Our Philosophy

At Health Choice Utah, we are committed to a collaborative approach with physicians, hospitals and all other providers in the medical communities of Box Elder, Cache, Davis, Iron, Morgan, Rich, Salt Lake, Summit, Tooele, Utah, Wasatch, Washington, and Weber counties.

Our team brings an open vision to Utah. We believe that those who provide care should be the leaders in creating and constructing new, better and less invasive mechanisms for the delivery of the care they provide. We are provider-owned and we understand both the rewards and difficulties of managed care and health plan/provider relationships.

We believe our members deserve the highest quality medical care while being treated with both compassion and respect. Assisting you so that you can devote your time to providing quality patient care is one of our highest priorities. Our commitment to you is to support the doctor-patient relationship by streamlining the delivery of care.

We are inviting Utah physicians, hospitals and ancillary providers who have a proven track record of delivering quality, compassionate care to become part of the Health Choice family.

What We Offer Our Physician Network

Health Choice Utah brings the expertise and road maps necessary to understand, participate in and maximize the value of the sweeping changes affecting the delivery of health care.

We offer real-time tools, technology and up-to-date information to our physicians and providers. We will assist and offer guidance to physicians and hospitals for the purpose of building partnerships in the form of Accountable Care Organizations (ACO), patient-centered medical homes and other entities that will maximize quality and reward performance.

How We Assist Your Practice

  • We are committed to providing you with tools to help you effectively and efficiently manage the care of the individuals you serve through Health Choice Utah.
  • Our medical director, Dr. Christopher B. Valentine, M.D., FAAFP, is not just an administrator. Dr. Valentine is a local practicing physician who has been in Utah for over ten years. He understands the concerns and issues you face daily.
  • We work closely with your team to streamline and expedite prior authorization by minimizing the number of procedures requiring prior authorization. Many of the items still on our abbreviated prior authorization list ask for notification only.
  • Our Transition of Care Program is unique to the industry. Upon hospital discharge, we initiate an interdisciplinary plan of care which can include assessment of home care needs, follow-up with home care providers, medication reconciliation, scheduling and transition to case management and disease management.
  • Customer service is the fabric our organization. Our internal infrastructure is designed to provide your patients speedy access to customer service representatives and to expedite claims processing.
