SEMA Show, Day Two: TIA offers health insurance option
Tire Industry Association (TIA) members now can access a selection of limited-benefit medical plans thanks to the association's new partnership with HM Insurance Group.
The HM Care Advantage plan is designed to help meet basic health care needs by providing fixed-payment amounts for unlimited physician office visits, insured prescription drugs, inpatient hospitalization, emergency care and diagnostic testing, according to TIA officials.
"The plan is guarantee-issue with no exclusions for pre-existing conditions," they add.
Lack of health insurance is the number-one concern expressed by TIA members, says TIA Executive Vice President Roy Littlefield.
"It is important that we provide options for our members that will help them to stay competitive. The ability to recruit and retain talented employees is critical, and adding a benefit such as HM Care Advantage is one more way for TIA to help our members succeed."
HM is a wholly owned subsidiary of Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield.
