Medical Insurance

Medical Plans available at creighton university

Creighton University offers 3 medical plan options to you and your eligible dependents through UnitedHealthcare.   Each option offers comprehensive benefits to protect you and your family against the medical expenses that would accompany an illness or injury.

Our plan is self-insured, which means UnitedHealthcare administers the payment of claims according to our medical plan benefits. They negotiate rates with hospitals and doctors on your behalf and offer a variety of wellness benefits and resources.

Spousal Surcharge

Effective January 1, 2021, employees’ spouses who have access to affordable health care that meets the Affordable Care Act (ACA) minimum guidelines through another employer will be subject to a $120 monthly surcharge if they choose to have their spouse remain on the Creighton medical plan. The surcharge will be added to the premiums amounts owed upon enrollment to the Plan. This eligibility change will allow Creighton to maintain affordable coverage for its employees, spouses who have no other health coverage choice, and dependent children.

New for 2022: Pharmacy Benefit Manager Changing from OptumRx to Express Scripts

Each year, Creighton examines benefits, and this year, we’ve made the decision to change our prescription benefits manager. Express Scripts works with pharmacies and organizations like Creighton to make the process of purchasing prescription medication easier and less costly if you are enrolled in one of Creighton’s medical plans.

Your prescription drug benefits aren’t changing; only the administration is.

While plan features like copays, deductibles and/or coinsurance remain the same, your 2022 costs for specific drugs are based on your medical option, whether the drug is a generic or brand name and whether it’s on the 2022 formulary.

Online access to savings and convenience

Manage your medicines anywhere, any time with express-scripts.com and the Express ScriptsTM mobile app.
