In February 2015, the Health Plans merged with Banner Health. As such, UAHP operates as one component of an integrated health care system that includes Banner University Medical Center Tucson Campus and South Campus as well as a comprehensive network of Banner Health primary care and specialty care providers. We also have a robust and diversified community provider network across all counties of operation. Our goal is to ensure that our members have access to care nearby and that primary care providers have a good selection of local providers with which to work and refer our members.
