Your health is a critical component to leading a fulfilling life whether fishing on Saturday or preaching on Sunday. Good health not only allows you to do the things you enjoy, it allows you to do them to your fullest potential. Sounds easy enough, doesn’t it? Yet todays healthcare environment is a complicated landscape with terms hard to understand (high deductible health plan), with a myriad of acronyms to keep straight (HSA, HRA, EOB) and costs that continue to rise. The West Ohio Conference understands these challenges, wants to walk with you through them, and seeks to provide a comprehensive plan for you and your eligible dependents.

Our current active plan is a high deductible health plan or HDHP. For all but preventive services, the deductible must be met before the plan begins to pay benefits. Attached to the HDHP is a health saving account or HSA which allows you to save pre-tax dollars for medically covered expenses. For more information please see the HSA tab. Our claims administrator and network provider is Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield.

 For retirees, we will continue with the Humana Medicare Advantage group plan for 2021. Beginning January of 2022, however, the Conference will be moving to a Health Reimbursement Account or HRA for retirees to choose the coverage that best meets their unique needs. Please see below for the Via Benefits Presentation.
