Medical and Prescription Drug Benefits with a Dental Plan

United Healthcare Customer Service Information: 1.888.332.8885

All eligible employees of the Archdiocese of St. Louis are eligible for a choice of two medical programs. The available programs are the UnitedHealthcare - Standard Plan and the UnitedHealthcare - Premier Plan. They are both Point of Service (POS) Plans. POS 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 UnitedHealthcare Choice Plus provider (i.e. “go in network”), you will receive a higher level of benefits.

Active eligible employees receive medical, prescription, and dental benefits within the Archdiocesan health insurance plan. Coverage is available at three different levels – employee, employee + one eligible dependent, or employee + family. Employee contributions will be deducted from your paycheck on a pre-tax basis. You may waive this process and instead elect coverage on an after-tax basis if you wish.

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.

Medicare D Prescription Drugs

Medicare prescription drug coverage is insurance that covers both brand name and generic prescription drugs at participating pharmacies. Medicare Part D plans are open to everyone who is eligible for Medicare in the U.S. Generally, that means people who are 65 years old or older, and some younger people with certain disabilities. Participation is voluntary. You get to decide if you want to enroll or not. Below is a letter from the Archdiocese of St. Louis Employee Benefit Health Plan that explains about your current prescription plan with Mercy Health Plan or United Healthcare Choice Plus Plan and the enrollment into Medicare D. For further comprehensive information, please see the Medicare website at
