We’re not your typical HMO

Open enrollment is the time for selecting your health coverage. As you consider the best health plan for you (and your family), choose one that provides access to quality and affordable care designed to keep your family and budget healthy and happy. Consider the health plan that helps you stay healthy, and that's Western Health Advantage.

We’re flexible when you need it most

When you need a doctor or specialist, you’ve got choices available from multiple medical groups for your care. With our Advantage Referral program, you also have the choice to see any participating specialist from these medical groups.

  • Mercy Medical Group
  • Woodland Clinic
  • Hill Physicians
  • NorthBay Healthcare
  • Providence Medical Network (formerly St. Joseph Health Medical Network)
  • Meritage Medical Network
We’ve expanded how you get access to care.

Choose from a network of award-winning clinical providers and hospitals, as well as mental health and alternative medicine. And, if you need faster access to care and assistance, we’ve got virtual urgent care available 24/7 along with Assist America when you are traveling. We are pleased to offer you an affordable health plan with a quality network and the flexibility you need.
