On 1 July 2020, Empire introduced a new Pharmacy Program called ‘Home Delivery Program’. The Program allows that maintenance or long-term medication are conveniently delivered to plan participants’ home by mail or at CVS. Why was this benefit introduced? Below are the three important reasons for choosing this program:
Our health insurance plans are funded by our organisations and each of us. By keeping our medical expenses under control, we contribute to the long-term sustainability of the plans. Besides partially funding our health plan, we can also help keep our plan sustainable by reducing our medical expenses to a minimum. This benefits everyone enrolled in the plan. The lower the total bill, the lower our out-of-pocket expenses will be. And the lower our out-of-pocket expenses, the longer we can benefit from reimbursements before our coverage ceiling is met.
The 2020 Annual Insurance Campaign ( “Campaign” ) for all Health Insurance Plans administered by the United Nations Headquarters will be held from 1 to 30 June 2020. The Campaign is the annual opportunity for the eligible active staff to enrol, make changes to their existing coverage, add and remove eligible dependents and terminate the coverage in one of the following health insurance plans: Aetna, Empire Blue Cross, Cigna US Dental, HIP & the UN Worldwide plan. Where can I find the presentation of the online information session?
Did you know that your child may be eligible for coverage under a UN insurance programme until the end of the calendar year in which your child attains the age of 25? All UN insurance programmes allow for this, provided that your child is not married or full-time employed. If your child is in the age group of 21 – 25 and is neither full-time employed nor married, your child will be covered under the medical insurance until 31st December of the year in which he or she turns 25.
We are pleased to announce that starting today, 1 April 2020, the UN and Cigna will offer Cigna Global Telehealth to all staff and their eligible family members covered under the UN Medical Insurance Plan (MIP). In addition to Telehealth being available to more than 57,500 UN Worldwide Plan members, all 50,000 UN MIP members will be able to talk to doctors anytime, from anywhere, free of charge.
