Benefits at Your Fingertips

Ah, the joys of the technological age! You can get pretty much anything you need online these days — from buying furniture to getting groceries, it seems like there is nothing you can’t do with a few taps on your smartphone or tablet. And, when it comes to managing your benefits digitally, the ARTA Retiree Benefits Plan is no exception.

Manage Your Benefits With Ease

With the ARTA Members Health Care Account, everything you need to make the most of your benefits is at your fingertips. Wondering if a new medication you have been discussing with your doctor is covered? Just log in and visit Drug Enquiry to find out! Curious to know if a recent claim has been processed? Check out the Claims History feature. You will even find information about your level of benefit coverage, be able to print a new ARTA Benefits ID card and manage your contact and banking information. It really is that easy!

Tax Assistance

Another great feature of the ARTA Members Health Care Account is the ability to access your yearly Premium & Claims Summary no matter where you are in the world. As long as you have access to the internet, you are good to go! With tax season just around the corner — and many of you snowbirds heading to warmer climates for the winter — this access is vitally important. Just remember that your Premium & Claims Summary is simply meant to be a reference tool to help you reconcile your medical expense records in preparation for your income taxes. You should use your Explanation of Benefits Statements and pharmacy and other health-related expense receipts when calculating medical expense totals, as these are considered official tax receipts — your Premium & Claims Summary is not.

Your 2019 Premium & Claims Summary will be available on the ARTA Members Health Care Account in February 2020.

More Helpful Services

While the ARTA Members Health Care Account currently offers many great benefits to ARTA Retiree Benefits Plan members, there are even more useful services on the horizon. Over the past year, ARTA has been reviewing a number of services they could adopt to offer the convenience of online claims to its members. After careful consideration, they have decided to once again partner with us here at ASEBP to create a custom-built platform to allow members to submit claims online through their ARTA Members Health Care Account. We are excited to work on this project and look forward to being able to update you all once we get closer to a launch date.
