Los Angeles, California (February 2, 2023) – Clever Care Health Plan, a leading provider of Medicare Advantage insurance plans, combines the best of Western, clinical-based medical practices with Eastern methodologies, is proud to announce the grand opening of its community center, inside Koreatown Plaza, the heart of Los Angeles’s Koreatown. The center is part of a rapidly growing network of Clever Care facilities that provide in-person, in-language guidance and resources to Medicare beneficiaries to navigate their healthcare ahead of the 2024 annual enrollment period.
The grand opening ceremony will be held on Thursday, February 2nd, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at 928 S Western Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90006 (Koreatown Plaza Unit 227).
“Being able to access Medicare-related information in-person had never been this easy for seniors around Koreatown,” said Myong Lee, CEO of Clever Care Health Plan. “The goal of our new community center in Koreatown Plaza is to create an easily-accessible, inviting and open environment where seniors and community members can participate in our culturally-sensitive programming and truly feel at home within their own community. Navigating healthcare or Medicare decisions can be challenging for many, especially if English is not their primary language. Our new Koreatown Plaza community center will bring valuable services to our Korean speaking seniors,” he added.
“In addition, we are excited to announce our new supplier, Korea Ginseng Corporation. Now our members can purchase the popular CheongKwanJang brand with their quarterly allowances” said Peter Winston, Senior Vice President of Clever Care Health Plan.
“CheongKwanJang is the number one ginseng brand worldwide with over 120 years of history. We are very excited to extend our products to Clever Care Health Plan’s members” said Heung Sil Lee, President of Korea Ginseng Corporation U.S office.
The Koreatown Plaza Clever Care community center will be staffed with bilingual, English, and Korean-speaking advisors that can assist with questions on healthcare options and Medicare-related issues. These services are offered free to seniors and other visitors, along with resources for mental health, food banks, and other community assistance programs through Clever Care partnerships with non-profit organizations. Additionally, visitors to the community center have access to classes and seminars on wellness topics such as meditation, yoga, tai chi, and healthy nutrition.
