    Changes to Premera's Heritage Prime Network affects WEA Select Health Plans

    On November 1, 2016, the WEA Select EasyChoice B plan will change from the Premera Heritage network to the Heritage Prime Network. Heritage Prime includes major medical facilities and providers across Washington that work closely with Premera to manage healthcare costs and quality.

    To help ensure Heritage Prime continues to offer the best combination of choice and value, there will be a change starting in the New Year. This will affect WEA Select EasyChoice B and Basic Plans.

    Some doctors, hospitals and clinics in the Swedish, Providence, and CHI Franciscan Health systems will no longer be in-network for Heritage Prime as of January 1, 2017. WEA enrollees who choose to get medical care from these groups could have no coverage or have higher out-of-pocket costs.
