“Since the start of the pandemic, we have been proactively checking in our seniors, offering added day-to-day support, such as delivering meals, access to transportation to grocery stores or helping them schedule vaccination appointments,” said Dr. Arta Bakshandeh, chief medical information officer, Alignment Healthcare. “We also hosted a series of virtual town halls to answer member questions, and share vital information related to COVID-19. To date, 80-90 percent of our members have been vaccinated with at least the first dose.”

In 2021, Alignment also launched a virtual-first health plan to enable seniors to seek safe and convenient care during the pandemic.
