UPlan Summary of Benefits Now Available

For a routine office visit or prescription, knowing the cost of your copays may be all you need to know about the University's UPlan program. Sometimes though, you may need information about your health benefits that is more detailed. In that case, you can refer to the Summary of Benefits online.

Want to know if something is covered? Browse the Benefit Features Chart to find your answer. If it's not there, go to the Exclusions section to find out why. Unsure of the meaning of a term, like biologics? Look it up in the Definitions section and then learn more in the Pharmacy Benefits section.

The Summary of Benefits is your complete reference book for the University of Minnesota UPlan. Look at the summaries for the UPlan Medical Program or the UPlan Dental Program whenever you need to know more.

Benefits Spotlight: Health Care That's Just a Call or Click Away

Your medical plan coverage includes three bonus services – a nurse line, walk-in clinics, and virtual care – that makes it easier for you to get care outside of regular office hours.
