Sevierville – Following up on the recent launch of the Sevier First Smart Card Health Plan, the Sevier County Economic Development Council (SCEDC) today announced the details of a countywide gathering about the program. The event will include a light continental breakfast and is scheduled for 8:30-9:30 am Wednesday, May 9th at the Conference Center at River Plantation, 1004 Parkway in Sevierville. This informational meeting will feature representatives from SCEDC, Mountain Hope Good Shepherd Clinic, the Food City Pharmacy, and others involved in making the plan a reality.
"We are extremely encouraged by the amount of interest the Sevier First Smart Card has received since its announcement," said Sevier County Mayor Larry Waters.
SCEDC Executive Director Allen Newton added, "This event will help us address some of the questions employers, community leaders, and the public may have about the program. We encourage anyone interested in learning more about the plan to attend."
The Sevier First Smart Card Health Plan is a low-cost, limited benefit health care option available to all Sevier County employers. Under this program, participating businesses would establish tax deductible Health Reimbursement Accounts (HRA) for eligible employees. Enrollees may then use their Smart Card to receive primary health care services at the Mountain Hope Good Shepherd Clinic in Sevierville for a low $10 co-pay, as well as sizable discounts on prescription drugs at the Food City Pharmacy.... read the rest of the story by Subscribing now.
