NorthShore University HealthSystem offers three medical plan options to suit employee needs. Prescription drug coverage and a Vision Discount Plan are also provided upon enrollment in any of our three medical plans.


Our Exclusive Provider Organization (EPO) option offers employees higher benefits in exchange for using NorthShore providers.

EPO Plus

Our Exclusive Provider Organization Plus (EPO Plus) option allows access to providers in the NorthShore and Aetna networks, as well as any provider of your choice.


Our Consumer Directed Health Plan (CDHP) option offers the ability to see providers in the NorthShore and Aetna networks, as well as any provider of your choice.  This option has higher deductibles and out-of-pocket costs, but provides the opportunity to enroll in a Health Savings Account (HSA) to help cover your out-of-pocket healthcare expenses.  NorthShore makes a contribution to the HSA based on CDHP plan coverage level and coverage begin date.
