SCAN Health Plan President to Discuss Serving the “Dual-Eligible” Population at the AHIP National Conference in Washington, D.C.

LONG BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AHIP–Bill Roth, president of SCAN Health Plan, will be among the featured
speakers at America’s Health Insurance Plans’ (AHIP) National Conference
on Medicare, Medicaid and Duals, October 25-27, in Washington, D.C. Roth
will share a panel with three other senior level executives to discuss
how each organization has tailored its care model to effectively serve
those who qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid/Medi-Cal.

Termed “dual eligibles,” these members present health plans and policy
makers with unique challenges due to their wide range of care and
service needs. SCAN has a long history of serving duals and currently
offers a Special Needs Plan designed expressly for this population.
Among the unique value-added services these members receive through SCAN
is their own Personal Assistance Line (PAL) specialist, a service
representative specially trained and available to answer questions and
help members get the care and support they need, when they need it.

“Dual eligibles are among the most vulnerable of our fellow citizens and
historically among the highest utilizers of healthcare services,” says
Roth. “Over our 40 year history, SCAN has worked to build the programs
and expertise required to support the dually eligible and actively
promote a thoughtful public policy discussion to how to best address
their needs.”

Roth joined SCAN in 2011 as chief operating officer and was promoted to
president in 2015. In addition to his wide responsibilities at SCAN,
Roth brings to his AHIP presentation more than 20 years of managed care
experience, holding senior executive positions at CIGNA HealthCare in
Connecticut, Aetna, Blue Cross of California and WellPoint. Roth earned
both a Bachelor of Science and Master of Business Administration from
Indiana University.
