A Message from the WITA Executive Board
The Trustees of the NYSUT Member Benefits Catastrophe Major Medical (CMM) Insurance Trust are offering an open enrollment opportunity for the CMM Plan from September 8, 2023, to October 13, 2023, with an effective date of January 1, 2024. You can learn more by registering for an upcoming informational webinar at the following link - https://memberbenefits.nysut.org/program-service/insurance/catastrophe-major-medical/cmm-open-enrollment-webinars.
The CMM Plan offers supplemental coverage that a NYSUT member and their eligible family members may need by providing benefits for eligible expenses that their basic plan does not fully cover (once the out-of-pocket deductible has been satisfied). The CMM Plan also offers benefits for home health care and long-term facility care and includes a Critical Illness benefit (as of January 1, 2023) that pays a one-time $1,000 lump sum in the event that a covered participant is diagnosed with a critical illness.
During this open enrollment period, NYSUT in-service members have the opportunity to enroll themselves (and any eligible dependents); current participants also have the opportunity to enroll any eligible family members who are not already enrolled.
