Premera and MultiCare to Offer Integrated Services in Pierce County

MultiCare and Premera are collaborating to introduce a new health plan product called Peak Care. Peak Care will provide access to the Tahoma provider network. Peak Care is for Pierce County-based employers who want a fully insured health plan. Starting this fall, employers can purchase Peak Care for plan effective dates of January 1, 2019, or later. Premera estimates that Peak Care could save employers as much as 15 percent off the cost of a standard preferred provider organization (PPO) plan, depending on plan design.
