2017 WA Premera Contract

From November 1, 2016 to January 31, 2017, enrollment for the Washington Health Benefits Exchange will be open. Enrolled patients will have access to Providence doctors, clinics and hospitals and will continue to receive expert care and medical information.

Providence Health & Services and its partners, Swedish, PacMed and Kadlec, have signed a three-year contract in Premera Blue Cross’ employer-sponsored health benefits plan. This agreement only refers to Premera’s Heritage Plus plan, and does not include Premera’s Heritage Prime plan, Premera’s individual networks, Heritage Signature, or LifeWise Connect. Providence will continue to participate in the Medicare Advantage plans so these patients may continue seeing their same provider.
