Premier Radiology and Borgess Health Alliance accept two types of Medicare Advantage plans; contracted plans and deemed (PFFS*) plans. The contracted plans require that the hospital or physician group have a contract with them to qualify them as "in-network." They usually don't pay for "out-of-network" services unless it is a true emergency. Deemed plans have the option of going to any facility or physician that participates with original Medicare as long as that facility/physician chooses to see them. Borgess Health Alliance chooses to see all PFFS plans. The PFFS plans listed below are the ones that we commonly see in the Kalamazoo area. The contracted plans listed below are the ones that Borgess Health and Premier Radiology are contracted with.
