Health Care Plus Program

TUPSSO is making a health plan available to members. This is a ACA-exempt plan that has cost-saving features that make this a great alternative to the expensive, uncapped ACA exchange plans.

SHARED HEALTH ALLIANCE health plans were created in response to the demand for affordable health coverage. Most people only use their health coverage for a few office visits a year, telemedicine, maybe a prescription or routine checkups and age appropriate health screenings. Shared Health Alliance has combined these features with a choice of limited $150K/$250K/$500K of catastrophic coverage (like an accident or heart attack that puts you into the hospital) using a partnership with Unity Healthshare.

What this does is provide people with the most common uses of their medical coverage, gives people a choice of the amount of coverage, and without the big price tag of unlimited coverage of an ACA health insurance plan. Having a Shared Health Alliance plan counts as required having health coverage under the ACA mandate.

Please consult the brochures and read to inform yourself if this is the right option for your needs. There are preexisting condition limitations. Many people need full cost ACA health insurance. Shared Health Alliance provides TUPSSO members and their staff an affordable option.

For those who want a PPO Health Insurance, Health Care Plus has that option as well.
These plans are not HMOs….but a PPO!! Health Care Plus provides its members to access to an association health insurance plan that allows a choice of deductible 1000/3000/5000 and uses the CIGNA network. There are options to add Gap coverage, Dental, Vision, and Lump Sum Critical Illness.

Members may enroll themselves, spouse and dependents. Employees of members of the National TUPSSO FOA may also apply. Applications are FULLY UNDERWRITTEN, and there are medical questions that must be answered. Applications can be denied for medical reasons. These prices are very competitive, and in many instances, coverage is superior and premiums are lower than full priced retail Affordable Care Act HMO plans.

This plan is proprietary to our Broker and its partners. If you have ever tried to find a direct billed PPO plan, you understand that this is a rare opportunity for National TUPSSO FOA members.

The National TUPSSO FOA enrollment portal is being constructed and it will be available soon.

The insurance broker/agency for NTUPSSO FOA is Reference Insurance and our contact broker is Sean Pfeiffer. Sean specializes in the association/union/non-payroll group benefits space. He has been in insurance for 14 years and resides in Dallas, TX. He is graduate of Sewanee: The University of the South and holds an Economics degree from that University.
