Hometown Health’s new individual and family plans are available to residents of Carson, Churchill, Douglas, Lyon, Storey and Washoe counties and include four Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) and two Health Savings Account (HSA) plans. Benefits include preventive services and physician office visits, diagnostic services and lab work, hospitalization and prescription drug plans. Hometown Health members also receive access to Renown Health, northern Nevada’s largest integrated health network.
