A deal has been reached which will allow people who buy health insurance from one of the state’s largest insurers through Covered California to use their coverage with one of Santa Barbara County’s largest medical providers.
Sansum Clinic reached an agreement with Anthem Blue Cross. As a result of the agreement, it’s expected Sansum will be added to the list of covered providers by Anthem in the next few weeks. People can start signing up for the coverage now.
However, Sansum still doesn’t have an agreement with another major insurer, Blue Shield.
Sansum represents 23 medical clinics, which serve more than 60,000 people a month.
