Medical and Prescription Drug Benefits with dental and a $10,000 Term Life Insurance and AD&D Plan



All eligible employees of Private Catholic Groups that participate in the Archdiocese of St. Louis health insurance are eligible for a choice of two medical programs, provided enrollment occurs within 31 days of eligibility. The available programs are UnitedHealthCare POS (Archdiocese Self-Funded Medical Program) Standard Plan or the UnitedHealthcare POS Premier Plan.

A POS (Point of Service) Plan is a network of physicians and hospitals that has a contract with the plan to provide medical benefits. Members can choose any provider for care. However, if you choose an in-network provider (i.e. “go in network”), you will receive a higher level of benefits.

Both UHC medical plans provide a dental plan through Delta Dental of Missouri plus a $10,000 term life insurance policy through Unum Life Insurance. See information below.

Important Health Insurance Plan ACTION REQUIRED

Effective Plan Year July 1, 2015 – Prerequisite for UHC Premier Plan For Employees Currently Enrolled in the UnitedHealthcare Plan

Remember the old saying that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure?” This can be especially true when it comes to preventive healthcare services.

Wellness has an important place in your employee’s daily life and your workplace. The Archdiocese has a goal to further promote, improve and integrate more employee wellness attention through plan design initiatives of the Archdiocese Health Insurance Plan.  It is to the benefit of all when an employee identifies health risk factors early and takes steps to minimize those risks. We hope you choose to be part of this wellness program detailed below.

 The Archdiocese offers two health plan options – the UnitedHealthcare Standard and Premier Plan. To be eligible for the Premier Plan choice in 2015, you must complete a Wellness Prerequisite as described below.

 Plan Year Beginning July 1, 2015 – Prerequisite for UHC Premier Plan

 Effective July 1, 2015, the employee (not spouse or children on the health plan) must complete one of the following in order to choose the United Healthcare (UHC) Premier Plan:

  1.  Receive an annual wellness exam with a physician of your choice between May 1, 2014 and April 30, 2015 and submit an Employee Wellness Form for 2014 -2015  to H&H Associates by the deadline of May 7th, 2015


   2. Participate in the employer paid, confidential H & H Health Associates health screening between May 1, 2014 and April 30, 2015.

 If you receive your annual wellness exam from your physician, please complete the Employee Wellness Form for Open Enrollment . Send the form to H&H Health Associates via mail, fax or email in order to have a choice between the two plan options in 2014. If you complete an H&H Health Associates screening, you do not need to submit the form. 

 Without the health screening or an annual wellness exam as verified on the completed Employee Wellness Form for 2014 -2015, you will be limited to selecting the UHC Standard Plan, effective July 1, 2015.

 A quality and comprehensive wellness exam by your physician, including lab work, is generally more thorough to an H & H Health Associates screening. We encourage you to develop a physician/patient relationship to enhance the quality of your life.

Delta Dental of Missouri

Customer Service Information: 1.800.335.8266

All Archdiocesan employees enrolled into one of the two available medical plans are automatically enrolled into the Delta Dental Plan of Missouri. Like the medical plans, you may see any dentist you wish. However, if your dentist participates with Delta Dental your costs may be reduced. Employees are not able to enroll in just the dental plan only.

The Archdiocese has an enhanced dental program by offering a second network (Delta Dental PPO network) with enhanced Basic and Major benefits.  If you choose to see a Delta Dental PPO dentist, you will save money and stretch your benefits.  The Delta Dental PPO network gives you 10% more benefits for Basic and Major services. Delta Dental PPO dentists provide greater discounts, saving you even more money. There is no change to your benefits, if you continue to see a Delta Dental Premier dentist or a non-participating dentist.

      You and your eligible dependents have the freedom to choose any dentist. Benefits will be based upon your provider and services. You do not enroll in the PPO Network or Premier Network. For example, you may be a patient of a PPO network provider and your dependent may be a patient of a Premier network provider. You are able to change a dentist at any time.



Unum Life Insurance and Accidental Death & Dismemberment

Customer Service Information: 314.792.7540

Each eligible Archdiocesan employee enrolled in the medical plan is automatically provided $10,000 of group term life insurance through Unum Life Insurance Company.
