Select Health Announces the Addition of University of Utah Facilities and Providers to its Medicare Advantage Network

To help meet the growing need for healthcare services for Medicare beneficiaries in Utah, Select Health and University of Utah Health announced today an agreement in which Select Health is adding full access to University of Utah hospitals, clinics, and providers for its Medicare Advantage network. The agreement is effective July 1, 2022, and creates access to services and facilities throughout the University of Utah Health system.

“To achieve our mission of helping people live the healthiest lives possible and best serve our senior community, it’s important our Medicare Advantage members access care in a manner most convenient to them,” said Marti Lolli, Select Health President and CEO. “We believe this agreement will improve member satisfaction and allow members greater choice in their primary care provider or specialist, as well as access to everything from preventive care to emergency services in locations closest to home.”

The joint effort by Select Health and University of Utah Health will increase the number of options for Medicare Advantage services and open access to providers and facilities including the University of Utah Hospital, Moran Eye Center, Huntsman Cancer Institute, University Orthopaedic Center, and community clinics including the South Jordan, Sugar House, and Farmington Health Centers. Select Health Medicare Advantage members will have more options to meet their healthcare needs.

“We are excited about this new partnership with Select Health,” said Michael Good, M.D., CEO of University of Utah Health. “By working together, we are able to provide the best care for our seniors. This alliance is a very meaningful way in which we can better serve people and communities and provide greater access and convenience to those who receive their healthcare through Medicare Advantage.”
