There are some benefits that don’t show up in an insurance plan book. They are carrier “add-ons” to all the plans they offer. These can take the form of everything from discounts on popular non-covered programs to additional services. Below are some of the additional programs offered by Trust carriers. Click on the links to find out more!

Regence/Asuris Advantages: Regence and Asuris have partnered with various providers to offer discounts on a wide variety of health-related products and services including hearing aids, fertility, pet care and more.

Kaiser Permanente: Kaiser has recently rolled out a program called ChooseHealthy to offer discounts on equipment and services for members.

Vision Service Plan: VSP has discounts for many eye-related items, but members are also eligible for “extra” discounts including hearing aids and the free VSP SimpleValues program.

The Standard: Travel assistance is bundled into the basic life insurance benefit. The services are free to the employee or any member of an employee’s family and includes pre-trip assistance as well as help during a trip (finding medical care, legal assistance, emergency evacuation, document replacement, and repatriation of remains).

ComPsych: People most associate the EAP with counseling benefits. While this is true, ComPsych also provides other services as well as multiple discount programs. To find out what’s available, log into Guidance Resources (Web ID trusteap71) and click on “Discounts” under the More… link at the top of the page.
