Additional Medical Insurance Plans Accepted At Santa Monica Primary Care

“We are excited to be able to welcome even more patients into our practice!”

At Santa Monica Primary Care, we believe that the best primary care on the Westside should be accessible to as many people as possible. That’s why we’re contracted with so many different medical insurance plans, including Medicare and most major private medical insurance PPO plans. In an era where physicians typically seek to go ‘out of network’, how often do you hear that an office will take new insurance plans?

Effective January 1st, 2015, Santa Monica Primary Care will begin accepting:

  • All Blue Shield Individual and Family PPO plans.
  • All Blue Shield Individual and Family EPO plans.
  • All Blue Shield Individual and Family PPO and EPO plans purchased through a private broker.
  • All Blue Shield Individual and Family PPO and EPO plans purchased through the Covered California website.

We will also continue to accept all Blue Shield Group PPO plans as well.

At Santa Monica Primary Care you will find a personalized, friendly and comfortable environment in contrast to the institutional care that may not be as personal. Our office is pleasantly appointed, well-staffed, and offers compassionate and academically trained providers. We offer our patients an extensive array of medical services right here in our office, from blood draws to skin procedures to cardiac stress testing. We believe that you should have the ability to receive comprehensive medical care without having to travel to multiple offices.

For appointments, insurance plans, services, or information about our staff, please check out our website at or give us a call at the office at 310-828-4411. Welcome to our practice.
