MASA MTS (Medical Transport Solutions)

Each year the predictability of the number of emergent and non-emergent transports in a given group is relatively up and down like a roller coaster. MASA MTS provides an affordable solution to close this crucial gap. The rates are $10 per employee per month for the Emergent Plus plan and if employees want to upgrade to the Platinum plan it is an additional $25 or (total $35 monthly).

INFORMATION SHEETS

THERE'S AN APP FOR THAT!

 

Our Health, Dental and Vision providers each have apps available for download.

                 

 

Our third-party administrator, Alliant, has created an employee benefit app called BEN-IQ.  The app provides an overview of what the County offers, what services and procedures are covered, annual deductibles, and includes a cost of coverage calculator.  Look for the little Einstien and download the app.
