2024 Annual Enrollment: New specialty programs offer financial assistance 

Marquette offers programs that can help qualified members financially when faced with specialized treatment. They include: 

  • Samaritan Fund: Representatives at the Samaritan Fund help find medical plans that offer the most coverage for the lowest price for qualified members facing a difficult illness and as a replacement for the plans offered through Marquette University. Direct any questions on this program to the Samaritan Fund Program team via phone at (866) 764-9290 or via email at service@samaritanfundprogram.com. Contact Samaritan Fund to apply prior to the close of open enrollment (Monday, Nov. 6). More details here
  • Safety Net benefit: A pilot program that provides financial assistance to employees with a qualified annualized salary and who met the deductible for the plan and tier they are enrolled in for 2024. 
  • Specialty Access Program: This program provides assistance to the member by evaluating alternative methods to help pay for specialty medications while ensuring the member is adhering to their recommended course of treatment. Navitus will be contacting members who are currently utilizing eligible specialty medications in the coming weeks by mail.
