Agency Health Plan Reviews for 2017

Providence Health Savings Account Qualified Plan;  with the Providence HSA plan, members receive 100% in-network preventive care, but other care is subject to the deductible.  The annual deductible options are $2,800 and $6,000.  The family deductible is aggregate and 2x the individual deductible.  Members pay most of their up front non-preventive care costs from a tax free health savings account that they set up and fund with their own money.  There are no copays with an HSA.  This plan includes pediatric preventive dental and vision, and adult vision.  This is not a new program.  The high deductible plan reduces premium, and the savings account deposits are tax deductible as long as the money is used for qualified expenses.  This plan comes with the Providence Signature Network.  Read more about the HSA here.

Providence Health Plan Connect Plans; $2,500 or $7,150 deductible options.  The Connect Medical Home model of care provides substantial savings to the health plan, so the plan premium is lower.  Members choose a medical home from the Connect Network and a primary care provider.  Members receive referrals from primary care provider to see specialists.  This plan includes alternative care, prescription drug coverage, and pediatric preventive dental.

Employer programs update 2017

Small employers; 
small employers have between 1 and 50 employees.  Some Oregon group health plan rates have decreased for 2017.  
A typical group plan may include a basic base contributory bronze medical plan, buy-up options for those who need or want more coverage, some tax advantages and incentives for eligible employers.  Some employers are receiving the small business health care tax credit if they meet the qualifications and purchase a qualified group health plan.

The federal Small Health Options Plan (SHOP); this program at is not available in Oregon at this time.  SHOP is a web based health insurance solution for small employers.  The small employer health insurance tax credit seems to still be working form some employers.  Oregon employers who want a tax credit will need to have a qualified carrier and product and then request the plan certification from the carrier or Oregon Health Insurance Exchange for your tax advisor. The small employer health insurance tax credit is expected to have a 24 month maximum.  We have small employer activity in the Washington Healthplanfinder. 

Large Employers; an applicable large employer is an employer with more than 50 employees.  The Affordable Care Act required employers with more than 50 employees to provide minimum essential health coverage to all employees working 30 or more hours per week.  Large employer group health insurance rates have been stable.
