CareMore Health will rebrand as Carelon Health effective Jan. 1, 2024.
Carelon is the health care services brand of the insurance company Elevance Health (NYSE: ELV), previously known as Anthem. CareMore, also an Elevance subsidiary, provides advanced primary care to more than 100,000 Medicare Advantage and Medicaid patients in nine states, as well as offering palliative care.
“For more than 30 years, CareMore has been providing patients with health care tailored to help them maintain a healthy and active lifestyle,” Cathy Campbell, president of CareMore Health, said in an announcement. “Our clinical team takes time to get to know and understand the physical, social and emotional issues that affect a person’s whole health and well-being. As Carelon Health, we will continue to ensure our patients receive the right care at the right time – in our care centers, virtually or at home – during the moments that matter most.”
The rebranding will begin this fall at 38 locations in Arizona, California, Iowa, Nevada, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Washington, D.C. The company also operates home-based services in five additional states.
The care centers offer same-day and walk-in appointments for most primary care services, wellness coaching and education as well as treatment for complex, chronic health conditions. Established in California in 1993, the company also offers programs to address social determinants of health.
“Our compassionate doctors and health professionals dedicate the time and resources to provide personalized care by removing barriers and making it easier for patients to navigate health on their terms,” Dr. Paul Mikulecky, chief medical officer at CareMore, said in a statement. “Through prevention, intervention, and focused care coordination, we help improve health outcomes and lower costs. It all results in healthier, happier patients.”
