Health Plans - Overview
The University of Kentucky offers a wide variety of health plan choices, ranging from more cost-effective HMO which offers quality care exclusively through UK HealthCare facilities and physicians to plans which offer a broader provider network.
Because choosing the right health plan for you and your family can be challenging, the overview below has been created to help you identify which health plan best suits your individual needs. The major differences between the University health plans have been highlighted, allowing you to accurately compare each plan.
Note: Bariatric surgery may be covered under the UK-PPO and UK-EPO plans. Coverage follows Humana's guidelines. UK-HMO and UK-RHP do not cover bariatric surgery.
