Highlights for 2023-2024
THE CHANGES WE’VE MADE HAVE BEEN MINIMAL. THE SAME AS LAST YEAR, YOU HAVE FOUR PLANS TO CHOOSE FROM:
- The Medical Mutual PPO (MMO PPO);
- The Medical Mutual PPO/Health Savings Account (MMO PPO/HSA);
- The SkyCare EPO plan (formerly named MetroSelect EPO) plan; and,
- The Medical Mutual MedFlex EPO plan.
There have been changes to the employee contributions for the plans. Please review the Benefits Insider newsletter for the new contribution amounts that are effective July 1, 2023.
The Medical Mutual PPO/HSA plan again offers an annual $500/employee and $1,000/family contribution to your health savings account.
Eligibility for the Everside Health program has been expanded. You are now eligible if you are enrolled in either the Medical Mutual PPO plan or the Medical Mutual PPO/HSA plan. Click HERE for details.
The Medical Mutual MedFlex EPO and Metro SkyCare EPO plans offer a great value in high quality healthcare. Even with an increase in the employee contributions for these plans, the premiums are still lower than the Medical Mutual PPO plan.
Telehealth services are an option for all plans but providers varies by plan. Check HERE for details.
The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides a wide range of confidential counseling services. See THIS PAGE to learn how to access this help for you and your family.
ARE YOU OR A PARENT ELIGIBLE FOR MEDICARE?
Medicare is the health insurance program run by the Federal Government. It is available to those 65 and older, those under 65 with certain disabilities, and those with end-stage renal disease. Personalized service is now available to you and your family members so you can choose the right Medicare coverage for your individual situation. The health plans available to active employees through The Catholic Diocese of Cleveland may or may not be the best option for you. Click HERE to learn more.
Flu season is here so it’s time to start thinking about getting your annual flu shot. Getting an annual flu vaccine is the first and best way to protect yourself and others from the flu.
Diocese Employees and their dependents are able to receive a flu shot at any CVS Pharmacy at no cost. Note that you should get your flu shot from your CVS pharmacist, not from a CVS Minute Clinic, as you could be assessed an administration charge for the shot.
New this year: If you are enrolled in one of our Diocesan health plans, you no longer need a voucher. Simply show your pharmacist your CVS/Caremark card. If you have misplaced your card, call 844-431-4882 to request a new card. If you are not enrolled in one of our health plans, you can still obtain vouchers from the Benefits Office at (216) 696-6525, ext. 5040 or e-mail [email protected].
We hope many of you take advantage of this easy opportunity to receive your annual flu vaccine.
