New! UTSW Network for UT SELECT Plan Participants
The UTSW Network Benefit is a collaborative pilot program between UT Southwestern and The University of Texas System Office of Employee Benefits, providing UT SELECT members a greatly reduced or eliminated out-of-pocket expense when receiving care from a UTSW physician or at a UTSW facility.
