You’ll get the most value from your plan when you see a tier 1 provider, but you’re welcome to see a tier 2 provider if you don’t mind paying a little more for some services.
The same is true when selecting a Primary Care Provider (PCP). If your plan requires you to select a Primary Care Provider (PCP), you’re welcome to choose from either tier, but you’ll get the most value by choosing a tier 1 PCP.
PacificSource Health Plans has an open network to providers who meet our minimum standards for credentialing. On an annual basis, PacificSource Health Plans reviews Primary care type providers, many specialties including Obstetrics, Dermatology, Allergy and Asthma, Orthopedic, Oncology, Psychiatry and Psychology against our established standards. Additional specialists are included if they meet our credentialing requirements. Minimum standards of availability measurements include provider to patient ratios, which vary based on county and population. Rural, Urban and Suburban counties are reviewed with separate standards based on the county classification. Members who reside in rural areas will likely have more miles to drive compared to members who reside in urban and suburban areas.
PacificSource Health plans extends a contract to any willing eligible provider; if network adequacy is already met, then we may choose to contract exclusively with a certain provider group for services (examples may include hospital, DME, and Home IV services).
PacificSource Health plans does not currently use quality measures to determine our network, however, providers and facilities are required to meet NCQA minimum credentialing standards. PacificSource Health plans may share quality measures with our providers and collectively establish quality measures and/or goals.
