DMHC approval of Canopy Health's expansion formalizes its connection with the South Bay and reaffirms its commitment to increased healthcare access for its members. The newest additions to the Canopy Health alliance offer its members access to physicians throughout Santa Clara and San Mateo counties where they can receive high-quality care in the communities where they live and work.

Canopy Health's new network partners include:

"We are extremely excited about Canopy Health's recent growth. Receiving approval from the DMHC for this latest expansion extends our reach throughout the Bay Area and allows us to provide more members with even better care from some of the most respected medical groups and hospitals in the state of California," said Joel Criste, Canopy Health CEO. "More choice means more competition, which results in improved care systems and better patient outcomes overall."

This excitement is echoed by other members of Canopy Health's leadership team, including Denise Vance-Rodrigues, Director of Business Development.

"We are thrilled to add these prestigious medical groups and hospitals to the Canopy Health alliance," commented Vance-Rodrigues. "Growth is an integral part of our mission and helps us reach more families and individuals who have been searching for real quality alternatives to outdated healthcare models."

Canopy Health offers an innovative alternative for employers who are looking for new options beyond traditional PPOs and HMOs. Employees access Canopy Health after enrolling in one of its carrier partners' health plans ? including Western Health Advantage, United HealthCare's Signature Value Advantage plan, and Health Net's SmartCare plan. Consumers may then select a primary care physician from within Canopy Health's alliance and benefit from coordinated care, simplified referrals, and also may seek needed treatment with any specialist within Canopy Health's robust Bay Area network.
