IRVINE, Calif. (June 8, 2021) – Pinnacle Claims Management, Inc., part of the Western Growers Family of Companies (WGFC), has announced it will facilitate patient care as a managing services organization at the Cedar Health and Wellness Center located in Oxnard, California. This continued venture in the health care delivery of Pinnacle further enhances its patient-centered mission to serve both its members in the agricultural community, as well as its non-agricultural clients.
“We’re excited to have this opportunity to enhance our personal connections with our clients and members,” said David Zanze, president of Pinnacle Claims Management. “Although we serve multiple industries, we are providing a specific solution in Oxnard for the agricultural community which will enable us to react quickly to any changes we see in both the agriculture and health care industries.”
As a managing services organization, Pinnacle will provide the necessary administrative infrastructure, scale and technology at the Oxnard clinic and to select providers in California in order for its partners to function successfully in their relationships with contracted payers and regulators. Pinnacle’s ultimate goal is to provide the highest quality of care at an affordable price and to alleviate the burden of health care administration and compliance on its physician partners, allowing them to focus on patient care.
This initiative is a key milestone for the organization and reinforces its commitment as a leader in the health care industry. Pinnacle was established more than 20 years ago and has since provided a full suite of comprehensive health benefits services to employers. These services include third-party administration, pharmacy benefit management, reinsurance, e-payment solutions, and health management and wellness. As part of the WGFC, Pinnacle also serves the needs of Western Growers members with health administration services for the association’s health plan.
