Shop for the Best Care & Value Using PEHP Cost Tools

PEHP members can search by medical services to find providers, medications, and costs using PEHP’s cost tools. Plus, you can find cash back opportunities.

To get started, log in to your PEHP account. When you log in to your PEHP account, click on "Providers, Facilities, & Costs" under the “Find Providers and Costs” menu, then choose your network.

Under the “Compare Medical Costs” tab, you can search by medical services. You’ll see cost information for services based on past claims PEHP processed.

Your search results will display common services based on the treatment you entered to give you a better idea of total costs at different locations where the service has been performed. Sometimes you’ll see multiple services bundled together, which means they were frequently performed together.

For each location, you’ll see a list of providers who have performed your desired treatment. Compare providers and costs to seek quality care and great value.

Under the "Compare Prescription Costs" tab, you can do the following:

  • Look up a health condition to see a list of drug options along with prices
  • Compare prices for a drug at local pharmacies
  • See if cash back is available

Find Cash Back Opportunities

As required by the Utah Legislature, PEHP offers cash back opportunities for certain medical services performed by low-cost providers. Cash back is also available for certain medications. The amount of cashback can range between $50 and $2,000.

Eligible services include:

  • Colonoscopies
  • MRIs and CT scans
  • Some same-day surgeries
  • Some inpatient stays
  • Some medications

Why Offer Cash Back?

Healthcare costs can vary based on where you receive services. They can also vary between providers of the same type. PEHP rewards you for using low-cost, in-network providers through a cash back program required by the Utah Legislature through HB 19 from the 2018 General Session. Cash back is a form of shared savings to help you save on your deductibles and co-insurance and keep overall healthcare costs down to help preserve your benefits.

How is Cash Back Determined?

The amount eligible for cash back depends on the amount of savings available for a specific service or medication. Cash back can range between $50 and $2,000 depending on your network.
