Letter from the CEO

DrBradleyGilbert

Welcome to Inland Empire Health Plan (IEHP). As one of the largest not-for-profit Medi-Cal and Medicare health plans in California, we are dedicated to our community – and our 1.2 million members who reside in Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

Since the inception of IEHP in September 1996, we have consistently focused on our mission: to organize and improve the delivery of quality, accessible and wellness based healthcare services for our community.

Our mission is supported by the dedication of our providers who play a key role in caring for our members. Through mutual respect and collaboration, we have, together, served more than 2.3 million people in the Inland Empire since 1996. Our close partnership will prove essential as we move into an unprecedented era in healthcare.

Today, more than 1 in every 4 residents in the Inland Empire is an IEHP member. We are rapidly growing as a result of the Healthcare Reform and potential participation in the California Coordinated Care Initiatives including Cal MediConnect, a program for people with Medicare and Medi-Cal.

This growth comes with a mix of challenges and opportunities, our members and their access to quality healthcare and behavioral health services (including Autism) will remain a primary focus for IEHP. To our community partners, we will prove ourselves as closer allies who embrace teamwork and innovative ideas. To our valued providers, we will continue to build on our collaborative efforts which fuel the success of IEHP.

Over the coming months and years, IEHP will be more focused on its mission than ever before. As the future unveils a transformed healthcare landscape we will pursue tomorrow with vision, courage and perseverance. We have just begun.

Sincerely,
