Rensselaer-Columbia-Greene Health Insurance Trust Report Card

Please find attached the Rensselaer-Columbia-Greene Health Insurance Trust Report Card.  This newsletter has some very valuable and important information that is definitely worth reading.  I know we are all busy preparing for the holidays, but perhaps during the holiday break you can find a few moments to take a look at this six-page letter that details all that has been happening at the trust and what it means for you.  I can guarantee that even the healthiest of members will find valuable information in this letter.

For instance, did you know that the trust now has a benefit called TeleMedicine?  You don’t even need to leave the comfort of your own home to visit a doctor, and the service is available 24/7 for a WIDE variety of conditions.  It’s very easy to get started – just visit them online or download the app. Take a look at page 5 of the newsletter for more details.

For those members that are covered under BlueShield of NENY, your coverage has expanded!  Massage therapy, routine podiatry, and acupuncture are now covered!  See page 5 of the newsletter for more information.

Also available to BlueShield members is a program called Health Advocate.  The Health Advocate Program is available to both members AND their families.  It provides hands-on support for a variety of health and well-being issues; it is compassionate, confidential help that is available 24/7.  This is a value added service that provides unlimited access to you and your eligible family members.  At the annual Stakeholders Meeting in November I heard a story about how one member found this assistance to be invaluable when managing care for his sick mother.  This program is not specifically detailed in the newsletter, but you can obtain more information about Health Advocate by calling 800-359-5465; emailing answers@HealthAdvocate.com; or visiting HealthAdvocate.com/healthnow.
