Premera and Providence Working Together in Eastern Washington
December 2, 2013 1 Comment
Premera and Providence value our relationship. We work together on many important initiatives to improve the quality and affordability of care in Spokane and throughout the Pacific Northwest, including working closely together on Providence’s medical homes and Premera’s new Medicare Advantage program.
The vast majority of our members’ plans include all Providence providers in their network. Sacred Heart Medical Center & Children’s Hospital, Holy Family Hospital and the 500+ Providence Medical Group providers in Spokane are in-network for most of our members including:
- Employer groups with 51 or more employees
- Association health plans
- Grandfathered Individual plans, and
- Medicare Advantage plans
Our new metallic plans, which will be available to individual and small group customers for 2014, do have a slightly different network which does not include all Providence doctors and hospitals. We know that people value the relationship they have with their doctor.
Together, Providence and Premera will continue working to ensure that patients of Providence and members of Premera have the access they desire.
If a Providence healthcare provider or hospital is important to you and your family’s care, please contact our customer service team using the number on the back of your ID card.
You can also see all the doctors and hospitals that are in network for our 2014 plans in your area using our Find a Doctor tool and selecting the Heritage Signature network.
