University Community Care Plan FAQs

A deductible is an amount you pay for covered health care services before your insurance plan starts to pay. For example, if your insurance plan has a $500 deductible, you will pay $500 for your health care expenses before your insurance plan starts to pay for covered health care services.
A premium is an amount you pay each month for your insurance plan. You pay your premium to your insurance company.
A copay is a fixed amount ($20, for example) you pay for a covered health care service. Because UCCP is a $0 deductible plan,* your copay or coinsurance is the only amount you will be responsible for when getting health care services.
UCCP covers individuals and families who reside in Bexar County, Texas.
Use our online Provider Directory to search for a UCCP Provider. You can search by provider type, language spoken, zip code, and more. You can also view or download a complete list of our network of providers.
What happens if I need emergency care outside of the network?
Emergency medical care and post-stabilization services (services that keep your condition stable following emergency medical care) outside the UCCP network are covered under your plan at the same co-pay amount as in-network services.
An EPO is an Exclusive Provider Organization. In an EPO, your services are covered only if you go to doctors, specialists, or hospitals in your plan’s network (except in an emergency). No referrals are required for in-network specialty care. Our EPO is comprised of providers across Bexar County who are nationally recognized in their fields.
Can I get coverage outside Open Enrollment?
Outside Open Enrollment, you can get health insurance if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period, a limited time when you can enroll due to a life event, like losing other coverage, getting married, having a baby, or a change in your estimated household income. Your coverage generally starts the first of the month after you enroll.
How do I pay my monthly premium?
You will pay your monthly premium directly to Community First. Your coverage won’t start until you pay your first premium. Visit our Payments page to pay your premium now.
Where can I see a full list of UCCP benefits?

Visit our Plan Benefits page to view UCCP plan documents, plan brochure, Member Handbook, and much more.

How can I save money on my monthly premium?

When you apply for coverage, you will find out if you qualify for a “premium tax credit” that lowers your premium (the amount you pay each month for your insurance plan). The amount of your premium tax credit depends on the estimated household income that you include on your application. You can apply some or all of this tax credit to your monthly insurance premium payment. The Marketplace will send your tax credit directly to Community First, so you’ll pay less each month. This is called taking an “advance payment of the premium tax credit.”
