New Local Health Plan for Small Businesses
On January 1, 2015, Pekin Hospital and Pekin Insurance® formed a partnership to create a local health plan to serve the health care needs of their employees. This plan is now available to all local businesses with less than 100 employees!
Why a local health plan?
Pekin Hospital and Progressive Health Network have over 300 credentialed physicians and specialists and can provide more than 80% of all necessary health care services.
Pekin Hospital is an award-winning community hospital.
Pekin Insurance is a highly rated health insurance provider ranking in the top 15% of Life and Health insurance companies nationwide based on premiums written and rated at A- (Excellent) by A.M. Best.
The goal—create a health plan that:
Delivers excellent value to employees by reducing out-of-pocket expenses through lower deductibles and copays (and meets all Affordable Care Act requirements).
Provides greater access to both primary care providers as well as specialists.
Offers the combined management expertise of medical professionals through Pekin Hospital and insurance professionals through Pekin Insurance.
How does the plan work?
The plan offers access to providers based upon a three (3) tiered platform:
Tier 1 – Pekin Hospital and Progressive Health Network—This tier offers the lowest deductibles, copays, and overall out-of-pocket.
Tier 2 – Unity Point Health Methodist—Services provided at this level are still paid using the lowest deductibles and copays as long as the service is NOT available from a tier 1 provider.
Tier 3 – Out-of-Network—Services provided via this tier will receive the highest deductibles, copays, and overall out-of-pocket expenses.
