What Coverages does the AHP Offer? 

The Plan offers Medical (18 different BCBS options), plus Vision and Dental, as well as Life and Disability benefits.

  • Plans 1 - 11 are PPO (Preferred Provider Organization) plans, with co-pays and lower deductibles.
  • Plans 12 - 16 are High-Deductible Plans (HDHPs) eligible for Health Savings Accounts (HSAs)
  • HIA Plans 1 & 2 are PPO plans with Health Incentive Accounts, which allow for a credit to the deductible for employees who take certain preventive measures.
  • Two Dental Plan options: Basic and Enhanced (includes orthodontia)
  • One Vision Plan through EyeMed.
  • Group Life/AD&D, Short Term Disability and Long Term Disability Plans are also available through Companion Life.

What's the Benefit to our Organization? 
  • Large Group Pricing for Small Organizations! We're able to bundle our nonprofit members together as if we were all one large employer.
  • Billing and Administration is consolidated for all benefits.  There’s a simplified enrollment/eligibility process to handle all new enrollments and changes including COBRA administration through Capstone Administrators.
Who's Eligible? 
  • Any 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that is a current member of Together SC and has at least two full-time employees may participate in the Plan.
  • In less than six months,  16 members have joined.

Current Together SC Health Plan Members

  • Organizations don't have to be a Together SC member to receive a proposal, but must join Together SC before enrolling in the Plan. Active membership must be maintained in order to remain eligible for the Plan.
What Are Others Saying?
  • Mary Black Foundation, with a staff of eight and working in Spartanburg joined this Summer. Molly Talbot-Metz, their president shared the following:
    Both our staff and the organization saw cost savings. For the first time, we can offer staff two options - a high deductible plan and a traditional plan similar to what we offered previously. We have consolidated vision, dental, and health into one plan with one plan/card that's is easier for staff and consolidated billing that's easier for us to administer. Our net annual savings is @ $5000.  
Who's Involved?
  • The Plan is overseen by the Together SC Group Insurance Trust (see bottom of page), a committee nominated by the Together SC Board of Directors, and elected by participating member organizations.
  • Marsh McLennan Agency is the Broker of Record, and will assist members in enrolling in the plan.
