Medica is the administrator for the medical plans offered by the University. The plans offer a similar set of benefits, but the amount you end up spending for medical care will be different depending on which plan you choose. When you make your decision, pay special attention to what you would pay for coverage rates, deductibles, copays, and coinsurance. Also check that your doctor is in the plan's network.
Additional Medical Benefits
Summary of Benefits
The 2016 UPlan Medical Summary of Benefits (pdf) provides a detailed description of your medical and pharmacy benefits, as well as any additional benefits that are part of your medical plan.
Understanding an Explanation of Benefits
After you've seen a doctor or other care provider, you will receive a document from Medica called an "Explanation of Benefits" (EOB). The EOB is a record of the services you or another family member received. An EOB is meant to help you understand your benefits and budget for your out-of-pocket expenses.
Member Guide to Medica
The Member Guide to Medica (pdf) explains some of your health care options and has important information about your rights and responsibilities as a consumer. It also tells where to find more information if you need it.
