Published: Mon Mar 12 2018

Brand New Day, a Medicare Advantage health plan that offers those eligible Medicare with several benefit options designed to meet their special needs, has opened a new office in Kern County to accommodate the growing number of new members. The new office is located at 5201 California Avenue Ste. 250 Bakersfield, CA 93309 and can be reached at 1-866-255-4795; and for those hearing impaired: 1-866-321-5955.

The program launched in Kern County in late 2017 and has since become one of Brand New Day’s fastest growing regions in the state. According to Executive Vice President Jay B. Davis, Brand New Day allows those eligible to gain access to programs and services beyond original Medicare. In fact, many Brand New Day plans are available at no cost premiums and copayments for primary care doctor visits. For qualifying beneficiaries, the plan covers unlimited transportation to and from medical appointments; vision, dental and acupuncture services; 24-hour/day nurse line; and health and life coaches.

Brand New Day is contracting with a number of primary care and specialty doctors as well as physician’s groups like QualCare IPA all located in Kern County.

"The residents of Kern County have enthusiastically embraced Brand New Day ever since we introduced the program here," said Davis. "Much of our success is due to our partnerships with some of the region’s most desirable medical groups, which allows members to select from a large network of physicians while enjoying additional benefits offered by Brand New Day."

Davis said the company representatives are on hand to help those on Medicare and their family members navigate the complex healthcare system so they can achieve optimal health. For more information about Brand New Day, call 1-866-255-4795; TTY: 1-866-321-5955 or visit
