Availability of Summary Health Coverage Information
As an employee or retiree of UT System, the health benefits available to you represent a significant component of your compensation package. They also provide important protection for you and your family in the case of illness or injury.
Choosing a health coverage option is an important decision. To help you make an informed choice, your plan makes available a Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC), which summarizes important information about any health coverage option in a standard format, to help you compare across options. The uniform Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC) provision of the Affordable Care Act requires all insurers and group health plans to provide consumers with an SBC to describe key plan features in a mandated format, including limitations and exclusions. The provision also requires that consumers have access to a uniform glossary of terms commonly used in health care coverage.
Review an SBC for UT SELECT PPO or Out-of-Area coverage at any time, visit the Blue Cross Blue Shield website. You can view the glossary online at any time on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services website. To request a copy of these documents free of charge, you may call the SBC hotline at (855) 756-4448.
