The College offers full-time faculty, counselors and academic advisors health insurance through Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS). Under the Educators Health Alliance (EHA) BCBS PPO plan, employees receive comprehensive health benefits and may choose in-network or out-of-network providers with each health care situation.
Employees share in the cost of medical services by paying out-of-pocket costs including office visit and prescription co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance amounts. The amount of cost share varies depending on the health care services and whether an in-network or out-of-network provider is utilized. To find an in-network PPO provider, go to nebraskablue.com and click "Find a Doctor"
New employees must enroll within 31 days of employment, and coverage becomes effective the first of the month following the beginning date of employment.
NOTE: Preventive services do not generally include services intended to treat an existing illness, injury or condition. Claims must include the appropriate diagnosis and procedure code to be paid at the 100% preventative benefits level.
