Choosing Your Medical Coverage
In this time of healthcare reform, the health plan choice you make will be more important than ever.
WITH ALL THE CHANGES IN HEALTH CARE, IT’S EASY TO GET CONFUSED. But choosing the right health care providers for you and your family has never been more important. and can impact the doctors or hospitals you’re able to use.
Within our community, there are federally funded navigators and/or certified application counselors (CACs) who can help you understand your choices of health plans (Providence can provide you with a list of local navigators/CACs upon your request).
Whether you’re enrolled in a Medicare plan, or get insurance through your employer, the choices you make during open enrollment can impact the costs you pay, the services you receive and the doctors or hospitals you’re able to use.
At Providence, we can help you understand your choices. Our strong network of six hospitals, more than 40 clinics and more than 3600 doctors covering the South Bay, Westside and the Santa Clarita and San Fernando Valleys is among the largest in the Greater Los Angeles Area. And Providence has been recognized for quality time and time again by national ratings and accreditation organizations. We’re contracted with most health plans, including Medicare and Medicare Advantage plans, and with many medical groups, some of which are more closely aligned with Providence hospitals and services and some that are contracted with Providence but may have contracts, as well, with other healthcare organizations.
