Sutter Health Plus HMO plan expands into five Bay Area counties

Sutter Health Plus, the HMO health plan of Sacramento-based Sutter Health, announced this week that it is offering products to five counties in the Bay Area.

The expansion adds Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties to the HMO’s service area.

The announcement comes following approval from the state Department of Managed Health Care.

Sutter Health Plus launched in the greater Sacramento area and Central Valley in January 2014. It added Sonoma County in March.
