California: OptumCare Medical Group and OptumCare networks

OptumCare Medical Group based in Southern California, was originally formed in 2012 through the merger of two well-established and respected primary care provider groups — Centers for Family Medicine and Premier Physicians Medical Group. Today, OptumCare Medical Group is a family of 22 medical offices — stretching from Long Beach and into Orange County and North San Diego County — with more than 100 combined physicians and advanced practice professionals (Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants). OptumCare Medical Group providers have a longstanding history of providing efficient and quality health care services to commercial HMO patients, Medicare Advantage, PPO and fee-for-service patients. Its unique care model stresses proactive, preventive care and covers the entire spectrum of care with our IPA affiliates that may be needed from the medical office, to the hospital and skilled nursing facility, and into palliative care and hospice. This continuum of care allows for better communication and a better quality of care.

AppleCare Medical Group was formed in Lynwood, California, in 1996. The vision was simple: to make quality care available locally to their community. Over the last 17 years, the multispecialty medical group of independent practices has expanded into new communities, contracted with more hospitals and health plans, and added physicians. Today, AppleCare Medical Group is comprised of hundreds of board-certified private-practice, independent physicians. Collectively, our physicians have been serving the southeast area of Los Angeles and northern Orange County for decades, providing medical expertise and passion to improving the health of our communities.

Monarch HealthCare’s independent, private-practice physicians are part of a coordinated network that works together to promote excellence in patient care.
