Medical Plans

The University of Chicago offers four medical plans.  

The University of Chicago offers four different types of medical plans to choose from, two Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plans and two Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plans.  You can compare the four plans to determine which one best suits your medical needs.

The PPOs provide true insurance for the cost of medically necessary treatment for illness and injury, while maintaining your freedom to choose providers.

The HMOs reduce medical care costs by keeping you healthy and managing the costs that are incurred by monitoring your care and limiting your choice of providers.

Medical Plans Offered

Cost of Coverage

You and the University of Chicago share the monthly cost for medical coverage. The University pays the majority of the costs. Your cost is based on

  • The plan you choose;
  • The coverage level you choose (yourself only, yourself + spouse/partner, yourself + child(ren), yourself + family);
  • Your annual salary; and
  • Whether you are a full-time or part-time employee.

Your cost is automatically deducted from your paycheck before income taxes are withheld. The premium may be adjusted each year.

All BCBS plans offer coverage outside of the United States through Blue Cross Blue Shield Global Core.
