However, SCAN has been providing similar senior sensitivity training to its employees for many years as a way to ensure that they better understand the needs and mindset of its more than 100,000 health plan members. The program also continues to be offered to SCAN board members, physician groups and to elementary school children to enhance their sensitivity in dealing with older adults.

For more than 30 years, SCAN Health Plan has been focusing on the unique needs of people with Medicare and today is the fourth-largest nonprofit Medicare Advantage Plan in the United States. The company currently serves nearly 110,000 members in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Ventura and K
