Our medical insurance offers three different options to employees with USHG sharing the cost of the premium with enrolled employees.

We cover 100% of the cost of the “In Network” Plan for you (an individual plan) or we will apply a set dollar amount per month to the cost of your plan if you choose to add dependants or to go out-of-network using the Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plan.

Flexible Spending allows you to increase the income you take home by reducing the amount of taxes you pay for qualified expenses.
