Western Health Advantage (WHA) will offer a variety of on- and off-exchange HMO plans to individuals and families in the North Bay and Sacramento regions for 2018. Many of their plans are offered on-exchange through Covered California and are eligible for the monthly tax credit subsidy. For 2018 UC Davis doctors and hospitals will no longer be in-network with the WHA IFP plans.
