The available plan options are the UnitedHealthcare - Standard Plan and the UnitedHealthcare - Premier Plan. They are both Point of Service (POS) Plans. POS is a network of physicians and hospitals that has a contract with the plan to provide medical benefits. Members can choose any provider for care. However, if you choose an in-network provider (i.e. “go in network”), you will receive a higher level of benefits. 

Active eligible employees receive medical, prescription, dental and vision insurance within the Archdiocesan health insurance plan. Coverage is available at three different levels – employee, employee + one eligible dependent, or employee + family.

All Continuation of Coverage/Early Retiree Plan participants enrolled into one of the two available UHC medical plans are automatically enrolled into the Delta Dental Plan of Missouri. Like the medical plans, you may see any dentist you wish. However, if your dentist participates with Delta Dental your costs may be reduced. Delta Dental of Missouri will mail your new ID card to your home address.

Delta Dental offers two networks, the Delta Dental Premier network and the Delta Dental PPO network.  If you choose to see a Delta Dental PPO dentist, you will save money and stretch your benefits.  The Delta Dental PPO network gives you 10% more benefits for Basic and Major services. Delta Dental PPO dentists provide greater discounts, saving you even more money. There is no change to your benefits, if you continue to see a Delta Dental Premier dentist or a non-participating dentist.

      You and your eligible dependents have the freedom to choose any dentist. Benefits will be based upon your provider and services. You do not enroll in the PPO Network or Premier Network. For example, you may be a patient of a PPO network provider and your dependent may be a patient of a Premier network provider. You are able to change a dentist at any time.
