New health plan: UK Saver
High-deductible health plan with a health savings account

For the first time, we’re offering a high-deductible health insurance plan combined with a health savings account. This type of insurance plan puts you at risk for covering some of your health care costs out of pocket, but it provides a way to save for health care costs this year and in the future.

Lower costs to use UK HealthCare on UK-PPO plan

New for this year, many services are now available with just a co-pay, and not co-insurance, if you’re on the UK-PPO health insurance plan and use UK HealthCare providers.

Previously, you paid a percentage of the costs for many health care services on the UK-PPO plan. For example, an outpatient surgery procedure hospital stay with UK HealthCare would cost you 10 percent of the overall charges. Now, you’ll pay a flat co-pay of $100.
