The Funds provides comprehensive medical, prescription drug, and vision care services to its beneficiaries as well as numerous health and wellness programs, such as diabetes management and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) education. Field health staff also conduct outreach to beneficiaries in their homes through visits and telephone calls.
The Funds’ health programs address three principal areas:
- Accessibility. Maximize beneficiary access to medically necessary, high quality health care.
- Quality. Provide the highest attainable level of quality health care to all beneficiaries.
- Cost. Administer a cost-effective program of care coordination and management that conserves resources and uses health care revenues to provide the highest levels of service to beneficiaries.

All final eligibility and payment decisions, however, must be made according to the language of the actual plan document, which is the sole controlling document over the plan.
