The Duke Select HMO medical insurance plan is available only to employees living in ZIP codes beginning with 272, 273, 275, 276 and 277. This plan uses a health care provider network unique to Duke. Since this network is unique, we encourage you to carefully review the provider listing here. Out-of-network care is only covered for emergency or urgent care. There is no annual deductible.

Under Duke Select you may, but are not required to, select a primary care physician (PCP) from a plan's list of network providers. Unlike traditional HMOs, with Duke Select you do not need a referral from your PCP to see a network specialist.

For more information, please see the Duke Select Member Guide.
