Note: This email is for SEBB organizations in or near Chelan and Douglas counties, and is an update from the email we sent to you on August 16.

You may already be aware of this information, but with this week’s start of SEBB’s open enrollment, HCA wanted to make sure you knew that Premera Blue Cross and Confluence Health have reached a new multi-year agreement that allows individuals enrolled in Premera Blue Cross to retain in-network access at Confluence Health. The two entities had previously indicated their contract could end at the end of January 2022. 

This agreement also ensures uninterrupted in-network access of Confluence Health for Uniform Medical Plan (UMP) members, through the Blue Cross Blue Shield contract currently held by Premera Blue Cross.

What does this mean for my employees?

This means in-network coverage with Confluence Health will be ongoing for SEBB members enrolled in the Premera Blue Cross or UMP plans in North Central Washington.
