Open Enrollment gives you the opportunity to consider new health care options. You may choose a new health plan or choose a new doctor or both. Decisions about your health plan and your doctor are connected and important for your health. Dignity Health can help you during Open Enrollment so you have the information you need to make the choices best suited to your health care needs.
Open Enrollment takes place at different times depending upon how you purchase your health plan:
Even if you are happy with the plan you have, it’s a good idea to take a look at the other choices available. A different plan may be a better match for your health care needs and may even save you money. Spending a little time reviewing the benefits of the plans offered is a great investment toward having coverage that will meet your needs for the coming year. You will also want to check whether your current doctor is in the health plan’s network of providers, which includes doctors, hospitals and other types of facilities, like surgery centers. This information is available on the health plan’s website. If you currently see a Pacific Central Coast Health Centers doctor and want to be able to receive services at other Dignity Health facilities on the Central Coast, here is a list of the plans to consider:
If you are enrolling in an HMO plan, you will be asked to include your doctor’s name and provider number on your application. Pacific Central Coast Health Centers physicians are part of Physicians Choice IPA. You may also be asked to include the IPA information on your application.
