Medical Insurance

Marquette offers three medical care options to best fit your needs: CPHP, AHDHP or EHDHP. Monthly premiums are determined by the coverage selected: employee only, employee + spouse, employee + child(ren) and family. All medical care options are identical in the type of covered services provided, the national provider network, and coverage for wellness and preventive care at 100%. The only differences between the plans are premiums, deductibles, co-pays and out-of-pocket maximums.

The CPHP has the highest monthly premiums but includes a lower deductible and out-of-pocket maximum. The EHDHP has the lowest monthly premiums but includes a higher deductible and out-of-pocket maximum. The AHDHP falls in between these two plans. Together, the deductible, coinsurance and co-pays make up the out-of-pocket maximum. Once you reach the out-of-pocket limit, the plan pays 100% of covered services for the remainder of the year. 


You are eligible for this benefit on the first of the month following your date of hire/change in status.

The Plan classifies an employee as an “eligible employee” when that person has a minimum of a 9-month continuous assignment and:

  • Is regularly scheduled to work for Marquette for at least 20 hours per week or has an academic appointment for a minimum of 6 credits hours in two consecutive academic year semesters;  or
  • Is covered under a Collective Bargaining Agreement with the Plan holder that specifies a different definition of health care benefit eligibility.

Premium Designated Providers (PDPs)

Need help in selecting a new doctor, outpatient facility or hospital? Let UMR help you find providers with a blue dot, indicating they provide high quality results and lower costs to you.

Tier 1 providers include those who have consistently followed quality standards that were developed by doctors for doctors, so they know what type of care works. With these providers, you’re more likely to get the care you need the first time, at the right place. That means:

  • Fewer complications
  • Fewer do-over surgeries
  • Fewer unnecessary lab tests, MRIs and medications

Choosing Tier 1 providers helps you manage your health care dollars. Choose providers with the Tier 1 symbol — a blue dot — next to their name to get high quality* care and pay less. Call the number on the back of your UMR member ID card to get connected to a Tier 1 provider near you. Or search for one by logging in to on your computer or mobile device.

Transparency in Coverage Rule

 On November 12, 2020, the Departments of Health and Human Services, Labor and the Treasury finalized the Transparency in Coverage Rule that requires health insurers and group health plans to create a member-facing price comparison tool and post publicly available machine-readable files that include in-network negotiated payment rates and historical out-of-network charges for covered items and services, including prescriptions drugs. Data in machine-readable files will be updated monthly.

Beginning July 1, 2022, through UnitedHealthcare, UMR and HealthSCOPE Benefits will create and publish the Machine-Readable Files on behalf of Marquette University. To link to the Machine-Readable Files, please click on the URL provided: These Machine-Readable Files will be posted in a more consumer-friendly format in 2023 and 2024.
