Saint Francis Physician Provider Contract Extended


Human Resources would like to make you aware of an update on the current contract for Saint Francis participating physician providers with the UHC network used by the University for its health insurance program. The contract has been extended through Aug. 31, 2020. This extension allows these providers to remain in network as a Tier 2 provider. If a new contract is not signed, Saint Francis participating physician providers will be out of network effective Sept. 1, 2020.

It is also the University’s understanding that, to date, an agreement has not been reached on the Saint Francis Medical Center network facility providers and rural clinics. Thus, the network facilities will continue to be out-of-network. Any claims for the network facility will be processed and applied to the out-of-network Tier 3 benefit.

Southeast employees are encouraged to access information on plan deductibles and out-of-pocket maximums on the Human Resources website at Additionally, employees can access their online UMR portal at and find participating network providers by clicking on the “Find a Provider” tab, or by calling UMR member customer service at 1-800-207-3172.
