Please note the benefit changes for 2021-22:
- Deductible: $450 for individuals; $1,350 for families
- Covered medical expenses incurred for the treatment of hypertension, diabetes, and pre/cervical cancer with network providers are not subject to the deductible, copay, or coinsurance.

- Fall 2021: August 1, 2021 - December 31, 2021

- There is a $450 per plan year deductible for some medical services provided outside of UHS. The plan year is from August 1 to July 31.
- If providers or facilities are used that are not part of in-network provider, claims will be paid at 50% of the non-network rate (customary and reasonable), which is often significantly lower than the in-network rate. For example, 90% coverage of the in-network rate is going to be less costly to the patient than 50% coverage of the non-network rate.
