MOUNT VERNON — Knox County employees received a firsthand explanation of the new iHealth Wellness Program on Thursday afternoon at the Knox County Service Center. The county is providing this program as part of its health plan in a way of promoting wellness to its employees and keeping them well.
County agent Donna McNally welcomed all the county employees attending the brief seminar and introduced Medical Benefits administrator Janeen Andrews, who explained all the benefits and how the program will work.
“Our single focus is to improve your health,” said Andrews, who gave a summary of details in the county’s current health plan. This includes a $10 co-pay for in-network (Medical Mutual) office visits with a $100 deductible and a 90 percent co-insurance up to $5,000. Out-of-network visits would utilize no co-pay and an 80 percent co-insurance.
Generic prescription drugs have a $5 co-pay. Formulary drugs pay a maximum $75 co-pay for a 30-day supply. For non-formulary drugs, it is a maximum $150 co-pay for a 30-day supply. There is also a zero co-pay for a list of certain over-the-counter drugs.
