United Healthcare (UHC) is the exclusive third-party administrator of medical plan benefits for Saint Louis University employees.
Vitality Wellness Plan - Saint Louis University is partnering with The Vitality Group to offer its medical plan participants the opportunity to preserve or improve their health by evaluating their lifestyle choices. This program offers many incentives such as improved health/wellness, rewards and a reduction in your medical premium! Find out more at the Vitality Wellness Plan link
Participation in a United Healthcare benefit will reduce your taxable income. Since this is a pre-tax benefit, your income is reduced by the above medical premiums prior to social security (FICA), Federal, State, and City taxes being assessed.

Medical Plan: Tier 1 SLUCare Clarification
As you know, the Saint Louis University employee medical plan is a three tier network. The first in-network tier is for services received by SLUCare physicians, the second in-network tier is for services received by UnitedHealthcare (UHC) contracted physicians, hospitals and ancillary services, and the third tier is for services received at non-UHC contracted physicians, hospitals and ancillary services and therefore out-of-network.
To further clarify, tier 1 is for services received from SLUCare physicians only. Because Saint Louis University Hospital is not owned by the University, but rather Tenet HealthSystems, the tier 1 level of benefits do not apply to hospital services received at Saint Louis University Hospital. 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 Saint Louis University Hospital will be processed under tier 2, as a UnitedHealthcare contracted hospital.
