MemorialCare extends ACO to Boeing employees

Fountain Valley, Calif.-based MemorialCare Health System is teaming up with the Boeing Company to offer a customized health plan for the aerospace company's employees and dependents in Long Beach, South Bay and Orange County.

Boeing carefully selected MemorialCare as its partner in what it calls its "Preferred Partnership." Through this agreement, the health system's accountable care organization — MemorialCare Health Alliance ACO — will be added to Boeing's employee health plan options during open enrollment this fall. MemorialCare's value-based approach to healthcare was integral to Boeing's decision to partner, according to the health system.

"MemorialCare and Boeing aspire to deliver a healthcare experience as well-engineered and trustworthy as the aerospace products designed and built by Boeing employees," MemorialCare Health System President and CEO Barry Arbuckle, PhD, said in a statement. "Every major initiative MemorialCare pursues is thoughtfully executed to prepare for transformative, value-based healthcare products for employers and health plans like the Boeing partnership."

The new option for Boeing employees will include benefits such as reduced paycheck deductions for healthcare coverage, no copayments for in-network primary care visits, complete coverage for generic prescriptions and the ability to choose in-network specialists without a referral, among others. Services will begin Jan. 1, 2017.
