A Message from SelectHealth CEO, Patricia R. Richards

Patricia R. Richards 

We’re Here to Stay

As many of you know, Molina Healthcare recently announced they would be leaving Utah’s Federally Facilitated Marketplace (FFM) at the end of 2017. News like this can be concerning, especially given the uncertainty of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the exit of other carriers—like Arches and Humana—from the FFM.

We’d like Molina members and all of our members to know this: SelectHealth and Intermountain Healthcare will be here for you: We’re here to stay.

Being a Stable, Reliable Health Plan Matters to Us

We have been an anchor in the community, with more than 35 years of service as a local, not-for-profit health plan. During this time, the health insurance industry has experienced many changes and challenges, some of which have prompted other carriers to leave the market.

But not SelectHealth. Our stability stems from our dedication to serving the people of Utah. We are committed to offering affordable health plans and developing innovative tools and resources to meet the changing needs of our members.

My guess is that you’ve probably heard claims like this before, maybe even from those that have left our local communities. I understand if you are skeptical. You may be asking yourself, “How is SelectHealth different from any other health plan?” Let me share some examples to illustrate why we will be here when you need us.

We’re Part of Intermountain Healthcare—and Here’s Why That Matters

Integrated systems like Intermountain Healthcare and SelectHealth advocate for better health and healthcare. We share a mission of Helping People Live the Healthiest Lives Possible, and we work closely together to ensure that you receive personalized care and superior service.

Our members have in-network access to more than 5,000 physicians and 35 hospitals. They can also access medical records, claims, and benefits through a secure website called My Health—another benefit of our integrated system.

Plans with multiple hospital networks and those based outside of Utah may not be able to provide you this level of seamless coordination and convenience. And speaking of convenience, Connect Care (e-visits) can connect you with a caregiver anywhere, at any time.

Other online tools such as our personalized Medical Cost Estimator and newly updated provider search give you more information up front, so you can make good healthcare decisions. 

We’re Committed to Our Communities

Our caregivers live, work, play, and receive their healthcare in the same communities you do. When you call us with questions, you’re talking with someone who is part of your community. And we recognize that you can’t always find time to call during a busy workday, so we’re available extended hours Monday through Friday, even Saturday, and our members can chat with us online. 

We also support local organizations and causes are important to you. Learn more about where you’ll find us In the Community.

We Can Help You Make a Choice

As you begin the process of exploring your 2018 health insurance options, please remember that you have a choice. Choosing a not-for-profit, community-based health plan like SelectHealth is the beginning of a relationship intended to help meet your individual and family healthcare needs with insurance coverage you can count on.

SelectHealth and Intermountain Healthcare will be there when you need us.
