CU GME Health and Dental Benefits Plan

Welcome to the CU GME Health/Dental Benefits Plan, the health, dental, and prescription drug card program available to eligible CU GME residents, fellows, and their dependents.

Refer to the July 1, 2013 Plan Document for details of health, prescription and dental insurance coverage.

The July 1, 2014 Plan Document is undergoing final revision. The following updates will be effective July 1, 2014:

1. Navitus Health Solutions is the Pharmacy Benefits Manager for the CU GME Health Benefits Plan.

2. Documentation of dependent eligibility is required to enroll dependents on the plan, e.g. birth certificate for newborn or marriage certificate for spouse.

3. Dental coverage through the Plan is an excepted benefit. Residents may choose to opt out of (waive) dental coverage and enroll for medical coverage only. 

4. In compliance with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) the Plan will provide coverage for routine patient costs incurred by a qualifying individual who is participating in an approved clinical trial.

 CU GME Health Plan Required Notices:

It is the resident's responsibility to know the terms of coverage.

Final determination of a claim is possible only when the actual claims for services rendered is received and reviewed. Any oral or written statement or representation that alters, modifies, amends or is inconsistent with the written terms of the Plan is invalid and unenforceable.

This plan does not require PCP selection, however, residents are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to establish care with a PCP. This will improve access to care should you become ill or have an injury, may help avoid an ER visit, etc. Many PCP providers have same day access when immediate care is necessary. Residents should seek medical attention when needed and know how to do so BEFORE an urgent situation arises. 

A $100 co-pay per emergency room will apply unless patient is admitted directly to the hospital from the emergency room.

Residents are not allowed to provide treatment or prescribe medication that is self prescribed, prescribed by one resident for another, prescribed by resident for a family member, or prescribed by resident for a family member of another resident.
