Manatt Health partner Paul Carr-Rollitt led a team representing Canopy Health—a joint venture between UCSF Health, John Muir Health and several San Francisco Bay Area IPAs that operates a network of 19 hospitals and nearly 5,000 physicians—in a series of transactions with UnitedHealthcare to launch co-branded HMO, EPO and Medicare Advantage health plans offered by UnitedHealthcare through the Canopy Health alliance provider network. One of the new plans, the California Doctors Plan, will save customers 25% on premiums and provide access to quality, affordable, patient-focused health care for people with employer-sponsored health coverage in nine Bay Area counties.
The collaboration with UnitedHealthcare includes mutual investments and strategic and care management/member service initiatives, in addition to the co-branded products, and represents an unprecedented payor-provider strategic relationship. In addition to the California Doctors Plan, and as part of their aggressive multi-year collaboration plan, Canopy Health and UnitedHealthcare are working to establish a robust data and analytics infrastructure necessary to support advanced population health and value-based care initiatives.
The Manatt team working with Carr-Rollitt and Canopy Health to realize the new collaboration included corporate and finance associate Nioura Ghazni, digital and technology partner Brian Kelly, and Manatt Health partner Steve Chiu.
