ABC7 SoCal Spotlight: Alignment Healthcare – KABC

By 2030, one of every five Americans will be over the age of 65, and the subject of how we and our parents stay healthy takes greater focus.

Data shows that more than 90 percent of older adults have at least one chronic disease like heart disease, cancer or diabetes, and 77 percent have at least two. SoCal Spotlight host Karl Schmid sat down with Dr. Arta Bakshandeh, senior medical advisor from Alignment Healthcare, and Kristina Simonds, vice president of sales for Alignment Healthcare, to discuss options for healthy aging and Medicare open enrollment, and how Alignment Healthcare can be there to help.

“Alignment Healthcare has really built our model around the aging population and specifically the Medicare population and seniors,” Bakshandeh said.

Alignment Healthcare, a home-grown Southern Californian provider, is dedicated to improving the health of Medicare beneficiaries and seniors by providing better care and better health at lower costs. With their headquarters in Orange, Alignment Healthcare offers Medicare-approved HMO and HMO special needs plans to residents living in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Santa Clara, San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties.

“We needed to create a solution,” Bakshandeh said.

Everything Alignment Healthcare does is focused on the unique needs of the aging population.

“Now is the time where most Medicare beneficiaries can actually shop around and choose a health plan,” Simonds said. “If somebody is interested in learning more about who Alignment Healthcare is and our product through Alignment health plan, we have licensed agents who can actually come to a home appointment and go over and share our offerings.”

Medicare’s annual open enrollment period runs from October 15 though December 7. This is the only time of the year that most Medicare beneficiaries can make changes to their health plans. After December 7, Medicare beneficiaries must meet special requirements in order to make changes to their health plans.

Additionally, Alignment Healthcare will be hosting more than 300 educational events across the region of the next two months. To find an event near you or schedule a meeting, go to www.alignmenthealthplan.com or call (888) 979-2247.
