Insurance Plans

UT Southwestern Medical Center accepts most major insurance plans. But please note that not all UT Southwestern faculty providers participate in all plans. Please contact the UT Southwestern clinical practice or hospital where you wish to be scheduled to verify that they accept your plan. If you're a new patient and have questions, please contact 214-645-8300.

Affordable Care Act

UT Southwestern is currently enrolled to cover a number of ACA plans through the major Payers in the market (Blue Cross Blue Shield, AETNA, CIGNA and United Healthcare), however the Payers have notified us that those plans will be cancelled in 2016. 

We will continue negotiations with Payers to enable UT Southwestern to provide in-network services for 2016 exchange plans. We are contracted to provide individual/family plans offered through Humana and Cigna that have similar benefits to ACA exchange plans. UT Southwestern expects to participate in Parkland ACA site-of-service plans in 2016.
