Even though the County now offers a total of four medical plans, including Kern Legacy Health Plan "Newtork Plus," the County of Kern EPO (administered by Managed Care Systems), and Kaiser Permanente, the POS plan still holds the largest membership with more than 10,000 lives. Administration is provided by Zenith American Solutions and authorization services are through Clinix Healthcare. Effective January 1, 2016, the POS Plan now uses the Anthem Blue Cross Prudent Buyer PPO network.
