The Pioneer Medical and Dental plans are administered by Regence BlueCross Blue Shield and provide more flexibility and freedom than a traditional Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plan. This plan does have a network of providers but no primary care physician is required. You are allowed to self-refer to any preferred provider (even a specialist) and remain in-network. Out-of-network care is covered but will cost more.

With Kaiser as your health insurance plan your coverage includes medical services and providers within the Kaiser Permanente network. You will choose a primary care physician who will be responsible for your health care, making referrals to specialists and approving additional medical treatments. There is a significant reduction in out-of-pocket costs as you will pay a flat co-payment for the medical services received. Care received from a physician outside the network is not covered unless you are traveling or in the case of an emergency.
