Benefits Office

The UW Benefits Office manages the plan but does not handle claims or enrollment. Please contact LifeWise on issues related to claims, enrollment, and benefit provisions.

Network Providers

Contact a Medical Plan Network Provider, including Hall Health.

Locate other LifeWise contracted providers by accessing or by calling Customer Service at 800-971-1491.

Non-Network Referral Service

The GAIP plan allows you and your enrolled, eligible dependents to seek medical treatment wherever you please. However, your cost when using a non-network provider is higher than if you see a network provider. Review the Benefits Booklet for more information on the network providers and notice the differences in benefits.

Before seeking care, contact LifeWise to find a contracted provider in your location. If you use a contracted provider, you will not have to pay any amount over the allowable charge.
