How It Works

Decorative Image

UCHP is a self-insured employee benefit plan designed around all covered treatment being provided by UChicago Medicine (UCM) facilities and providers including the University of Chicago Medical Center and Ingalls.

Each member must choose a Primary Care Physician (PCP) from the UCHP PCP network and all patient care is coordinated and managed through this physician in conjunction with the Utilization Management Professionals at Aetna, on behalf of UCHP. If deemed necessary, for optimal patient care, referrals to specialists will be arranged by the UCHP PCP.

UCHP members are given priority when scheduling appointments.
