6.) Benefits Tip: Stretching Your Dollar
Here’s how you can put money back in your pocket. Bob goes out-of-network for an office/outpatient visit. His total cost for visit was $94.53. After insurance payment, Bob owes $90.69. If Bob had visited an in-network provider for same services, his total covered cost (after discount and insurance payment) would be $25.50, a $65.19 savings that Bob can spend on dinner with friends, family movie night, gas—he decides. Tip: Know in-network options before you plan an appointment to assure in-network benefit coverage.

7.) Recognition — It’s Happening Here
Recognition is essentially positive feedback that lets employees know they are valued and appreciated by their coworkers and the university. Want to acknowledge someone whose work accomplishments exemplify service excellence? Cardinal Kudos is a great way to recognize employees for their dedication, hard work and contributions to the success of the university.
