These plans are available exclusively to Sevier County businesses and provide benefit-rich group health insurance plans while helping employers hold down costs.
The new and improved Sevier First plans are available to groups with at least two employees and offer both medical and pharmacy coverage. The plans are made possible through a unique partnership with Fort Sanders Sevier Medical Center, Cariten Healthcare and the Sevier County Economic Development Council. With Sevier First plans, group members will be able to access a higher level of benefits at Fort Sanders Sevier Medical Center, including the new, state-of-the art $120 million facility to be completed in 2009, while retaining access to the complete network of Covenant Health hospitals and all other Cariten network hospitals.
