgent care centers, and other medical facilities as well as more than 7,000 health care professionals.

When you offer Sutter Health Plus through the CaliforniaChoice multi-carrier, employee-choice exchange, your employees also have access to five additional health plan options in Northern California. (There are a total of eight options across the state.) CaliforniaChoice makes it easy for everyone in your group to find a plan that fits his or her individual or family health care needs.


A Long Health Care History

While the Sutter Health Plus health plan was launched in 2014, the history of Sutter Health dates back more than a century. The organization started out as a loosely knit community of independent medical providers, but today it is a Sacramento-based health care leader committed to serving the needs of nearly 80,000 members.
