  • PowerPoint slides [PDF]
  • Local provider availability: More on UC Medical Plans [PDF]
    • Note for Medicare retirees in Davis:  Sutter primary care physicians in Davis/Sacramento are not currently accepting new Medicare patients. This means that UC High Option/UC Medicare PPO members who have not seen Sutter doctors before, and who want Sutter for primary care, may need to choose Sutter PCPs in other towns. Alternately, members of those plans could choose a non-Sutter doctor in Davis for primary care, but still access Sutter specialists. (Some Sutter primary care doctors in Davis/Sacramento are still taking new Health Net Seniority Plus patients.)
