Date:1/29/2008

RALEIGH, N.C., Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Arcadian Health Plan, Inc., a leading provider of Medicare Advantage health plans for Medicare beneficiaries, has enhanced its benefits for 2008 and expanded into the state of North Carolina. This comes on the heels of successful rollouts in Oklahoma, Louisiana, Georgia, South Carolina and Maine.

Highlights of these plans include $0 premiums in most markets, free annual physicals and flu shots, dental benefits, and an ever-expanding provider and hospital network.

"We've been met with enthusiasm from the Medicare population," said Dr. John Austin, chairman of Arcadian Health Plan, Inc. "Medicare is in the midst of historic changes, and Arcadian Health Plan is dedicated to helping people understand their options. We think our growth is due in large part to this education."

Dr. Austin went on to say that Arcadian Health Plan is entering new markets in eastern North Carolina including the counties of Beaufort, Carteret, Chatham, Edgecombe, Greene, Jones, Lenoir, Onslow, Orange, Pamlico, Pender, Pitt, Wake, and Wayne. Arcadian Health Plan of North Carolina operates locally as Southeast Community Care.

"Arcadian Health Plan's goal has always been to choose mid-size to smaller markets to enter so that we're able to interact with members and health care providers on a personal level," said Garrison Rios, Chief Marketing Officer for Arcadian Health Plan. "We believe our growth is attributable to this commitment, and we look forward to taking this commitment into North Carolina."

When Congress modernized Medicare laws in 2003, the private sector was given a greater role in administering Medicare services.
