Medical Coverage

We understand that your needs are unique, and that’s why Purdue – in conjunction with Anthem, Inc., Purdue’s medical plan administrator – gives you several medical plan options from which to choose.

Through the Anthem website or Sydney Health mobile app, you can access your plan information at your fingertips. With the member-friendly website or mobile app, you can check a claim, find a doctor, or keep track of your out-of-pocket costs. 

Follow Finding Care through Anthem’s Website or Mobile App for more information. Learn more about Tier 1 coverage through HealthSync or virtual care through LiveHealthOnline.

Need help choosing the right medical plan? Curious about how Medicare impacts your medical plan and health savings account? Do you need pre-certification for your procedure?
  • Watch our “Pre-Certification” video to learn more about what type of treatments require pre-certification, how you get it, and what happens if you don't receive it before a required procedure or treatment.

You have a choice of which network option you use. And some level of coverage is provided for each. However, you’ll always receive the highest level of coverage—that means less out of your pocket—when you choose Tier 1 (HealthSync). So, if you’re more cost-conscious, you’ll want to consider the advantages of choosing a provider in the Tier 1 network.

Locate all HealthSync-related resoures here.

You can search and find the most current list of HealthSync and in-network providers via Anthem’s website (anthem.com) or mobile app (Sydney Health). The links below showcase referral locations for services such as imaging (MRI), mammograms, physical therapy, colonoscopy and more for all three Purdue campus areas – West Lafayette, Fort Wayne and Northwest (Westville and Hammond).

The Consolidated Appropriations Act and Transparency in Coverage regulations require health insurers and group health plans to create machine readable files that contain the negotiated rates for in-network providers and allowed amounts derived from historical claims for out-of-network providers and make those files publicly available. A machine readable file is a digital representation of data or information in a file that can be imported or read by a computer system for further processing without human intervention.

When using the search option, the page will display links to several files, including:

  • Applicable In-Network Negotiated Rate Files
