A partial list of our benefits
USHE has three plans (high-deductible, comprehensive, and advantage) within each of two providers (University Health Care Plus and Regence Blue Cross/Blue Shield). The dental and prescription drug coverage plan is the same for both providers. See the University of Utah’s comparison document for more information.
USHE has two types of retirement plans for benefit-eligible employees: USHE funded and employee funded.
USHE Funded – Fully paid by USHE; employees in benefit-eligible positions are automatically enrolled when they become eligible to participate.
New hires to USHE who have prior years of service wtih the Utah Retirement System (URS) may elect to enroll in the applicable URS plan within 30 days of their hire date. Choosing a URS plan may result in a downward adjustment of salary or hourly wage.
Employee Funded – Voluntary retirement plans all employees may participate in, regardless of their benefits-eligible status.
