    General Comments

    Effective January 1, 2022, Virginia Mason contracted for Regence Individual and Family metallic plans (Platinum Gold, Silver and Bronze products). All Regence Individual and Family medical plans are Exclusive Provider Organization's (EPO), which offer no coverage outside the network (with exception of emergency care). To avoid surprise bills, patients must be very careful to always see an in-network provider, which now includes VMFH. 

    If there is a need to see a specialist not offered in their insurance provider network, patients would need Regence authorization to utilize a specialist outside of their network.
