Peace of mind for your family when it’s needed most
Friday, July 29, 2016
As a valued member of TeamCare, you have access to the best doctors, hospitals, and facilities in the nation to keep you and your family healthy. We take that commitment one step further with TeamCare’s Family Protection Benefit. This unique benefit provides your family five years of continued healthcare in the event of your death.
With most healthcare plans, benefits for the family end when the member dies. The only way to continue coverage is to make expensive COBRA self-payments. COBRA is the federal law that provides families or workers temporary continuation of health coverage that was lost due to certain life events like death or job loss.
Under the TeamCare Family Protection Benefit, your covered spouse and dependents will be eligible to continue to receive the same TeamCare benefits, in most instances, at no cost. If qualified for this generous benefit, you and your family must use TeamCare in-network doctors for all non-emergency medical care during the two-year period before your death.
TeamCare is always there when you need us. To learn more about the Family Protection Benefit, log in to view your Summary Plan Description document.
