About Us

The Ohio State University Health Plan manages the healthcare insurance benefits and services offered to faculty and staff at The Ohio State University. By overseeing the many health and wellness resources available to members and giving them a single point of contact for all of their health plan needs, we make staying healthy a little bit easier.

We’re proud of The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, who provides the highest quality health care to each and every patient, every time. Ohio State ranked #3 among 104 academic medical centers that were included in the 2014 UHC Quality and Accountability Study, based on delivering high-quality safe, efficient, patient-centered and equitable patient care. 

An alliance of 117 academic medical centers, University HealthSystem Consortium’s (UHC) mission is to create knowledge, foster collaboration, and promote innovation to help members succeed. UHC’s Quality and Accountability Study ranks AMCs for their performance across a range of key patient safety and quality indicators including mortality, effectiveness, safety, equity, patient centeredness, and efficiency.

RX Ohio

The Rx Ohio Collaborative (RxOC) is an expanding benefit initiative for employers to save on prescription drug costs at both the institutional and consumer level.

Combining the benefits of plan independence and scale, the Rx Ohio Collaborative (RxOC) is working to reshape the delivery of the pharmacy benefit. Extending its buying power to self-insured employee health plans, the RxOC is focused on improving value in prescription drug use by driving down the cost of drugs while helping to improve health outcomes.

Beyond cost savings, the RxOC has developed a forum for creating strategies focused on positively impacting patient health and influencing the health care system to benefit participants and plan sponsors.
