GLOVERSVILLE, NEW YORK (March 15, 2017) – Nathan Littauer Hospital & Nursing Home is proud to announce their partnership with Martin’s Point Health Care, now offering US Family Health Plan, a TRICARE Prime option available to eligible military beneficiaries.
“This is great news for our dedicated military families,” said Cheryl McGrattan, Littauer VP of Marketing and Communications. “I’m happy to say Littauer, together with Martin’s Point is now offering a high-quality, affordable option for our deserving Veterans in the Fulton County area.”
The Martin’s Point US Family Health Plan is a highly rated TRICARE Prime® plan for active-duty family members and military retirees and their families (to age 65).
“This makes sense for Littauer because we cover such a wide geography in Fulton County with eight primary & specialty care centers throughout, one in Hamilton County and one soon to open in Montgomery County,” added McGrattan. “This offers complete and convenient coverage to local military and their families close to home.”
“We offer excellent benefits at no or low cost and a wide network of civilian doctors in our area,” said Martin’s Point Health Benefits Specialist, Keith Prairie, NC1, USN (Ret.) “Members can rest easy knowing they’ve made a confident decision along with 46,000 others.”
TRICARE Prime is a “managed care” health plan with a network of local, civilian health care providers and facilities. Members choose a network primary care provider (PCP) who provides most of their care and coordinates referrals to specialists and hospitals. Benefits include coverage for routine doctor visits, specialty care, hospitalizations, urgent and emergent care, preventive health care services and prescriptions. Covered services that are provided by network PCPs, specialists, and health care facilities are covered at no or low cost. (The US Family Health Plan also has a Point of Service option that allows members to seek care outside the network, but at higher cost.)
With the Martin’s Point US Family Health Plan, Veterans get complete coverage with many extras, including:
- No enrollment fees for active-duty family members; low TRICARE Prime enrollment fees for retirees and their families
- No deductibles or cost shares for preventive services in network
- Large network of civilian doctors in your community
- Value-added services like discounts for eyewear, hearing aids, and fitness centers
- Easy referrals to specialists—your primary care provider will handle the paperwork
- Annual physicals, laboratory tests, prenatal and postnatal maternity care at no additional cost
- Excellent health care and customer service
