PacificSource Health Plans Partners with Aetna Signature Administrators® to Improve Access to National In-network Care
(SPRINGFIELD, Ore.) March 20, 2023 — PacificSource Health Plans is pleased to announce a new business collaboration with Aetna Signature Administrators that will improve access to care for PacificSource members when traveling or residing outside of Oregon, Idaho, Washington, and Montana. Aetna’s preferred provider organization (PPO) network will give PacificSource members in-network access to more than 6,000 hospitals and 1.5 million participating physicians and ancillary providers. Aetna will replace First Health Network, PacificSource’s current national partner, on June 1, 2023.
Access to Aetna’s PPO network will be offered to PacificSource members covered on individual and family plans, employer group plans and student health plans. Services from Aetna PPO network providers, outside the PacificSource four-state area, will be paid as in-network. The new partnership does not include Medicare or Medicaid members.
“We are pleased to welcome Aetna as a trusted partner and have full confidence our members traveling or residing outside our four-state service area can get the care they need through their comprehensive network of providers,” said Peter McGarry, PacificSource vice president of provider network.
PacificSource in-network plan benefits remain the same for members using Aetna’s provider network outside of PacificSource’s four-state service areas of Oregon, Idaho, Washington, and Montana.
