In 2018, Independence announced a new provider partnership with Dedicated, a subsidiary of ChenMed — a leading primary care provider offering personalized and affordable services that improve health for low-income seniors. Through the provider partnership Dedicated opened four new centers in Olney, North Philadelphia, Mayfair, and West Philadelphia.
