Premera and Seattle Children’s Hospital are pleased to announce an agreement that provides expanded access to care at Children’s for Premera members on individual and small group metallic health plans both inside and outside the Exchange. The agreement brings Children’s Hospital and the Children’s University Medical Group into our Heritage Signature network beginning September 1. The change will also apply to Heritage Prime, the network that serves employers with 51 or more employees.
We’re very happy to be able to expand access to care at Children’s for our members on these plans without raising rates for our customers. Premera will not change currently-filed rates for individual and small group customers in 2014 and 2015.
This news further enhances our individual and small group metallic network, providing our members even more choice and flexibility in choosing a healthcare provider.
Members can find information about which doctors and hospitals are covered by their plan using our online “Find a Doctor” tool. Children’s physicians and associated providers will soon be added to this tool.
