"[The senior events are a] Great place to meet people my age, and the ladies that run the place are very kind."

Johnny Barry Victorville, CA

"Sneha has been a God send for us. She was able to work with us with Chuck's diet as well as deal with lowering his A1c. 15.5 to 6.1. Amazing. We have totally put our trust in her ability to manage my husband’s care not only with his diabetes but to alert us of any issues that could potentially be an issue with his health. To be totally honest I believe that I would be a widow if it wasn't for her care. Thank you Sneha. We love you!!"

Chuck Ruh Apple Valley, CA

"As a Heritage member who has used the Resort for several years now, I have found that there is a good selection of classes and meetings to meet the needs of most seniors. The classes are given by very good instructors and materials for crafts are provided as needed. There are even books to take out and a food pantry as needed. Keep up the good work Heritage and thank you for the time and consideration you put in for us seniors. "

David Miller Victorville, CA

I give her an A+ for such wonderful care and her assistant Natalie is such a big part of that as well. Sneha really cares and I am so appreciative of her hard work."

FAQs

Heritage has its own Urgent Care Plus high acuity urgent care facility with services including on-site Labs, x-ray, wound care and infusion services. Heritage Medical Group is contracted with four High Desert urgent care facilities and is contracted with hospitals in the High Desert and Southern California.
With an average medical group, obtaining a referral can often take weeks! We've developed a system to speed up the referral process and get you seen by a doctor as fast as possible. Heritage's fast track referrals can be completed in hours - not weeks!
Because Heritage is part of the Heritage Provider Network - one of Southern California’s largest medical groups - our members have access to over 200 local specialists throughout Southern California.
Heritage accepts most health plans. Contact our member services to see if we are contracted with your health plan. 1(800) 655-9999
Heritage has many benefits and resources that other medical groups in our area do not have. These benefits include fast track referrals, free fitness, senior activities and more. Heritage also has an Urgent Care facility for members with near-emergency-room levels of care (known as high acuity care), capable of handling even serious injuries.
Navigating through the healthcare system can be very difficult for even the most informed individuals. Coordinated care is a way that a medical group assists you in finding the right care by the right doctor. Your coordinated care team can help you track a myriad of appointments, insurance coverage, and generally any services you might need to ensure your health and safety according to your doctor's recommendations.
Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plans: Comprehensive coordinated care. A health maintenance organization (HMO) contracts with health care professionals and facilities to create a “provider network.” If you choose HMO insurance, you’ll typically pay a small co-payment if you visit a physician or hospital within the plan network. HMO insurance often features lower premiums and co-pays than other plans. Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plans: Self coordinated care. A preferred provider organization (PPO) also enters into contractual agreements with health care providers and creates a “provider network.” But unlike HMOs, PPO health insurance will cover some - but not all - of the cost of care administered by out-of-network providers, and patients take on more responsibility to coordinate their care.
Health plans contract with groups of doctors to provide health care. These groups of doctors are called medical groups. Medical groups can range from small practices with several doctors to very large organizations with hundreds of doctors. The difference between a medical group and a health plan sometimes isn’t clear. The medical group’s job is to care for patients - this work is done by the doctors, nurses, therapists and other professionals in the medical group. The health plan is responsible for seeing that its members receive care easily by contracting with enough medical groups and their doctors in a local area so it is convenient for members to find nearby care.
