APWU News Bulletin 21-2012, Oct. 19, 2012 | PDF
This Open Season, let the APWU Health Plan be your healthcare companion. The APWU Health Plan offers exclusive premiums for union members and innovative value-based benefits that provide members financial incentives to get and stay well. As a department of the APWU, the APWU Health Plan is the only plan that is designed specifically for the members of the union.
The plan offers two distinct options, comprehensive benefits, as well as a nationwide preferred provider organization (PPO) which makes finding a doctor simple.
The High Option (HO)
The High Option has been in existence since 1960 and over the years it has evolved into a solid benefits package that continues to offer a sensible alternative to other comparable plans. The High Option has a lower deductible and copay without a reduction in coverage. The High Option is sure to be a perfect fit for any lifestyle.
NEW for 2013:
Well Woman benefit that provides 100% coverage for a full range of in-network preventive services
The Consumer Driven Option (CDO)
The Consumer Driven Option is APWU Health Plan’s solution for inexpensive and comprehensive care. By making our members the primary decision-maker regarding the health care they receive and pay for, we limit the unnecessary usage that occurs and pass the savings on to the member.
NEW for 2013:
