Canopy Health offers a refreshingly clear, human alternative to traditional healthcare for Bay Area employers and their employees. If you’re dissatisfied with your current health plan, now is the time to learn more about Canopy Health.
An Alliance of Exceptional Healthcare Providers
Canopy Health is a physician and hospital-owned healthcare network that is committed to clinical excellence, patient-focused care, and transparency. Members have access to nearly 5,000 physicians, 18 hospitals, and numerous other healthcare facilities. Canopy Health’s alliance includes some of the most respected medical groups and hospitals in the Bay Area — including John Muir Health, UCSF Health, Hill Physicians Medical Group, Santa Clara County IPA, and Meritage Medical Network.
Our providers and facilities receive both national and regional recognition for their quality and advanced treatment options. For example, 50% of the hospitals listed in U.S. News & World Report’s top 10 Bay Area hospitals are affiliated with Canopy Health. The top three hospitals are all members of our alliance (UCSF Medical Center, John Muir Health-Walnut Creek, and John Muir Health-Concord).
Access to Healthcare Throughout the Bay Area
We understand that many Bay Area residents live a commuter lifestyle. You might live, work, and play in multiple cities and counties. For this reason, Canopy Health’s alliance is spread across the Bay Area, covering eight counties and most of our region’s major metropolitan areas. And even though Canopy Health is an HMO, our members are not restricted to a single medical network but instead have access to specialists from five medical groups.
Currently, our network extends into the following counties:
- Contra Costa
- San Francisco
- San Mateo
- Santa Clara
We’re proud to offer our members remarkable access to care throughout the Bay Area.
Coordinated Care Can Help Improve Your Health and Cut Your Out-of-Pocket Expenses
A primary care physician (PCP) coordinates all our members’ medical care in the Canopy Health alliance. While some patients think coordinated care is a hassle, it’s actually in your best interest. Studies suggest that coordinated or managed care helps reduce costs and improve health outcomes by:
- Focusing on preventive care that can help reduce your need for expensive emergency treatment
- Reducing the amount of healthcare waste, such as duplicative procedures
- Improving communication between providers, leading to faster and more accurate diagnoses
- Increasing a physician’s accountability for high-quality care

A Commitment to Transparency
Almost 36% of Americans have inadequate healthcare literacy and do not understand how our health system works. As a nation, our poor healthcare literacy costs us an estimated $106 billion to $238 billion annually, due to inefficiencies, poor health plan selections, and delayed medical treatment.
At Canopy Health, we are trying to improve Bay Area healthcare literacy with a refreshingly transparent approach to care. We want to empower our members, giving them streamlined care and better decision-making tools. This includes providing our members with a clear explanation of their out-of-pocket costs at every step of their healthcare journey.
