Medical Benefits: Two Plans –Two Networks. Participants in the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis Medical Benefit Plan (AMBP) may choose from two medical plan designs, and within those plan designs, one of two network options. The plan designs are:

  • PPO Plan with Aware® network
  • PPO Plan with Group Value network
  • High-Deductible Health Plan with Aware® network
  • High-Deductible Health Plan with Group Value network

The network is the only difference, aside from premium cost, between the two PPO offerings and the two High-Deductible Health Plan offerings.

Health Savings Accounts (HSA) under Benefitfocus

Those who select one of the High-Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) options may choose to open an HSA through Benefitfocus. Learn more on the Archdiocese Benefits Website.


The Archdiocese sponsors a 403(b) plan for lay employees through Transamerica, who offers investment education and retirement planning seminars to assist employees in planning for future financial needs. The Archdiocese also sponsors a retirement plan for archdiocesan priests that provides a monthly income to them in their retirement years. The lay employee and priest plans are administered by a board of trustees.

The pension plan for lay employees was frozen in 2011.
