Custom Trio HMO Per Admit 20-500
+ Enhanced Rx $10/20/35 with $0 Pharmacy Deductible
+ Chiropractic and Acupuncture Benefits Additional Coverage

Our Trio HMO plan is typically more affordable than other plans. It features a select network of local providers who closely coordinate your care and a concierge service to help you with everything from benefit questions to scheduling doctor’s appointments. When you enroll in the Trio HMO plan for the first time, you must choose a primary care physician (PCP) for yourself and your covered dependents. Each member of your family can choose a different physician and medical group/Independent Practice Association (IPA).

To enroll in the Trio HMO plan, you must live or work within the Trio service area.

Custom HMO Per Admit 20-500
+ Enhanced Rx $10/20/35 with $0 Pharmacy Deductible
+ Chiropractic and Acupuncture Benefits Additional Coverage

With our Access+ HMO plan, you will only pay a fixed copayment for most services. You'll also be asked to select a primary care physician (PCP) to coordinate your care and refer you to specialists and hospitals within their medical group.

Custom PPO Combined Deductible 20-750 90/70
+ Enhanced Rx $10/20/35 with $0 Pharmacy Deductible

Our PPO plans offer a broad physician and hospital network, and the flexibility to see any doctor in, or out, of the plan’s network. However, PPO plans may include a deductible, which is the amount you must pay before your insurance kicks in. After you’ve met your deductible, you’ll usually pay a percentage of the cost, which is called coinsurance. Staying in network will mean you usually pay lower out of pocket costs than if you choose to go out of network.

Custom PPO Savings Two-Tier Embedded Deductible 2700/3000/5200

High-deductible health plans offer lower monthly premiums than our other PPO plans, but have a higher deductible. These plans qualify you for the option of opening a tax-advantaged HSA account to help save and pay for qualified medical expenses. Money added to an HSA is yours to keep and there is no use it or lose it penalty.
