2021 Benefits: Summaries, rates and how to apply

 

What's Changing for 2021

  • To ensure that members have a high-quality, comprehensive benefit plan, and in response to member feedback, if you enroll in any of the Medical Trust's health plans, you will have access to a hearing aid benefit allowance:

Maximum benefit of $1,500 per ear every three years

Note: In order to offer our members a hearing aid benefit allowance in 2021, we will no longer be offering the Amplifon Hearing Aid device discount.

  • In response to COVID-19, effective March 1, 2020, the Medical Trust waived member cost shares for services received through our health plan carriers' telehealth platforms. The Medical Trust also removed plan exclusions to allow virtual visits with members' personal healthcare providers to be covered at the usual in-person offie visit cost share. Both of these provisions will be continued at least through December 31, 2021.
