(San Bernardino, CA) LaSalle Medical Associates and HealthNet have forged an alliance that has brought more than 50,000 new patients to LaSalle’s Independent Practice Association (IPA).
These new patients use medical clinics, primarily in Tulare and Kings counties, that belong to the LaSalle IPA. This increase brings the total served and/or cared
for by LaSalle to more than 245,000 patients in the seven California counties it operates.
“Earning the trust of HealthNet is a testament to the hard work and professionalism of our dedicated team of experts and physicians,” stated Dr. Albert Arteaga, MD, LaSalle founder and president, “I’m confident our success and reputation with providers such as Anthem Blue Cross over the years was instrumental in HealthNet selecting our IPA to service their 50,000 members in the Central Valley.”
“We’re confident HealthNet Physicians in Tulare and Kings counties will enjoy a smooth transition and the convenience of one resource for all patient eligibility, authorizations, referrals, audits and billing processing,” Arteaga continued, “We look forward to providing the same great level of support and care that earned us this contract and in so doing, enable network physicians and their staffs’ to provide even greater attention to their patients’ health care needs.”
LaSalle Medical Associates has also been caring for more than 28,000 patients in their four award-winning Neighborhood Medical Centers located in San Bernardino County since 1986.
“Operating our own clinics for so many years has uniquely positioned us front and center to the multitude of challenges medical practices face every day, and why our IPA has earned its outstanding reputation of providing solutions and results for our IPA clients,” explained Carl Maier, Executive Vice President of Operations.
