CALIFORNIA - Dignity Health and Partnership HealthPlan (PHC) has reached an agreement on a new three-year contract.

The new agreement will allow PHC members to continue seeing Dignity primary care and specialty providers in Shasta, Siskiyou, and Yolo counties, as well as affiliated Dignity and Mercy hospitals, Partnership announced in a press release.

RELATED: Healthcare access cutback

PHC is the main local Medi-Cal administrator for low-income people. At the beginning of January, PHC members assigned to Dignity providers got a notice of the potential contract termination.

“We are pleased with this agreement, which will allow us to best serve our members in these communities,” said PHC CEO Elizabeth Gibboney. “Dignity has been a valuable partner in providing care to some of the most vulnerable populations in a historically underserved region, and we look forward to continuing that partnership.”

Mercy confirms the deal is being finalized and that it expects to be on the books by week’s end.
