Is Legacy covered by my health plan?
Most health plans require enrollees to use only those doctors and hospitals that are included in their networks, with a substantial patient out-of-pocket difference, or no benefits at all, if the provider is out of their network.
To receive treatment at a Legacy facility, you need to choose a health plan that includes Legacy Health in its list of providers.
Legacy is included in many insurance plans, including:
- First Choice Health
- First Health
- Great-West Healthcare
- Health Net
- Kaiser Permanente (available at Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center only)
- Managed Healthcare Northwest (MHN), Caremark
- Regence Anthem
- Regence BlueCross BlueShield of Oregon
- Regence MedAdvantage PPO
- Secure Horizons
This is only a partial list. If your current plan isn't listed here, check with your benefits manager to see if your plan allows you to use Legacy hospitals and services. If we're not part of your health plan, please ask your employer or health plan administrator to consider offering Legacy — your health care provider of choice.
Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, there are many insurance plans you might qualify for. As part of the Affordable Care Act, most people now have to have medical insurance. The good news is that insurance is now affordable, and you may be able to get tax credits for having it. You may also be able to get help paying for coverage.
Legacy has patient advocates who will help you understand your health insurance options and apply. All you need to do is set up an appointment, and a patient advocate will meet with you individually. This is a FREE service to you and your family. Enrollment takes about two hours.
Oregon and Washington insurance plans*
All Oregon and Washington insurance exchange plans cover essential health benefits. If you receive your medical care from Legacy, you may want to enroll in one of the plans that includes Legacy - in Oregon: Moda Health (formerly ODS), Oregon's Health CO-OP or PacificSource. In Washington: Kaiser (excluding primary care providers) and
Moda Health (formerly ODS). If you choose a different plan, you will need to go to another medical system that takes your new insurance.
*In-network providers can change on a insurance plan at any time. Please contact your insurance provider to see if Legacy is an in-network provider on your plan.
