  1. Past


    We originated as a PPO Network in 1985, serving the area surrounding Seattle, and eventually expanding to serve all of Washington and the Northwestern United States. First Choice Health began offering health plan administration (HPA), medical management, and employee assistance services. We further strengthened our network offerings through expansion into Montana and Oregon.
