All three dental plans offer low out-of-pocket costs for preventive care, as well as a choice of providers in Cigna’s dental network of dentists, endodontists, pediatric dentists, periodontists, orthodontists and other dental providers.
Prescription drug benefits come with all of the plans, with the exception of the two High Deductible Health Plans. For those two (HDHP) plans, the pharmacy benefits are embedded in the actual medical plans.

Vision Benefits are offered through Eye Med and come with all plans. For more information or to find a provider, call (866) 723-0596 or visit EyeMed’s website.
All our plans offer access to the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) through Cigna Behavioral Health, a free, confidential service that offers immediate help, referrals and online resources for a range of behavioral, family and care-giving, financial, health and other life issues. We offer a stand-alone EAP plan that parishes may elect to offer to their employees who opt out of medical benefits coverage. (The EAP is already included as part of every medical plan offering).
The Medical Trust health plans include a hearing discount plan, which provides discounts on hearing exams and supplies. For a listing of HearPO providers in your area, call HearPO at (888) 432-7464, or visit HearPO.
