Medical Benefits Image

PEHP offers state employees three medical plans. Each medical plan has three associated networks to choose from.

Medical Plans

STAR Plan – With this high-deductible health plan, there is no premium share for state employees (unless Preferred Care is selected), and the state contributes to an associated Health Savings Account (HSA).

Traditional Plan – This plan has a lower deductible than other plans, but employees are responsible for premiums for this plan. This plan is not HSA qualified.

Utah Basic Plus – While there is no premium for this high deductible plan, (unless Preferred Care is selected), and the state contributes to an associated Health Savings Account (HSA), this plan offers only essential benefits and catastrophic coverage.

Network Options

Summit Care network consists of IASIS, MountainStar, University of Utah hospitals & clinics, providers and facilities.

Advantage Care is predominantly Intermountain Healthcare (IHC) providers and facilities.

Preferred Care providers and facilities are a combination of both the Advantage Care and Summit Care networks.

Each of the three networks offers thousands of participating providers and several hospital options.

Plan rates and co-pays or allowances depend on which plan options and networks you choose within each plan.
