Medical Plan Options

Texas Health is proud to offer benefits eligible employees a variety of medical plan options to meet their health care needs. The plan options work very differently, so it’s important to take the time to understand how each option works before enrolling.

When choosing the medical plan that is right for you and your family, you’ll want to consider the total cost of coverage: what you pay out of your paycheck, how much you pay for services out of your pocket, etc. The information below is intended to help you understand the difference in the medical plan options available to you and the costs for services. To compare what you’ll pay out of your paycheck for each of these plans, click here.


Co-Pay Plan Options

HDHP Option 


Quantum Care 750

UHC Choice 1000

UHC Choice Plan 2500

How It Works

You pay a set amount (called a copay) for things like doctor and urgent care visits without needing to meet your deductible first. When you need hospital care or MRIs, CTs, or PET scans, you must pay your deductible before the plan pays part of the bill (called coinsurance). 

You pay the most when you need care because it is a High Deductible Health Plan option. Other than preventive care like checkups, this plan doesn’t pay any portion of your bill or prescriptions until you pay your full deductible.
Choosing a Facility

After you meet your deductible on any of the plans, your coinsurance payment depends on the facility you choose.

You pay 10% at Preferred Hospitals (a select list of hospitals where the plan pays the most for care, meaning you pay the least).

You pay 70% at all other in-network hospitals (hospitals that are covered in the UHC or Cigna network through Quantum but are not on the Preferred Hospital list).

You pay the full cost if you go out of network.

*The UHC Choice 2500 plan option has a non-embedded deductible. This means the family deductible must be paid out-of-pocket before the plan starts paying for health care services for any individual member.

1 The annual out-of-pocket maximum includes the annual deductible, medical coinsurance, medical copays, prescription coinsurance and prescription copays. It does not include non-compliance penalties, your premiums, or expenses that are not covered by the plan.

2 Virtual Care services at this price are available only when delivered through a Designated Virtual Network Provider. Quantum Health’s provider is MDLive and the virtual care services provided by UHC are through DocOnDemand, TelaDoc, and AmWell.

3 Wellness exams are covered in full if the claims administrator determines the physical is for preventive care. Additional screenings or services will be considered diagnostic services and will be covered after you pay the applicable copay or deductible and coinsurance. At the time of your preventive care visit, if other services are performed that are not preventive services, as determined by the claims administrator, they will not be paid at 100% even if they are submitted as part of a claim for preventive care. Some items require you to pay the appropriate copay or coinsurance, including electrocardiograms (EKGs), focused office visits, thyroid scans, breast MRI, vitamin D assays, and transvaginal ultrasounds

4 Non-emergency use of the emergency room is not covered

5 For the purposes of HSA enrollment, Employee + Family coverage includes Employee + Spouse, Employee + Children, or Employee + Family coverage
