INDIANAPOLIS (IU Health) – Because of Indiana University Health’s ministry partnership with United Methodists of Indiana, IU Health is pleased to continue its courtesy discount to individuals insured through the Indiana Conference insurance plans, according to Daniel F. Evans, Jr., President and CEO of IU Health.

All IU Health hospitals, including its location in Goshen, participate in this discount.

For those insured by Plan PPO 500, when a participant receives services at an IU Health Hospital, IU Health will require participants to meet the annual deductible. After the participant’s insurance company pays its portion, any remaining charges will be waived up to the participant’s annual out-of-pocket limit (an additional $2,000). At that point the participant’s insurance company will pay all remaining charges.

The introduction of a Consumer-Driven Health Plan (CDHP) presents a new model. For individuals insured under this plan, IU Health’s contribution will be managed in this way. IU Health will require participants to meet the annual deductible of $2,000. After the participant’s insurance pays its portion, IU Health will waive the next $2,000 up to the participant’s annual out-of-pocket limit (an additional $3,000). At that point the participant’s insurance company will pay all remaining charges.

Evans says, “Our intent is to support our partners in ministry and provide an equitable benefit to all conference-insured persons, regardless of which plan you choose. When you find it necessary to utilize hospital services, our hope is that you will choose IU Health physicians and hospitals. Our belief is that you will receive unsurpassed quality and service.”
