o LSU First offers members access to 100% coverage with First Choice providers and generic prescriptions. This means that members will not incur any out-of-pocket expenses for covered services from First Choice Providers* and/or generic prescriptions. LSU First also includes an employer-paid health reimbursement account (HRA) that can be used to offset deductible and other out-of-pocket medical expenses throughout the year. Any unused HRA funds roll over, up to a maximum, allowing members to build up balances to cover eligible medical expenses.

- $150 Emergency Room co-pay, waived if admitted
- $150 Penalty for MRIs and CT scans performed at a hospital facility (No penalty if performed at free-standing imaging center)
