Health plans to help keep employees happy, healthy, and more productive


As recent studies have found, an employee’s well-being when they aren’t working has a direct correlation to their performance when they are.

We offer employers affordable health insurance options, local provider networks, friendly customer service that’s handled by real people not phone trees, and some of the best wellness programs in the industry — to keep employees happy, healthy, and productive.

What’s New for Employers

EFT Payment Option Makes Premium Payment Easier

Thanks to our EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer) payment option for groups, paying your PacificSource health plan premium can be easier. 

  • EFT means one less check to process, as well as easier reconciliation. 
  • The regularly scheduled payments are confirmed by email
  • No postage and reduced administrative costs add up to significant savings.

It’s easy to sign up, too. Contact your Membership Representative to get started. Find the EFT form (Group Authorization Agreement for Recurring Electronic Fund Transfers) on Employers > Forms and Materials, under Manage Your Group Coverage.

PacificSource and Legacy Health – A Partnership to Benefit You and Your Employees

We’re proud to announce that PacificSource Health Plans and Legacy Health are pursuing a partnership to bring together complementary capabilities. Our shared vision of healthcare focuses on improving the experience of care, reducing healthcare costs, and improving the health of our communities.

Ultimately, this partnership was driven by both organizations’ commitment to serve our customers.

Important Things to Know about this Partnership

  • No change to our name, brand, 2016 plans, processes, or your PacificSource representatives. If you’re in the process of renewing or setting up a PacificSource plan, be assured that the process will remain on track.
  • For your employees, nothing has changed. Members will continue to receive the same outstanding benefits and unmatched customer service that have been hallmarks of PacificSource since 1933.
  • As we move forward, you’ll see improvements and enhancements. This includes increased access to care for your employees, the creation of new and unique health plan offerings, and industry-leading stability in a volatile health insurance market.
  • We will maintain our provider partnerships. We will continue to work with our existing provider partners throughout Oregon, Idaho, and Montana. We will also continue to pursue future relationships with other healthcare providers.

Tobacco Cessation Outreach Calls

We all know it’s difficult to quit tobacco, but it's easier when there is someone who can help. The Quit For Life® Program has helped thousands of people, including PacificSource members, take control of their lives and their health by quitting tobacco. Beginning soon, program representatives will place personal calls to members who have indicated on their health assessment through CaféWell that they use tobacco. Representatives will tell these members about the program and invite them to participate. 

Read more about Quit For Life on our Tobacco Cessation page.

The Quit For Life Program is brought to you by the American Cancer Society® and Alere Wellbeing.
