Universal Care/Brand New Day has been in operation since 1985 and understands the importance of helping its members through the complex healthcare system.

Brand New Day has developed a number of unique products and programs to allow you to better address your client’s healthcare needs. Brand New Day has developed a number of benefit plans and specialized programs, allowing your clients to choose a program that meets their needs. The Plan has programs for individuals needing a standard Medicare program, special programs for individuals with both Medicare and Medi-Cal (Dual Special Needs Plan or D-SNP) and specialized programs for individuals with diagnoses of Diabetes, Dementia, Major Depression, Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, and Paranoid Disorder (Chronic Special Needs Plan or C-SNP). The plan is licensed to service members who live in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Kern, and Kings Counties.
Brand New Day’s 3 Chronic Special Needs Plans and the Dual Special Needs Plans allow you to enroll Medicare beneficiaries year round, not just during the open enrollment period.
The Specialized Plan for Diabetes includes special support programs such as a two way diabetic meter, which allows members access to diabetic trained staff 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to assist with the needs of members. The Dementia program includes programs to slow the progression of the disease and support the family and/or caregivers. The program for the Chronically Mentally Ill allows the member to be assigned to a care team, which includes a Primary Care Physician, Psychiatrist, a behavioral health case manager, and, if necessary, a medical case manager. Each member has access to a day treatment center. The member has direct access to all of these services. Each member has either a recovery plan or a maintenance plan.
