GatorCare Notes...

Important Information regarding Health Plans offered through GatorCare effective 1/1/2015
GatorCare offers a wealth of wellness resources and covers preventative care appointments and contraceptives at 100 percent.

As we prepare for open enrollment you will notice a few changes to your 2015 plan as a result of health care reform and an increase in high-cost claims. This includes a nominal increase in the following: deductibles, co-payments for specialist visits and co-insurance for medications and inpatient/outpatient services. Additionally, a co-payment for emergency room visits will now be required, but will be waived if you are admitted.

Please note that co-payments to your primary care physician will not increase and out-of-pocket medication costs will now be included in your out-of-pocket maximum.

To reduce your out-of-pocket costs, we encourage you to establish a relationship with a primary care physician and whenever possible avoid emergency room visits. There are several options available for times when you need immediate medical attention including after-hours services and GatorAdvantage, which gives members expedited access to UF Health providers.

We look forward to continuing to serve your health care needs and offering you the best in health care access, quality and wellness.

Please review the plans offered through your employers. Please visit your employer’s benefit page for open enrollment dates and enrollment processes.
