The University Health Plan (UHP) is a self-insured health and medical care cost coverage plan sponsored by Saint Louis University. Coverage is available to eligible Saint Louis University Undergraduate, Graduate, Professional and Medical Students, Graduate Assistants and Medical Residents. Dependent coverage for eligible participants is also available. There are no waiting periods in the Plan and the Plan does not have any pre-existing condition exclusions.
Medical Benefits: The UHP partners with Coventry Health Care of Missouri to administer the medical benefits of the plan. Coventry's responsibilities include insurance identification card production, medical coverage verification, claims processing and prior-authorization/pre-certification. Coventry Member Services may be reached at (800) 775-3540.
Prescription Drug Benefits: The UHP partners with Catamaran to administer the prescription drug benefits of the plan. The UHP prescription drug benefits do not include a mail order option. Catamaran responsibilities include pharmacy identification card production. Catamaran Member Services may be reached at (800) 207-2568.
Enrollment/Changes to Plan Elections: Eligible participants and dependents may enroll or request changes to plan elections (i.e. drop/waive coverage) within 31 days of admission to a University program, during a program's orientation, or during Open Enrollment and Special Enrollment Periods. Special Enrollment Periods are provided when a qualifying event occurs. If enrollment or plan election changes are not completed within 31 days of the qualifying event, the enrollment or plan election changes may not be made until the next Open Enrollment Period.
NOTE: In the beginning of the 2014-2015 academic year, the UHP will be transitioning administration of the plan's medical and prescription drug benefits to Aetna Student Health. Aetna Student Health will be assuming responsibility for identification card production, coverage verification, claims processing and prior-authorizations. This administrative transition will occur as members re-enroll within the 2014-2015 academic year.
