Scott and White Health Plan Acquires FirstCare Health Plans

Thursday, January 3, 2019

We are pleased to announce that, effective January 1, 2019, Scott and White Health Plan, part of Baylor Scott & White Health, has acquired FirstCare Health Plans.
This acquisition will allow these two provider-owned health plans to come together to create a more comprehensive and sustainable insurer with a driving focus on enhancing the customer experience through advanced technology.
The organizations are now beginning the important work of transitioning into one, first-rate organization to provide our members, providers, agents and employees with a best-in-class experience. They are excited to learn from each other and grow together over the coming weeks and months—all to better serve you and your patients.
Collectively, the plans cover nearly 400,000 members. Once finalized, the acquisition will mean for those members an expanded network of providers in the communities the health plans serve.
“Both of our teams bring incredible expertise and passion to the work we do every day. We are excited to learn from each other and grow together over the coming months to increase access to the services Texans need,” said Jeff Ingrum, President and CEO of Scott and White Health Plan.
IMPORTANT:  We do not expect you or your FirstCare patients to experience any immediate changes to FirstCare’s coverage and benefits.
