Medical Plan Details and Rates

Medical Plan: Tier Clarification
The Saint Louis University employee medical plan is a three tier network:

  1. Tier 1 is for services received by SLUCare physicians only. Please note that SLUCare Physicians may practice in SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital and Clinics. However, SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital and Clinics are not owned by the University and the Tier 1 level of benefits do not apply to hospital services received at these facilities. As a result, physician care received by a SLUCare physician is the only benefit available under the Tier 1 level of benefits. Hospital services received at SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital and Clinics will be processed under Tier 2, as UnitedHealthcare contracted facilities.
  2. Tier 2 is for services received by UnitedHealthcare (UHC) contracted physicians, hospitals and ancillary services, such as SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital and Clinics, LabCorp, and hospital based facility services and laboratories.
  3. Tier 3 is for services received at non-UHC contracted physicians, hospitals and ancillary services and therefore out-of-network.
