We’re proud to tell you that Monarch HealthCare has joined the Optum family and that our name has changed to Optum.  

Just like Monarch HealthCare, Optum strives to make health care simpler and help people feel their best. Under Monarch HealthCare, we helped our partners advance medical excellence in the communities they serve.

As part of Optum, we’ll take the next step: We’ll work together to offer you the care you need at a cost you can afford.

You don’t need to do anything. You’ll get the same great care from your doctor, clinic, and our network of providers. We’ll still accept your current insurance and copays.

The Optum California family of medical groups serves over 1.5 million patients across Southern California. Today, we operate as independent medical groups. But we look forward to bringing our care teams and health services together as one Optum.

Get the right care at the right time

We've earned America's Physician Groups (APG) Standards of ExcellenceElite Honors. Again. And again. 

The APG is a leading national association. It helps physician groups improve the quality and value of the care they give to their patients.

Each year, APG conducts its Standard of Excellence® survey. Physician groups that make the list must meet strict quality and cost standards. One of the key standards involves making sure patients get the right care at the right time.

Monarch, now part of the Optum family, is honored to have been recognized as a top performing group every year since 2007. We work hard to outdo national quality standards and give you the care you need.
