Options to Meet Your Needs
Offering two benefit structures – PPO and Reference-Based Pricing – Employers can choose options to meet their needs. Each structure is designed to support local providers and keep care local. Members receive the best benefits when seeking care within our community. If care is needed outside the community, comprehensive benefits still apply.
Emergency care is ALWAYS provided at the Tier I level of benefit regardless of where the care is provided.
Plan participants have access to Saint Francis facilities and providers, as well as other local providers outside the Saint Francis network. This collaboration keeps care local while reducing costs and benefiting the communities we are called to serve.
