Customer Review: Brittany Wilkinson from Herriman, Utah

"I choose Selecthealth for my health insurance every year because I trust them to take care of my family. They pay out quickly and cover everything we need covered. The customer service is always helpful."

Health Insurance Plans Offered

SelectHealth has a lot of health insurance plan options to choose from. The health insurance plans are not limited to just one format. SelectHealth offers private health insurance plans and health plans that meet the Affordable Care Act's requirements like covering the essential health benefits, including preventive care. It also offers Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, and dental insurance plans.

SelectHealth even offers short-term health insurance for individuals or families who are in between jobs or simply need temporary coverage.

Health insurance premiums, annual deductible, and out-of-pocket expenses (copays and coinsurance) for each plan vary based on several factors, including the coverage offered, age of the insured, and number of people insured. Some consumers may qualify for a monthly premium subsidy instituted by the Affordable Care Act.

Provider networks may also vary based on the plan you choose. For example, Preferred Provider Network (PPO) plans cover in- and out-of-network patient care, though at different rates. PPO plan members benefit from greater flexibility when choosing a physician. 

Member Resources

The online member portal through SelectHealth is called MyHealth and gives plan enrollees access to so many tools. Through it, you can view your health plan's benefits, limitations, and coverage. You can also read up on your rights and responsibilities as a member and get help finding a primary care physician or specialist and setting up appointments. These services apply to both general practitioners, mental health physicians, and other care providers.

One perk to SelectHealth's claims process is that it is paperless. You won't have to deal with that hassle, and once you file a claim you can track it 24/7 online. SelectHealth has a member services phone number, but members can only contact them during certain business hours with this number.

Unique Features

Like most other health insurance companies, SelectHealth has both a Find a Doctor tool and a Find a Facility tool. On the website, you'll also find simple explanations for each plan and ways to contact the company to find out more (and shop for plans that are specific to you).

The mobile app is also convenient, which actually has several capabilities. On the app, users can view their health plan's benefits and see how much coverage has been used so far. Users can also use the app to find a pharmacy or urgent care, email your ID card information if needed, and even see what the status is on wait times at an Intermountain InstaCare facility.

Member discounts are definitely another advantage at SelectHealth. With a health plan, you could pay less on a gym membership, eyewear, or hearing aids. SelectHealth also has discounts on supplements, alternative medicine, and personal training-items that seem luxurious but could actually have a big positive impact on your health.

Select Heath offers health education to members who want it. Through its additional services, its programs can help get you on the road to stop smoking or to lose weight, for example.

Customer Service

SelectHealth was created and is operated by the well-known Intermountain Healthcare organization. This hospital system was founded in 1975, and along the way SelectHealth was initiated. It has expanded to serve customers through a variety of health plans. Intermountain Healthcare has a great customer service reputation, and this culture extends to its health insurance partner. Together, the two prize high-quality health care services.

Primarily, customers can contact SelectHealth through one of its main phone numbers (including numbers dedicated to member services) or a secure message form. It also offers the opportunity to set up a live chat or schedule a call.

Customer Review: Kilee Wagner from Bountiful, Utah

"We've had select health for years and have been very happy. The EOB's are very easy to read and self explanatory. Customer service is great to answer any questions."

SelectHeath does have a helpful FAQs section, social media profiles, and even a company blog. All of these resources connect them to members and potential customers as well. Once you are a member with SelectHealth, of course, your resources leave little to be desired.

This insurance company has done an excellent job of providing members with almost any tool they would need. These tools help members find health care services by locating primary care doctors or specialists and hospitals. Other tools allow members to view benefits, file a claim, and even find advice for their health.

The Bad

  • State Availability
  • Business Hours Only

State Availability

If you're a potential Select Health customer, you'll want to know that the company only provides insurance in Utah and Idaho. If you don't live in these states, you'll need to find another insurer.

Business Hours Only

Customers can only contact Select Health during certain business hours, not 24/7. Even though members can access their online portal 24/7, it would be nice to have the option to contact a company representative, if needed, during the evening or early morning.


The Bottom Line

Medical expenses can be high and difficult to pay for. Having a health insurance plan provides policyholders with access to discounted health care prices and help paying for care. These discounts, deductibles, and limits on out-of-pocket expenses are frequently referred to as health benefits.

Select Health is a recommended insurer because of its high customer ratings. Its service area is quite small, limited to only two states: Utah and Idaho. Because of this, its customer base and network are much smaller, and SelectHealth insurance policies aren't available to most consumers in the United States.

