What a Health System Offers You
Choosing care from a health system helps:
- Ensure the clinicians treating you – whether they are in a primary care provider’s office, a specialist’s office or a hospital – have shared access through electronic medical records to information about your most recent diagnosis, allergies and tests.
- Streamline your care to better manage chronic conditions and receive the best care possible.
MemorialCare is associated with many leading medical groups in Los Angeles and Orange counties.
Medicare Advantage Plans
If you are eligible for Medicare, you may want to consider a Medicare Advantage Plan that provides enhanced services over traditional Medicare and less out-of-pocket expense than Medicare supplement plans. Most Medicare Advantage plans offer:
- No monthly health plan premiums.
- Minimal or no co-pays for physician visits.
- No annual health plan deductibles.
- Hospitalization covered at a substantial savings.
- Enhanced prescription drug program included at no additional cost.
- Coverage for urgent and emergency care outside of the United States – very important if you like to travel abroad.
