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.
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.
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.
