Prominence Health Plan was established in Reno, Nevada in 1993 as a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) and was originally known as Saint Mary’s Health Plans. In 2014, a subsidiary of Universal Health Services, Inc. (UHS) acquired the company and renamed it Prominence Health Plan. In addition to the HMO, Prominence Health Plan also offers point-of-service health plans, a preferred health insurance company that offers preferred provider organization (PPO) health plans, and CDS Group Health, a third-party administrator.
In addition, Prominence Health Plan owns the Preferred Health Care Network (PHCN), a local provider network. Prominence Health Plan’s HealthFirst HMO/POS is accredited by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), which involves a rigorous review of Prominence Health Plan consumer protection and quality improvement systems. Prominence Health Plan’s access to network providers includes 34 hospitals and over 3,500 providers statewide, in addition to providers outside of Nevada through network lease arrangements
