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
  • the Sacramento region’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

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 two of the lowest-cost premium options for you. UC Blue & Gold remains one of the two lowest-priced monthly costs available, and, for individual coverage, also has the lowest annual out-of-pocket maximum. (One of the two lowest for families.) And it’s easy to switch from Kaiser

  • UC Care (PPO)
  • UC Blue & Gold HMO
  • UC Health Savings Plan (PPO)
  • CORE
  • UC Medicare PPO
  • UC Medicare PPO without Prescription Drugs
  • UC Medicare Choice
  • UC High Option Supplement to Medicare

Important note: Because UC Davis is part of a special pilot program for the next several years, plan rates for UC Davis employees remain lower than those listed in some UC-wide benefits materials and websites, such as the UCnet website. For context about the most accurate UC Davis rates, see the UC Davis Human Resources open enrollment website and its rates information page.

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