Open enrollment: Oct. 26 at 8 a.m. – Nov. 17 at 5 p.m.

When you’re considering your health care options this year, we hope you’ll consider staying in the UC family – and select a plan that includes UC Davis Health.

Choosing a UC Davis Health primary care provider for your everyday care gives you a personal connection to the health expertise, discoveries and resources of:

  • the world’s leading public research university system,
  • one of the nation’s top 10 public universities, and
  • Sacramento’s No. 1-ranked hospital.

We proudly offer patient-centered care at clinic locations close to home and work – including two clinics in Davis, one in Midtown Sacramento, and several on our Sacramento campus.

How to choose UC Davis Health

Please note: Information is current as of September 2023 but is subject to change.

1. Choose a health plan that we accept

To choose us for your family’s everyday care, first select a health plan that includes UC Davis Health (we may also be listed as UC Davis Medical Group). 

Note: The UC Blue & Gold HMO and UC Health Savings Plan remain among the lowest-cost premium options for you. UC Blue & Gold remains one of the lowest-priced monthly costs available. And it’s easy to switch from Kaiser


Because UC Davis is part of a special pilot program, actual plan rates for UC Davis employees may be lower than those listed in some UC-wide benefits materials and websites (such as the systemwide Open Enrollment brochure, the UCnet website, and the UCPath portal). For information about the most accurate UC Davis rates, see the UC Davis Human Resources open enrollment website and its rates information page.

If you are in a bargaining unit represented by a union, the University will adhere to its collective bargaining obligations, and any applicable collective bargaining agreement, with respect to your contribution rates.

If you are using a partner’s non-UC health insurance plan, you can also find UC Davis Health’s main list of accepted health plans here.

2. Choose UC Davis Health as your medical group

We may be listed as UC Davis Health or as UC Davis Medical Group in your plan materials.

3. Find your primary care doctor

If you have questions on scheduling or need assistance finding a doctor, please don’t hesitate to call the UC Davis Health employee liaison line at 916-734-1700. This line has been specially established as part of our service commitment to our employees.
