Mineral® Human Resources (HR) and Compliance Services

NEW in 2024 for Small Employer groups in Utah and Nevada

Mineral is a platform/website that provides HR and compliance services for companies. We are partnering with them to provide these services to our Small Employer groups in Utah and Nevada. The service will work much like our built-in Intermountain Employee Assistance Program (IEAP). Select Health is contracting with Mineral to cover the cost of the service and groups will contact Mineral directly for help. There will be no system connections. Select Health will only provide Small Employer group details to allow for employer access, not employee information. Employers can choose whether to use the services.

Visit the Mineral website to learn more. For a summary of the services they provide and the employee handbook, visit the following links:

2024 Formulary changes

We wanted to give you a heads up about upcoming changes to the Select Health RxCore five-tier formulary (the list of a plan's covered drugs). This change will impact a small percentage of current Individual and Small Employer plan members.

We regularly update our prescription coverage to keep treatments accessible and affordable for our members. This year, we bundled several changes to the RxCore five-tier formulary that will take place on January 1, 2024. Patients and prescribing doctors will be notified of any changes that specifically impact them via letter and through our digital channels. Additionally, the following changes will occur:

Small Employers in Utah and Idaho

New and renewing plans will move from the RxSelect five-tier formulary to the RxCore five-tier formulary on their 2024 effective date.

Small Employers in Nevada

Plans will continue to use the RxCore five-tier formulary.

Grandmothered Small Employer plans

Plans will remain on the RxSelect formulary but will be moving from 3-Tier to 4-Tier formulary.

Grandmothered Individual plans

Plans will remain on the RxCore Formulary.

As we manage health care costs for all our members, we sometimes have to make difficult decisions about the drugs we cover and how we cover them. These changes are guided by evidence-based assessments and receive approval from our Pharmacy & Therapeutics Committee. For additional information, please visit selecthealth.org/rxfaq. To review the 2024 RxCore five-tier drug list for each state, visit selecthealth.org/pharmacy/pharmacy-coverage-2024.

Recurring payment option when making binder payments

When making a binder payment on Individual Plans, there is an option to save the payment method for future/recurring payments. Once this is selected, the credit card or e-check is saved and will be used when the next invoice is due. Future date payments are also allowed based on the date indicated on the payment page. Members who are on auto-payments can expect their premium to be deducted on the 1st of each month. To reach our billing department, call 800-442-8083, option 5.
