  • No coverage for out-of-network services, unless it is a life- or limb-threatening emergency.

  • No deductibles to meet. 

  • No out-of-network coverage. 

Summary of Health Plan Benefits: UK-EPO

The UK-EPO Option is very similar to an HMO in the way benefits are applied. If you choose the UK-EPO, you must receive treatment from an in-network provider. Only emergency services, or urgent services received while out of the service area, are covered when provided by out-of-network providers or facilities. When you use in-network providers, you will have a $20 copayment for primary care visits and a $30 copayment for specialist visits.

Prior authorization is required for the following services: inpatient hospital services; inpatient mental health, alcohol and/or chemical dependency services; outpatient mental health, alcohol and/or chemical dependency services; and skilled nursing facility services. Failure to obtain prior authorization will result in a 50% benefit penalty.
