Date:8/18/2009

MARINA DEL REY, Calif., Aug. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Heritage Provider Network and CEO Dr. Richard Merkin were featured in a Fox National News segment discussing their successful HMO model of managed, coordinated, patient centric, cost effective healthcare that seniors are happy with and works.

Fox News correspondent Anita Vogel and her camera crew went to Palm Springs, California to interview seniors enrolled in Desert Oasis Healthcare (an HMO medical group in the Heritage Provider Network) to learn more about their trip to Washington, DC in late July meeting with members of the Senate and House, relating their stories of fighting cancer and now fighting to protect the healthcare plan that kept them alive. They also took with them petitions signed by over 10,000 seniors enrolled with Desert Oasis solidifying and urging Congress to keep the current plan intact.

Maurice Engleman is 82 years old and told Vogel how he beat a diagnosis of tongue cancer last year. "I owe my life to the robust, assertive care I received from Desert Oasis and I wanted members of Congress to know firsthand about the success of this important healthcare model. I would be dead without it and dead if I had my old Blue Cross Plan."

Patricia Long agrees. At 70, she has fought cancer for the last 13 years, her latest bout losing over 70% of her liver, "I keep on fighting because my Intense Case Managers have encouraged me not to give up. I have doctors making house calls ensuring I get healthy, keeping me out of the hospital and emergency rooms. By staying healthy, I am saving money I can use in other areas of my life." Both Engleman and Long are enrolled in Medicare Advantage that offers coordinated care that targets keeping patients healthy, with high level, quality, cost effective healthcare.

"Our medical groups and IPAs include 25 facilities in California (including Desert Oasis) and one based
