Health Benefits

AFT + has introduced the Limited Supplemental Medical Plan (LSMP), a new voluntary benefit designed specifically for AFT members and eligible dependents who are looking for alternative methods to help pay for their healthcare costs.

Limited Supplemental Medical Plan is a reimbursement program offering a combination of limited medical benefits and a fully insured prescription plan for generic drugs. There are no pre-existing condition limitations, no deductibles, no coordination with other health insurance plans and no medical underwriting.

The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) is pleased to offer its members limited benefit medical insurance from Symetra Life Insurance Company. These offerings are designed to provide limited benefit medical coverage for those who usually go without medical insurance — part-time, hourly, seasonal and temporary workers; it can also be used to supplement other medical insurance. Within the two plans being offered, benefits can include doctor’s office visits, X-rays and hospital stays — and can be extended to eligible dependents. An additional feature is the prescription drug benefit that provides generic drugs for a $10 co-pay (30-day supply).
