Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center offers their employees the choice of Premera Blue Cross or Kaiser Permanente Health Plan of Washington as health plans.
Paper copies of the below documents are available upon request by calling Benefits at 206.667.4100.
The Premera Blue Cross Plans use a network of health care providers.
You can see any licensed provider; however, these plans pay a higher level of benefits when you use network providers. The benefits covered by Plan A and Plan B are identical; it is the network of providers which differs.
Plan A uses the Heritage network which includes over 39,000 providers and facilities and offers the widest choice of providers of the two plans.
Plan B uses the Heritage Prime network which includes over 36,000 providers and facilities but some local provider medical groups are excluded.
Kaiser Permanente HMO Core Plan offers integrated medical, vision, pharmacy benefits and care coordinated through your Kaiser Core network providers.
Within the network, your benefits are provided or coordinated by your network primary care physician and you pay only a small copay for services you receive. Outside the network, your benefits are limited to emergency coverage only.
Kaiser members are able to be seen for certain cancer treatment services at Fred Hutch facilities (formerly Seattle Cancer Care Alliance)
