Cancer and intensive care insurance is available to all benefit-eligible employees. Coverage is not available to Other Personal Services (OPS) employees. Employees pay the full premium amount on a pre-tax basis. Employees have 60 days from their date of hire to enroll. Plan changes are only allowed during the annual open enrollment or as a result of an approved qualifying status change.
This insurance covers the costs for cancer treatment that the basic health insurance does not cover.
Each option pays a set amount for surgery and other related treatments.
In addition, each plan offers a first occurrence benefit which is a lump-sum payment made directly to the insured at the time the cancer is diagnosed. The plan also provides assistance towards the cost of family transportation and lodging. The insured must be cancer-free at the time of enrollment.
This insurance provides a daily benefit for each day the insured is confined to the hospital intensive care unit for medical reasons.
