Can I see a Virginia Mason primary care provider with this insurance plan?

No

Does this plan require pre-approval to see a specialist?

Yes

General Comments

The VA typically requires all services to be provided within VA medical centers. However, at times they will refer to non-VA specialists. This most often occurs when they do not have the needed specialty, or, they have overflow issues. VA personnel MUST have VA authorization for all services within Virginia Mason.

Note: If you have the VA and Medicare, you may choose to use either your VA benefits or your Medicare benefits.
