Effective July 1, 2023, Optima Health Plan will assume agreements with Virginia Premier Providers. As of the merger effective date, Optima Health will assume all of Virginia Premier’s rights and obligations under the agreement. No action is necessary on your part as we are conducting business as usual, and providers would continue to serve Virginia Premier members now known as “Optima Health, Group Number: VP.”
Optima Health Plan, a Virginia non-profit corporation, shares the same values as Virginia Premier and merging with them will help solidify our efforts to ensure that we continue to offer exceptional care and service to our consumers, members, patients and communities. It also helps us to better anticipate and respond to changes in our industry and to identify opportunities for growth and innovation.
Virginia Premier is also in the process of notifying our impacted membership of this merger and for your convenience, listed below you will find a preview of the new Optima Health Product Member ID card. The new membership cards will be distributed in the coming weeks and will be effective on July 1, 2023.
We appreciate your assistance in serving our members and meeting their healthcare needs. If you have any questions regarding this notice, please contact your assigned Network Educator at 1-877-865-9075, option 2.
We are excited about this next step in our evolution for both our members and our providers. Additional details about the merger will be announced soon.
