The Chambers of Commerce Group Insurance Plan has a “Conversion Policy” called CONTINYOU that is available to employees who leave their employment and still wish to continue with a modest level of health and dental coverage. There is also the Retiree Plan for business owners and executives that offers a more comprehensive level of health and dental coverage along with Out-of-Country Medical Emergency Travel Insurance. Both of these polices can provide coverage for the lifetime of the insured.
Effective November 1, 2019, the Administrators of the Chambers Plan introduced a version of the Retiree Plan for retiring Employeeswho are age 50 or older. Retiring employees must have been employed with the firm for at least 5 years prior to their date of retirement and covered with Extended Health Care benefits with prescription drugs for at least 2 years prior to the date of retirement.
This new offering is built upon a single policy design incorporating the following coverage:
- 80% co-insurance on prescription drugs, to an annual maximum of $10,000;
- 80% co-insurance on paramedical services
- 100% co-insurance, 60 days of travel coverage; and
- 80% co-insurance on preventative and basic dental services; and 50% co-insurance on major dental services, up to a combined annual maximum of $750.
This coverage terminates at age 90, with the exception of travel coverage, which terminates at age 80.
