Supplemental Medical

Overview and Eligibility
Supplemental medical plans provide cash payments in the event of a significant unexpected medical expense. The plans are portable so you can continue your coverage at the same cost even if your employment ends. You will be billed directly by Transamerica for the full cost of coverage (not through payroll contributions). You must enroll within 30 days of your eligibility date. If you don’t, you’ll miss the one-time opportunity to enroll at group rates.
