As you consider your options, keep in mind the main difference is how you pay—either more up front (per paycheck premium) and less when you get care (deductible and copays) ... or less up front and more when you get care.

All of our medical plans are adminstered by Baylor Scott & White Health Plan (BSWHP). If you are enrolled/planning to enroll in a BSW medical plan, be sure to link your employee account to your MyBSWHealth account for in-app access to the BSWHP.

Check Premiums

The amount you pay per pay period depends on the plan you choose and the number of covered dependents.

What You Pay

Your cost for care depends on your medical plan, services received and where you go for care. With every plan, you get preventive care at no cost when you visit in-network providers.

The amount you pay per pay period depends on the plan you choose and the number of covered dependents. Premiums are deducted from your paycheck before taxes. If you change salary bands during the year, your premium will not be impacted.

Keep in mind the tobacco surcharge may impact the amount you pay in premiums.

Only available with the PPO and HDHP plans, gives you access to a national network of providers.

Tier 3: Out-of-Network

Tobacco Surcharge

We are committed to you and your family’s long-term health. If you and/or a dependent enroll in a medical plan, you will be asked about your tobacco usage within the last 12 months. If you confirm the use of tobacco products, you will pay a $30 tobacco surcharge for each member who uses tobacco, up to a maximum of $60 per pay period.

To remove the tobacco surcharge, you or your dependents must complete a tobacco cessation wellness coaching or have your physician provide a certification that you have quit using tobacco products. Please note that enrollment in the Tobacco Cessation Program will not prevent the tobacco surcharge from being applied. The surcharge will be applied until you or your dependents have completed the program and submitted the Tobacco Affidavit to PeoplePlace, which is provided once you complete the Tobacco Cessation Program.
