What makes UW Medicine ACN unique?
Our goal is to keep patients healthy by focusing on prevention: identifying and treating health issues early, before they become a bigger problem. Greater coordination of care between physicians and healthcare professionals results in the best outcomes for patients.
Cost savings to you include lower monthly health plan premiums. In addition, your out-of-pocket costs for visiting a primary care physician (PCP) and for generic prescription drugs will also be lower.
You can count on timely access to primary care providers and specialists.
