Health Savings Account (HSA)

When HDHP is selected for the first time during employment (either during the new hire or switching at open enrollment) SUU will contribute $500, one time, to the employee's HSA.

The HSA has a $3,600/$7,200 annual contribution limit (EE + ER) for the 2021 calendar year.

Funds in the HSA roll over each year if unused and are portable, all funds deposited into the HSA go with the employee if they leave SUU employment.


Health Reimbursement Account (HRA)

Special enrollment for employees with HDHP and are not eligible for HSA. Employer contribution only.

What is Tier I pricing?

The largest cost-driver in our SUU plan is outpatient surgery. 

You can still use any of the providers in the network, but the much more affordable Surgical Centers were previously not available to SUU employees, as they were not on the EMI provider list.

With the change to UMR we now have access to these surgical centers.

As an incentive for employees to choose the less expensive surgical centers, we have given a lesser deductible to services performed at these centers.

The Tier I list will continue to grow, but at this time the following surgical centers will bill under Tier I.

  1. Cedar Orthopedic Surgery
  2. Cedar Orthopedic Surgery Center (C.O.S.C.)
  3. Southern Utah MRI  (SUMRI)
  4. Southern Utah Physical Therapy  (SUPT)
  5. Coral Desert - Revere Health Orthopedics
  6. St.  George Surgical Center
