Health Fund

Home ›› Health


Your medical plan, provided to you by the Trust Fund, is a preferred provider organization (PPO) plan. The Fund uses Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield’s PPO network, which gives you access to health care providers nationwide and a hospital network servicing southern Nevada.

Our Self-Funded Plan
Your health benefits are valuable and affordable. However, the cost of health care rises every year. We have a self-funded plan, which means that the Fund—not Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield—is responsible for paying claims. While you should always feel comfortable getting the high-quality care you deserve, the Fund relies on you to make good decisions about where you receive care.

Here are some tips to limit the impact of health care costs for yourself and for the Fund:

  • Visit in-network providers. Doctors, hospitals, and other medical facilities in the Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield network charge our members discounted rates. Out-of-network care is covered, but it costs you and the Fund more.
  • Go to the right place for care. Flu-like symptoms don’t feel good, but they generally don’t require you to go to the emergency room. You don’t need an urgent care facility for a cold.
  • Get prior authorization for your care. For medical prior authorization, contact Nevada Health Solutions before receiving diagnostic tests or outpatient surgeries. In the event of an inpatient hospital admission, contact Nevada Health Solutions as soon as you can. Nevada Health Solutions will visit you during your inpatient stay to act as your patent advocate and will assist with your transition of care when you leave the hospital. The can also assist you with your treatment plan and handle provider issues. For prior authorization of behavioral health care (mental health), contact Harmony Health Care. They can review and approve your upcoming inpatient or outpatient treatment and perform ongoing reviews to ensure the appropriateness of your care. Please remember: You must contact Nevada Health Solutions or Harmony Health Care before receiving care, as the Plan might not cover your care without prior authorization.
  • In emergencies, all bets are off. Go to the closest emergency room if you’re experiencing a life-threatening medical issue. Your care will be covered at in-network rates, even at an out-of-network facility.

No Surprises Act

The No Surprises Act took effect on January 1, 2022. This law protects you from balance billing if you get treated by an out-of-network provider from an in-network hospital or emergency room. Balance billing happens when an out-of-network provider charges you the difference between the total cost of your care and what your health plan agreed to pay.

Sometimes, in-network emergency rooms and hospitals employ out-of-network doctors. In these cases, you might receive care from an out-of-network provider, through no fault of your own. Also, you might not have time to choose between an in- or out-of-network provider in a medical emergency. The No Surprises Act is designed to ensure that you aren’t balance billed if you receive care under these circumstances. It protects you from paying extra when the circumstances are beyond your control.

You should still use network providers whenever possible. Visit your insurance carrier’s website to find a list of network providers near you:

If you believe that you’ve been wrongly billed, contact the Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA) at (866) 444-3272 or through their website.

Prescription Drugs

Along with your medical coverage, you have access to prescription drug coverage through Sav-Rx, which offers you convenient and affordable access to the medications you need.

Prescription drugs are only covered when filled at network Sav-Rx retail pharmacies or the Sav-Rx mail order facility. Just present your ID card at a network pharmacy to receive discounted rates on your medications.

Network Retail Pharmacy (30-day supply)
Sav-Rx Mail Order Facility (90-day supply)
$7 copay
$14 copay
Preferred brands
$30 copay
$60 copay
Non-preferred brands
$50 copay
Not covered
Brand with generic alternative
$7 copay plus cost difference between brand and generic
$14 copay plus cost difference between brand and generic
The amount you pay out of pocket for prescriptions depends on a few things. Here’s how you can limit your out-of-pocket costs:

  • Fill your prescriptions at Sav-Rx network pharmacies. Prescriptions filled at out-of-network pharmacies aren’t covered.
  • Use the Sav-Rx mail order facility for prescription drugs that you take on a long-term basis. In many cases, you’ll get a 90-day supply of your medication for the price of two 30-day supplies.
  • When possible, take generic versions of the drugs prescribed to you.

Sav-Rx separates drugs into three categories: generic, preferred brand, and non-preferred brand. Generic drugs are lower-cost, chemically equivalent alternatives to more expensive brand-name drugs. Preferred brand drugs are brand-name drugs that Sav-Rx covers at discounted rates. Non-preferred brand drugs aren’t discounted as much and cost you the most out of pocket.

The last category, brand with generic alternative, refers to a prescription you fill for a brand-name drug when a generic alternative was available. You’re responsible for a copay plus the full cost difference between the brand-name drug and the generic alternative.

Keeping your teeth and mouth healthy is essential to your overall health. You become eligible for dental benefits through the Health Fund at the same time you become eligible for medical benefits.


The Health Fund has an agreement with LIBERTY Dental Plan. When you receive care from dentists who participate in the LIBERTY Dental Plan network, you pay less. You can receive care from out-of-network dentists, but you’ll pay the difference between the dentist’s usual and customary fee and the amount that the Plan covers.

Preventive care from in-network dental providers is 100% covered with no cost to you. Some basic services are also fully covered when you visit in-network dentists.

For a complete list of services, in-network copays, and out-of-network Plan payments, see the Liberty Dental Schedule of Benefits.
