As a result of this year’s review, we are pleased to announce several changes that will begin February 1, 2022:
- A decrease in the premium rates for Option 1: Ambulance/Hospital coverage;
- Coverage for Option 3 has been upgraded; and
- A new Option 4 is available with enhanced benefit coverage.
Plan members have been sent the details of these changes by mail. There will be an open enrollment period from February 1st to March 31st, 2022 for members who wish to change their coverage.
The upgraded Option 3 will now include these additional coverages: vision care and extra paramedical services such as acupuncture, massage, naturopath, and osteopath under the paramedical services maximum.
The new enhanced Option 4 adds value to your benefit plan with higher maximums on drugs, paramedical services, vision care, and the addition of major dental and child orthodontics coverage.
