Health Net and Safeguard Insurance Benefit endorsed by CSFEWBC
The CSFA and CSFEWBC Boards responded to CSFA Members' requests by developing an exciting member health insurance benefit. Health Net's insurance options have been selected specifically for CSFA Members and their families by firefighter focus groups.
The CSFEWBC and our endorsed health insurance broker, the Anderson-Shea Insurance Agency, recommends these affordable quality health insurance options for Volunteers, Retired Members, and dependents of Career Firefighters to fit each individual's specific needs and budget.
· Value Net: Each Individual applies for this coverage on their own. A major medical plan with a $4,000 deductible and a maximum of $7,500 out-of-pocket per year. This is a great choice for young, healthy firefighters who are looking for major health coverage for an affordable monthly price.
· Optimum Advantage HSA: $2,500 single/$5,000 family deductible with most medical expenses paid in full after the deductible is met. Deductible waived, but a co pay applies for annual routine physicals. Use of a Health Savings Account allows you to put money away tax-free to use for your deductible. Great coverage for firefighters and their dependents.
· HMO 40: HMO Plan that is available in most parts of the state. $1500 in-hospital deductible $3000 out-of-pocket max for single, $6000 for a family. This is one of the only plans that includes maternity. Premiums will be higher due to services that are provided for the $40 co-pay, but this is the best overall protection that we offer.
