Inova® is Joining Our Network
We are pleased to announce that effective September 1, 2022, Optima Health includes all Inova® Health System hospitals, facilities, physician practices, and providers as in-network for our commercial group and Individual & Family Plan members.
Inova, along with our existing hospitals and providers including UVA Prince William and Haymarket Medical Centers; Sentara Northern Virginia and RMH Medical Centers; Virginia, Spotsylvania, and HCA Reston and Stonesprings Hospital Centers; Fauquier Health; and Mary Washington and Stafford Hospitals, will bring comprehensive in-network coverage in Northern Virginia for this population of our membership.
As a result, Optima Health is expanding its commercial group and individual plan offerings into Northern Virginia. Northern Virginians already have access to our Medicare and Medicaid health plans and will now also be able to enroll with Optima Health through their employers or the Individual Marketplace.
We are eager to bring our trusted commercial health plans to Virginia’s most populous region, which contains nearly a third of the entire state population1 and a third of the statewide employment total2. By working with Inova, we can better serve the diverse health needs of this population and strengthen our commitment to make our commercial business the health plan of choice for all Virginians.
Inova’s goals and mission align with those of Optima Health, and together we can focus on developing healthcare programs and innovations to improve health every day.
Benefits of the Northern Virginia Expansion
- more sales opportunities throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia
- closes the health plan gap between corporate clients in Northern Virginia and their affiliate offices in other parts of the state
- allows us to expand our operations and network so that we can offer truly local service statewide
We will launch a comprehensive media campaign to support sales endeavors as we move into the Northern Virginia region.
In addition to our sales expansion into Northern Virginia, individual plans will be offered throughout all of Virginia3 beginning January 1, 2023.
We will share more information about this exciting expansion and its valuable impact to our brokers in the upcoming months. If you have any questions, please contact your Optima Health representative.
3 OptimaFit will be available throughout Virginia except Frederick County, Winchester City, Giles County, Montgomery County, Pulaski County, and Radford City
