A NEW WAY
The Jefferson Health Plan (JHP) is dedicated to serving the
financial needs of your benefit program while responding to your employees'
needs for access to high quality care.
The Jefferson Health Plan enables eligible employers to provide
individually designed benefit programs to their employees while being able to
enjoy the cost-saving advantages of group purchasing through the
consortium. Simply put, JHP is able to provide a variety of benefits to
participating member organizations. Participating employers may choose to
fund any of the following customizable benefit plans:
• Medical Care Benefits
• Prescription Drug Benefits
• Dental Care Benefits
• Vision Care Benefits
• Life Insurance and Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance
• Voluntary Life Insurance Benefits
Individual employers have the freedom to design the benefit
plan(s) that best fit their unique needs and can alter those plan offerings
from time to time, as needs change.
The Jefferson Health Plan allows members to gain purchasing power
on par with that of much larger organizations by combining with other like
employers. Collectively, this purchasing coalition encompasses over 22,000
covered employees. This collaborative effort affords member organizations
the ability to deliver employer-specific benefit programs at the lowest
THE BENEFITS OF BETTER HEALTH CARE
We focus on plan design, local delivery of services, and local
hospitals and doctors you know, and then couple that with 21st Century tools
through our vendor partner arrangements. Add in a nonprofit organizational
model that puts you at the center of the equation by allowing you to self-insure
your benefit program, and we've got a winning recipe for health care services
The Jefferson Health Plan was first established in 1985 as a partially
self-insured health benefits program to serve public entities in Ohio and
afford them an opportunity to share in the benefits of better health
care. Recognizing the value of demonstrated Jefferson Health Plan
results, the Ohio legislature granted JHP express and exclusive authority to
begin working with public entities in other states. Today, with annual revenues exceeding $300 million
and invested assets exceeding $160 million, the Jefferson Health Plan provides
health care and related employee benefit programs to over 180 public employer
member organizations throughout the States of Ohio, Michigan and Tennessee
covering over 22,000 employees.
About 50% of the member organizations are school districts, while
the other 50% is comprised of cities, townships, port authorities, county
government employees, libraries, villages, etc. The Jefferson Health Plan
is organized and operates as a Council of Governments under Ohio Revised Code
Chapter 167 with membership open to political subdivisions within and outside of
the State of Ohio.
