Hospital union employee medical plans

Your benefits are changing for 2018 – see details here. The content on this page is for 2017 benefits.

If you’re a hospital union employee working full-time (at least 32 hours per week) or part-time (at least 24 hours per week), you’re eligible for our health plans.

If you’re represented by CNA at Keck or Norris, or NUHW at Keck, you can choose between the USC Network Medical Plan or the Anthem MyChoice HMO plan, for which there is no employee cost.
