Can ionicModal display sub page?

I have a modal page using $ionicModal. The page is a simple list. One of the items in the list is a check box selection. Instead of creating the check box options on this page, I was hoping to navigate to a sub page. Am I correct to understand that I can’t have the user navigate to another state/page to pick from the check boxes? I.e. $ionicModal can just show itself and you can’t show anything else until its closed?
