Why choose Moda Health plans?

What health plans cover

Your way to better health

Health plans make it easier to get well sooner and stay healthy longer. That’s partly because they cover part of the costs of the care you receive.

That might include a doctor visit, hospital stay, preventive services, prescriptions drugs, mental health treatment or even physical therapy.

Many plans also come with extras, like free health coaching, fitness tips and a nurse advice line. For example, Moda Health plans include all of these resources, plus lots more. Members can access them by logging in to myModa from their desktop or mobile device.

What plans cover

When you buy a health plan, the coverage company, like Moda Health, pays part of your medical costs if you get sick or hurt. Some plans cover nearly all of your care up to a certain dollar amount. Other plans kick in only after you meet your deductible.

Most Moda Health plans include free preventive care. That covers women’s annual exams, well-baby care, routine physicals, immunizations and more. Benefit amounts vary for other types of care and procedures. And, after you meet your out of pocket maximum, care is covered at 100 percent, up to what your plan allows.

You are responsible for paying some costs as well, such as:

  • Premium – Your monthly cost for your plan.
  • Deductible – The amount you pay before the plan starts to cover most services beyond preventive care.
  • Copayment (copay) – A set dollar amount you pay for a service, like a doctor’s appointment.
  • Coinsurance – The percentage of a medical bill you pay, usually after you meet your deductible. You’ll pay either coinsurance or a copay for a service, but not both at the same time.
  • Out-of-pocket maximum – The total amount you could pay for covered services each year. After reaching your out-of-pocket maximum, plans pay 100 percent for the rest of your eligible healthcare expenses, up to what your plan allows.


How Health Care Reform affects you

How will your health insurance change?

You’ve probably heard the news. The health insurance industry is changing. Those changes are all part of “Health Care Reform.” You may wonder how it affects you. It’s different for everyone.

Whatever your situation, health reform brings new rights and protections. Those include more choice and control over your health coverage.

Where to find your health coverage

If you get health benefits through your job, your health plan may change. Just check with your group administrator to learn more. If you have your own individual coverage, you may need to re-enroll. Or, you can buy a new health plan. Explore Moda Health plans to get started.

For those who don’t have health insurance, you’ll need to follow a new federal law, which requires everyone have health coverage. Never fear — Moda Health can make that part easy.

What you need to know about the new healthcare law

  • The Affordable Care Act is a federal law designed to make it easier for you to get medical care. If you don’t already have health insurance, you’ll probably need to buy it starting in 2014 or face a fine. You can enroll in a new individual and family plan starting Oct. 1, 2013.
  • If you do need to buy health coverage and live in Oregon, Alaska or Washington, explore Moda Health plans here. You can also shop for plans on the health insurance marketplace.
  • You may be able to get help paying for your health insurance. Learn about qualifying for the federal tax credit. If you do qualify for a tax credit and want to use it, you must apply for your plan on the marketplace.


Special enrollment

How do you qualify?

Certain life events might qualify you for special enrollment. This means you can enroll for a health plan outside of the open enrollment period. For example, having a baby or moving to a new state could make you or those you cover eligible.

If you enrolled through Washington Healthplanfinder and have had issues with your 2014 health plan, you may be able to enroll in one of our 2014 plans. This temporary special enrollment period runs Aug. 27, 2014, through Nov. 14, 2014, in Washington.

Applying is easy

If you are a current member and think you qualify for regular special enrollment, please contact us. Just call toll-free at 877-605-3229 or email

New to Moda Health? Explore our plans here and see if you qualify for special enrollment.

Special enrollment state guidelines

Each state treats special enrollment differently. Here are general guidelines for Oregon, Alaska and Washington. If you have experienced one of these qualifying events in the last 60 days, you may be eligible:

In Oregon:
  • You have gained a dependent or become a dependent through marriage, domestic partnership, birth, adoption, foster adoption, or placement for adoption
  • You have moved to a new service area
  • You or your dependent lost healthcare coverage due to one of these reasons:
    • Termination of employment
    • Divorce or end of domestic partnership
    • Over-aged dependents
    • Expiration of COBRA
    • Loss of eligibility for Medicaid or CHIP
    • QHP decertification
    • QHP enrollment or disenrollment due to HHS error
    • QHP material violation
    • Other loss of eligibility
  • Your income level changed and affects your ability to qualify for a health coverage tax credit or changes the amount of that tax credit
  • If you are a member of a federally recognized Indian tribe, you may enroll or change plans once a month throughout the year. Visit for a definition and full list of federally recognized tribes. To learn more about benefits available to American Indians, visit


Health terms glossary

Healthcare lingo explained

Words about health coverage can be confusing. To make it easier for you, we put together this cheat sheet. After all, how can you expect to find your way to better health if the signs aren't clear? But watch out – the more you learn, the closer you get to being a health smarty pants, like us.

Accident benefit
Your coverage for care when you have an accident. You may get better benefits than for regular care. For example, your deductible might be waived for treatment related to that accident.
Affordable Care Act (ACA)

Extras to help you stay healthy. Be Better tools come with every medical plan and are available through myModa. Examples include eDoc, a way to access licensed health specialists; Registered Nurse Advice Line, free phone support for health situations; health coaching services; and online tools to check drugs costs, review claims and find care.
