Medical Insurance

Most regular employees may choose between three medical plans - Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plans administered by Regence BlueShield and Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plans administered by Kaiser Permanente.


Telehealth Available

Whether you are signed up with Regence or Kaiser, both carriers have you and your dependents covered for telehealth visits. A telehealth visit is quick and easy to schedule and will be conducted via phone or video without having to leave home. You have access to counseling services, doctors 24/7, and pediatricians are also available.

  • Avoid unnecessary exposure or exposing of illness
  • Privacy of your own home
  • More appointments available including weekends
  • Counselor availability so that you can see a board-certified psychiatrist
  • Access to licensed therapists to get the support you need
  • Schedule appointments for numerous medical conditions without having to go to the doctor’s office
  • Prescriptions can be filled as well.

Preventive Care

Preventive care and early detection are important for your long-term health. Refer to the Regence Preventive Care List or Kaiser Permanente Preventive Care List for Adults and children to review preventive services that are covered at 100% and are not subject to any deductible, when you use an in-network provider. Talk to your primary care physician to find out which screenings, tests, and vaccines are right for you, when you should get them, and how often.

Healthcare Premiums

The premium is the amount that you may be required to pay for your health insurance. Premium contributions are collected in advance and are deducted on a semi-monthly basis on the 22nd and 7th of each month.
