Using Sandia Employee Health Services Clinics
Sandia’s Employee Health Services (EHS) clinics provide Sandians with quality care regardless of which medical plan you choose. The clinics in New Mexico and California provide a full range of services, including preventive care, treating acute illnesses, emergency care, treating work-related injuries, supporting emotional health, and management of health conditions like diabetes and asthma.
Most services are provided at no cost to Sandians. However, if you select the Health Savings Plan, you’ll pay the fair-market value for personal healthcare services until you meet the deductible ─ then you’ll have no additional cost when using the clinics for the rest of the year.
(Personal healthcare services are acute or episodic in nature — they may result from a flare-up or complication from a chronic condition or from an unforeseen health condition that is not covered under our umbrella of occupational- and work-related services. A few examples include coming to the clinic for a sore throat or flu symptoms, or for physical therapy following elective shoulder surgery.)
To ensure a seamless experience, Health Savings Plan participants will not be charged for a personal healthcare visit when receiving treatment at a clinic. Your insurer will first process the claim for your visit, then you’ll receive a bill for the services received.
A cost list for personal healthcare services will be available soon. (Remember, you can use your HSA funds to pay for eligible expenses applied to your deductible.)
