The name “CareMore” was chosen because it embodies a philosophy that inspires proactive care and a caring touch—qualities that continue to drive our success.
CareMore’s foundation was established over 20 years ago as an innovative medical group that reorganized the healthcare delivery system in order to proactively manage health and improve quality in the high-risk Medicare population. Throughout its history, CareMore has led the industry in clinical and quality outcomes, and continues to innovate with the aim of maintaining that industry leadership.
Sheldon Zinberg and physicians operating 28 medical offices in Southern California launch CareMore Medical Group.
CareMore restructured as a Medicare Advantage program and focus turns to elderly patient care.
The Medicare Advantage program was deliberately chosen as a strategic mechanism to fund our program because it allows us to construct financial incentives that are aligned with patient outcomes.
