Insurance Plans

The University of Chicago Medicine currently participates in the health insurance products listed below. Please note that this list is subject to change at any time. Patients are advised to contact their insurance company to confirm the University of Chicago Medicine's participation in their network prior to scheduling an appointment.

If the University of Chicago Medicine is not in your insurance company's network and your policy has out-of-network benefits, your services can be processed against these benefits. This means that you may have a higher out-of-pocket responsibility than if you receive services from an in-network provider. Your insurance company's customer service representative can help verify your benefits, out-of-pocket costs, and coverage.
