BOWIE, Md. (Oct. 27, 2005) — The Tire Industry Association has unveiled a new health insurance program, “TIA-Care,” through the New Jersey-based health benefit administrator Triveris.
By integrating medical care management and claims processing, as well as stressing wellness programs among plan members, TIA-Care should offer TIA members with more than 15 employees high-quality heath care while keeping premium costs down, said TIA Executive Vice President Roy Littlefield. “You get credit for going to physicals,” he said.
For members with fewer than 15 employees, a “mini-med” plan is available and more traditional plans are available to members who want them, Mr. Littlefield added.
Representatives from Triveris will be available in the TIA booth at the upcoming SEMA Show in Las Vegas to explain the TIA-Care plan, according to an association press release.
