The plans include choices from five different medical plans with national networks, giving members options to increase the savings potential for both employers and employees. The medical plans also include access to Teladoc, a national network of physicians available 24/7 to resolve issues through phone or video consultations.

The NTMA also offers ancillary plans for dental, life, vision and disability insurance. Members have access to multi-year rate guarantees with no participation requirements, and the NTMA projects a cost reduction for members.
