Alignment Health Plan has been around for a number of years, but is relatively new to Nevada. The Medicare Advantage Plan provider just opened up shop in the Silver State in 2020.

It didn’t take long for the company to discover Mesquite and the Mesquite Senior Games. Alignment Health Plan recently committed to a sponsorship of the Mesquite Senior Games through the end of the year … and most likely much longer.

“I’m personally looking forward to looking at it as long term relationship,” said Rick Scroggs, Nevada Director of Sales for Alignment Health Plan. “But I hope it’s on an annual basis.”

To show his support, Scroggs was in attendance at the Mesquite Senior Games bowling tournament in August. He plans on having a regular Alignment presence at Senior Games events throughout the season.

“It’s more than just a sponsorship to us,” he said. “It’s a chance for us to engage in the community.”

For Mesquite Senior Games, it’s an opportunity to help introduce a beneficial business to the Mesquite senior community. Alignment offers a number of Medicare options for area seniors for service in both Nevada and nearby Utah.

“Alignment brings some wonderful, much needed medicare options to Mesquite seniors,” said Amy Bradshaw, director of the Mesquite Senior Games. “This is really great news for our community. “The synergy between our two organizations is spot on and will produce some excellent opportunities for our area seniors to stay active and healthy.”

Scroggs said he was approached by two representatives of two Mesquite companies — Jim Belnap of Medicare and Healthcare Advisors and Andrew Bird of Financial Concepts — about working with Mesquite Senior Games.

“We rely on our broker community, teams of agents,” Scroggs said. “We have several there in Mesquite. Jim Belnap and Andrew Bird brought this opportunity to us, saying they were needing sponsorship. It really hit home with us. They’re all about active lifestyle, senior living.”

Alignment has a partnership with P3 Medical, which recently opened an office in Mesquite as well.

Working together with the P3 Medical Group, including a new clinic in Mesquite, Medicare-eligible seniors enrolled with Alignment Health Plan in Clark County have access to P3’s network of providers and services.

Alignment Health Plan currently serves seniors in Clark County, and in 2022, is expanding into both Nye and Washoe counties where Medicare-eligible residents in the area will also gain access to Alignment’s HMO plan options during Medicare’s annual enrollment period, which begins Oct. 15, 2021.
