All Cascade Select plans (Gold, Silver, Bronze) cover the same list of medical services. The cost of deductibles, copays, and coinsurance for each service varies depending on the plan.
CHNW Cascade Select plans are Exclusive Provider Organization (EPO) plans, which means that we cover services only when you receive them from Network Providers, with limited exceptions such as emergency care.

Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), most health plans must cover certain preventive services, such as vaccinations and screenings, with no out-of-pocket costs to you (i.e., $0 copay). For more information, see the List of Covered Preventive Services (healthcare.gov) and coverage information from the Office of the Insurance Commissioner.

If your regular doctor doesn’t provide virtual visits, or if their office is closed, don’t worry. As a CHNW member, you have access to 24/7 care through CHPW Virtual Care.
With this benefit, you can visit with a doctor by phone or video at any time, day or night, without having to leave your home. See the Virtual Care page for details.
This benefit provides coverage for prescription drugs dispensed by a participating pharmacy (a pharmacy in our network). Your prescriptions are covered under our plan only if they are filled at a participating pharmacy or through our mail-order pharmacy service.
Your Prescription Drugs benefit has four tiers: Generic, Preferred Brand, Non-Preferred Brand, and Specialty. You pay a cost-share of either a copay or coinsurance for each separate new prescription or refill.