As long as you live in one of these two states, this insurance company offers positive customer service, a variety of health plans, and convenient tools. It's easy to explore plans, compare premium costs and deductible amounts.

Once you enroll, SelectHealth makes it easy to find a network doctor with its Find a Doctor tool. Its paperwork is all available online through a member portal.

Considering the good service it offers, SelectHealth is a recommended insurer.

JennyB West Valley City, UT

I am on disability because I have MS and mild neurocognitive impairment so I can no longer work as an RN. I’m on Medicare, and signed up for SelectHealth Advantage. I initially had my premiums coming out of my SSDI payment monthly but then they stopped paying my premiums so my premiums weren’t paid for a few months. I was confused what was going on until I talked to someone. I couldn’t afford to pay all the premiums at once but I paid off what I thought I owed over a few months time. I received a notice in the mail saying that my policy had been cancelled for non- payment so I called them again, and we had to set up a new policy to begin Oct. 1, 2022. because apparently there was a payment not received in time. I asked the representative if they would arrange it so the insurance payment for the new policy could come out of my monthly SSDI payment. He said no problem. Please note before I go on that I’m on monthly infusions of Tysabri IV (every 36 days)which costs around $15,000 a month. This drug helps prevent more lesions from developing so I don’t become more disabled. I had to delay my September infusion since my policy was cancelled. I thought I was covered beginning Oct. 1 because this is what I was told, so I received my infusion at the first available appointment this busy clinic could get me in. Well come to find out Select Health cancelled my policy for non- payment on this new policy so I am stuck with the cost of this expensive drug treatment for October. Here is the part that I cannot believe! I received a notice in the mail in October telling me my policy was going to be cancelled so I immediately called SelectHealth, spoke with an agent, and asked what was going on. The representative told me to disregard the notice, and that my policy was fine. No mention was made that I owed anything. So I disregarded the notice. Then a while later I get another notice in the mail telling me my policy was cancelled for non- payment. I called in again, and asked them why. I was told that the policy was cancelled for non-payment, and they would not address the fact that I was told to disregard the notice. Now I owe a hefty infusion bill, and I had to delay my Tysabri infusion scheduled in November once again, (because I have no drug coverage again until Dec. 1st.) until mid December when they can get me in again. I did ask to speak with a supervisor, and he informed me that he reviewed all the communication and there is nothing they were going to do to help me. He too would not address the fact that I called in and was told my policy was fine. He also said the financial and medical issues I’m facing as a result was not something he can speak to. He also told me there was no one else I could speak to about this, and that I could appeal. This whole situation was very confusing, and I don’t think I was treated fairly. It has really put me in a financial bind, and I pray I don’t develop any lesions from not being able to receive my infusions as recommended by my neurologist.

So far I haven’t been a huge fan of this company. We have had countless communication or billing errors when working with customer service. When signing up for the plan for our son after he was born, they didn’t mention to us that his birth wouldn’t be covered because his birth was out of the network that our plan would be covering, that was the whole reason we were signing up the insurance plan so we were very disappointed to find out that we had to pay the 4000 dollars in medical bills for his birth out of pocket. One kind employee helped me to file an appeal but the appeal was denied and it was obvious by their reply that they didn’t even fully read what was written in the appeal as their reason for denying it had nothing to do with the issue at hand. When I called in again I was told that my plan only allowed me one level of appeals so there was nothing I could do. We like that the plan is rather cheap but be careful!

We pay a lot in premiums just to have a high deductible insurance policy, then select health does all it can to get out of paying for products/services and make the process as difficult, complicated and frustrating as possible. I don't trust this company but we had to have it through my employer. I am glad my employer switched to a new insurance company recently.

I can’t tell you the number of times that I will get a bill from SelectHealth literally 10 months after the fact that says it’s late and I’ve never received one. They need to find something different with their billing!

Select Health is a difficult company to work with. Customer service often does not know the answers to questions. It takes multiple calls to supervisors in various departments if you are trying to get a special circumstance approved. Notes are poorly documented from conversations.

High deductibles. I always felt they were the monster looming over my health care. Every decision based on my overall health was made with the dark cloud of select health a constant in my head.

They are a decent insurance company. But they are very focused on costs (more than others). This means that as a patient you often get lower quality medicines because they cost less.

Select Health was overpriced and and provided hardly any benefits. Their providers were good but ultimately not worth the cost so my family switched to Aetna.

Select health tries not to pay out anything the can. They are a very affordable option but the coverage isn't great.
