AVMA members with medical insurance through the Group Health and Life Insurance Trust (GHLIT) recently received a letter announcing some important news about the insurance program. Even if you don’t currently have GHLIT insurance, you might want to read on, because the news could also benefit you.
The letter announced that the AVMA GHLIT C.A.R.E. Insurance Exchange/Marketplace, a private insurance exchange for AVMA members that will help you secure insurance coverage tailored specifically to your needs, is now open for business to all AVMA members.
The new exchange provides members with the tools to shop for, compare costs and benefits, and enroll in a medical plan that best meets your needs. There is an array of insurance options available from a growing list of top carriers – all of which have been chosen specifically for veterinarians. These plans create an exclusive line of insurance products to protect you, your family and your business through every stage of your life. The exchange also includes access to other AVMA GHLIT non-medical insurance products, and live customer support is available to answer questions regarding your unique coverage needs.
As always, the AVMA GHLIT is dedicated to providing you – our members – access to the best available insurance coverage on the market today. We are confident that this exchange will benefit you by providing access to a variety of plans and easing this transition. But we need your help! Please be sure to review the information at your earliest convenience, as your current GHLIT medical insurance coverage will end on Dec. 31, 2013. To ensure that you are covered on Jan. 1, 2014, you must enroll between Oct. 1 and Dec. 15, 2013.
As always, please feel free to contact the GHLIT. Member-service representatives are ready to assist you and to answer your questions about the exchange and your insurance needs.
