PROUD TO BE OFFERED IN COVERED CALIFORNIAIndividuals can purchase the same quality coverage they're accustomed to from Western Health Advantage in Covered California, this fall. Open enrollment begins October 2013 with coverage starting January 2014.
Created by Health Care Professionals
Western Health Advantage was created locally by UC Davis Health System, Dignity Health and NorthBay Healthcare System to provide an alternative to national HMOs.
Access to Quality Doctors and Hospitals
We believe a health plan should make people feel well cared for. That's why we give our members access to a community-based network of trusted hospitals, physicians and specialists.
Choose from over 2,800 primary and specialty care providers and 15 hospitals in Northern California.
Choices and Flexibility
All HMOs have you pick a primary care physician (PCP) from the groups in its network. The trouble starts when you need a referral to a specialist. You're usually restricted to a specialist who is in the same group as your PCP.
Our unique Advantage Referral program allows your doctor to refer you to almost any specialist within any of our medical groups. This gives you access to more than 2,200 specialty providers in Northern California.
We put the "Person" in Personal
You'll be supported by our highly-rated customer service. Yes, real people will be with you every step of the way, answering all your questions and taking care of your needs.
Don't take just our word for it. The California Office of the Patient Advocate releases an annual Health Care Quality Report Card, assessing California health plans for quality of services. At Western Health Advantage, we are proud of how our members rate our health plan.*
