Overview

The Delaware Valley Health Trust provides comprehensive healthcare coverage to over 23,000 public entity employees and their families throughout Pennsylvania and Delaware.  Our risk-sharing pool combines the advantages and flexibility of self-insurance with the safety and predictability of a fully insured program. Since 1999, Health Trust members have enjoyed long-term premium stability, superior member service, first-class claims adjudication, and a wide array of exclusive value-added benefits anchored by robust wellness programs.  Even better, expert trust management has consistently kept average rate renewals in the single digits while simultaneously dedicating over $73 million to the membership since 2004 through our Rate Stabilization Fund.  Premiums have been further reduced by over $25 million through application of multi-trust discounts. The Health Trust is over 160 members strong and growing.

A New Way of Thinking about Health Coverage

If you manage a public entity and have grown frustrated with commercial market premium swings or broker-sponsored programs designed to generate fees and commissions, we can help.   Allow us to match your existing plan or customize a new cost-effective offering that caters to the specific needs of your organization.  Consider our Workers’ Compensation Trust and/or Property & Liability Trust, too, and take full advantage of a multi-trust discount that makes rates even more attractive.

    How to obtain free COVID-19 tests through CVS Pharmacy:

    Effective February 17, 2022, CVS Pharmacy offers Aetna members who are enrolled in an Aetna Rx plan two options to obtain COVID-19 OTC tests through CVS Pharmacies with no upfront cost.

    Option 1. Convenient Online Ordering: Using the CVS Pharmacy digital point-of-sale (POS) solution, members can search for available OTC tests across 7,100 CVS Pharmacy locations, enter their pharmacy benefit, and place an order for pick up. The online ordering process is simple:

    • Log onto www.aetna.com and click “Get Test Kits & Reimbursements”
    • On the next screen, click “At-home test kits from CVS Pharmacy”.  You will be re-directed to a CVS website.
    • Follow the prompts to pick up in-store or get delivery in 1 to 4 days.  Note: A user log in is required.  You will be prompted to set up an account with CVS.
    • Place the order for in store pick-up or mail delivery.

    Option 2. CVS Pharmacy in Store Pick Up: Members can walk into their local CVS Pharmacy and obtain in stock OTC tests at no cost at the pharmacy counter. If a member asks to use their pharmacy benefit for coverage of OTC tests at the CVS retail check-out counter, store staff will redirect the member to the pharmacy counter and let them know about the online ordering option for future needs.

    OTC tests purchased on or after February 17, 2022, can be reimbursed for the cost of the test (shipment costs are excluded) or $12 per test, whichever amount is lower. Eight (8) OTC tests are covered per enrollee or covered dependent every 30 days. For members with Aetna pharmacy benefits, you can submit a claim for reimbursement by logging onto www.aetna.com.

    Note: OTC tests used for return to work or school, or recreational purposes are not covered unless required by state law.  Lab-based PCR home collection kits are not covered.

    Additional resources: Individuals can also obtain four (4) free tests through COVIDTESTS.GOV. These tests do not count towards the minimum benefit of eight (8) tests per member per 30 days.

Testimonials

As both an administrator for the Township and a member of the plan itself, I can personally attest to the value added benefits that the Wellness program bring. I’ve learned tips and tricks from all of the webinars I’ve attended, lowered my cholesterol thanks to my biometric screening and received money just by being proactive regarding my health. It’s a complete win for everyone involved and I cannot say enough great things about the program.

Testimonials

The Health and Wellness Team at the Delaware Valley Health Trust is exceptional! The Trust has numerous resources that focus on all aspects of health – physical, mental, preventative, and environmental. The Borough has benefited greatly from wellness programs like annual biometric screenings,  health incentives, and the development of an employee wellness and fitness room in the Borough of Conshohocken Administrative Building. We could not have spearheaded that initiative without access to the resources available to Health Trust Members. For the Borough, having access to these pivotal resources has helped encourage and support a healthier lifestyle for all our employees. More importantly, membership in the Trust has enabled the Borough to take concerted steps towards fully developing an internal culture of health and wellness at our workplace.
