2022 Provider Directory guidance
One of the toughest part of evaluating insurance plans is understanding the provider network being offered and how to find those 'In Network' providers for your plan. I will hopefully demystify this a little on this web page. I'll share a little information first for each company relation to the Individual Health Plans (Not Medicare Advantage).
COMPANIES ADDRESSED BY NAME:

Providence Individual Plans
UNDERSTAND THE "MEDICAL HOME" REQUIREMENT:
When you enroll in a Providence Plan, you are required to select a Medical Home Primary Care Clinic in the first month of coverage. So you are not selecting a primary care doctor, rather you are selecting a 'Medical Home Clinic' where you will receive Primary Care. If you want to see someone outside of your Medical Home clinic, you need to ask for a referral.
UNDERSTAND THE 2 PROVIDER NETWORKS--CONNECT AND CHOICE NETWORK
The Providence plans in the Portland area work with either the larger Choice Network, or the smaller Connect network. Some providers only accept the Choice plan, so do check your doctors to see if they accept the Connect network before you select the plan. Click below to search for Providence Providers
