People are asking for a better healthcare system. This means access to great doctors who deliver high quality care, better coordination among providers, and a way to manage the rising cost of care. Together with Intel, Arizona Care Network is creating A Better State of Care.
Arizona Care Network (ACN) is a group of doctors and other healthcare providers who work together to improve the health of our members and reduce costs by actively coordinating care for our patients. We commit to:
Improve the health of our patients with quality care in the best care setting for their situation
Enhance the patient experience because consumers have many choices and we must earn their business
Manage the rising cost of care by working as a team, communicating effectively, and reducing costly duplication of services
Increase provider satisfaction because our doctors and other care givers need to be healthy themselves to deliver good healthcare
This is our Quadruple Aim and everything we do is focused on improving in each of these four areas.
Connected Care with ACN is based on this integrated, high-performing network of providers who are held accountable by Intel to make improvements to the quality of care, access to care, and member experience over time.
Connected Care is available in Oregon, Arizona, New Mexico, and Northern California and provides quality healthcare to more than 38,000 employees and their enrolled dependents. This represents 32% of Intel’s U.S. employees and their families with 94% satisfaction.
Much like Anthem and Cigna, extensive coverage and care is available locally and across the country. We know this is important when you want peace of mind while traveling or have dependents living away from home.
Here are some of the top benefits:
Access to more than 5,500 primary care, pediatric and specialty care providers through ACN focused on keeping you and your family healthy and happy
High loyalty and cost effectiveness with more than 94% of enrolled employees sticking with Connected Care
High-touch, concierge-style services, and care coordination translates into less stress and time spent navigating your healthcare experience
Lower deductibles and out-of-pocket maximums compared to other plans

Improved management of chronic conditions and depression with certain medications covered at no cost
Better control of chronic conditions for hypertension and diabetes, with a positive trend of 87% for diabetics and 78% for hypertensive members

Supporting Your Health
Connected Care ACN offers a new way to manage your health and supports keeping you well rather than just treating you when you’re ill. With ACN, in-network providers communicate with you and with each other. They work together to maximize your health and minimize your out-of-pocket costs.
This model of care is useful for any patient but it’s especially helpful to those with chronic or complex health conditions like diabetes, obesity, COPD, depression, cancer or even one-time issues that require surgery and/or hospitalization.
If you or a dependent are managing a chronic or complex illness, ACN is here to help. Our Care Coordination team works closely with your doctors and you to help manage your condition with the goal to reduce the likelihood of hospitalization and help you achieve your best health. We can also make sure you’re not alone when making important or difficult decisions about care. It’s like having a personal health concierge.
