Member Benefit Highlight

Core Value plans allow you to gain control of your health care expenses while providing quality benefits to your employees. This is made possible by combining the cost lowering qualities of self-funding with a referenced based pricing plan. Core Value gives you the simplicity and savings you’re looking for. Core Value is referenced based pricing, meaning it pays providers on a multiple of the Medicare reimbursement rate (or other derived equivalent), regardless of the billed amount. This can reduce the amount paid for your members’ claims- which would save money for both you and your group’s members.

To find out if you qualify for a Core Value Plan and to obtain further information contact JerriLynn Cobb at for more information.

Amvac Chemical Corp.
Navigator SC termiticide/insecticide is a pre- and post-construction termite control product for professionals. Navigator SC is effective against a variety of subterranean termites, and protects the structure against future infestations. After termites pass through the treatment area, they transfer the non-repellent, active ingredient, fipronil, back to the nest. Navigator SC also protects against perimeter pests and invaders, including ants. Learn more at
