RENO — Saint Mary’s Health Plans (SMHP) has announced a new partnership with First Health, which will serve as the statewide health plans’ national PPO network for use outside Nevada. The network is now being offered to all new group PPO plans and, throughout the next year, SMHP will be available to all insured groups at the time of renewal.

“Being part of a national PPO network strengthens our product offerings and expands health care access to our members,” said Don Kowitz, president and CEO at Saint Mary’s Health Plans. “Our partnership with First Health provides access to high-quality physicians and medical facilities across the country and solidifies Saint Mary’s Health Plans’ commitment to providing our members with exceptional health care benefits, locally and nationally.”

First Health, a wholly owned subsidiary of Coventry Health Care, offers member access to an expansive provider list that includes more than 5,000 hospitals, 550,000 physicians and 64,000 ancillary providers. In addition to out-of-state benefits for PPO members, the new partnership offers all HMO, POS and PPO members access to First Health’s emergency travel network.
