Health Insurance Plans *
Medical: RHA offers two medical plan options. Prescription drug coverage and an allowance for vision reimbursement are included with both plans. RHA pays a portion of the premiums for single and dependent coverage if elected.
Dental: RHA pays a portion of premiums for single and dependent coverage if elected.
Transparency of Coverage Rule:
In 2020, the Department of Labor issued a regulation in regards to the Transparency of Coverage Rule. Among this transparency regulation, all non-grandfathered, group health plans must post and maintain their in and out-of-network provider costs on a publically accessible website file (in a JSON format).
The deadline has been extended until July 1, 2022.
