PacificSource Health Plans Celebrates 10 Years In Montana
(Helena, Montana) April 16, 2022— PacificSource Health Plans is proud to announce it has reached its tenth anniversary of providing health plans in Montana. Originally founded in Oregon in 1933, PacificSource expanded across the Northwest throughout the decades and in 2012 began selling individual plans statewide in Montana. PacificSource currently serves 46,500 Montanans with individual, small and large group, ASO and Medicare Advantage health plans, and is contracted with more than 90% of providers in the state.
Since 2012, PacificSource has provided access to healthcare to a total of 311,460 Montanans and directly supported the community with $2.7 million in the form of grants, volunteer hours, and other forms of giving.
“Whether it’s through employment, benefits, new job creation, or supporting local companies, we’re proud of the social and economic impact we’ve had over the last decade on our local communities here in Montana,” said Erik Wood, PacificSource Vice President and Montana Regional Director. “Montana has been my home for 20 years now, and it means so much to me to have local staff in local offices here in our beautiful state, ready to help our fellow Montanans get the care they need.”
“As PacificSource has grown over the years, it’s always been a critical part of our mission to give back to the communities we serve, and I am pleased to report that PacificSource has spent the last decade adding more than $33 million to Montana’s local economy,” said Ken Provencher, president and CEO of PacificSource. “Most importantly, we want to thank our valued members and the provider community for supporting our first ten years in the state. We look forward to continuing to serve them in the years ahead.”
