Full CT Body Scan Benefit Change
The current benefit for the Full Body Scan, for covered employees, spouses and retirees will remain in effect for the 2014 plan year with only a change in the vendor. Effective January 1, 2014 the current provider Wellness Associates of Florida will no longer be the contracted provider for the CT Body Scan.
The Benefits Fund is in the process of installing a state of the art 64 slice General Electric CAT scanner. The current projected date for the CT to be up and running is February 2014. We are asking that any members planning on utilizing the benefit for elective evaluation to wait and schedule at the Health & Wellness Center.
Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call our office and speak to Mike Sedgwick or Rick Rhodes.
