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. The UTSW Network Benefit is available to any UT SELECT plan participant who wishes to receive care at UTSW facilities or from UTSW physicians.

Effective Sept. 1, 2012, benefits include $10 primary care and $10 specialist copayment, no out-of-pocket cost for most inpatient or outpatient care, and no deductible or coinsurance in most cases when UTSW Network providers are used.

The UTSW Network includes UT Southwestern University Hospital and UT Southwestern University Hospital – Zale Lipshy. UTSW faculty can be located with a search on the bcbstx.com/ut Provider Finder for "UT Southwestern Medical Center."

Physician fees for services performed by UTSW Network physicians at affiliated hospitals are also included in this benefit. However, the benefit does not include facility charges for other hospitals (e.g. Children’s Medical Center, VA North Texas Health Care System, Parkland Health & Hospital System, Baylor, and Texas Health Resources.

For Dallas and surrounding counties, UTSW has a clinically affiliated physician (UTSCAP) program in which UTSW selectively partners with quality internal medicine and family practice community physicians. UTSCAP providers are part of the UTSW Network and currently include:
