* Network exclusive to Swedish/Providence. Virginia Mason is currently only contracted for hospital services. However, if the patient's PCP will initiate a referral and Navigate/Charter will approve, referrals are accepted for specialty care. Note: if the services are available within their Navigate/Charter network, referral requests will NOT be approved by the plans.

General Comments

* This program is geographically specific. For example: If a patient buys the coverage in California, they are only covered in California, if they buy it in Washington state, they are only covered in Washington state (unless emergency). They may only select a Virginia Mason PCP if they have the coverage in Washington state. If needing specialty care and coming from another state, they must have an approved referral.
