The Relief Fire Medical Plan is designed for firefighters by firefighters. It is the most comprehensive PPO Medical Plan available for our firefighter families. Unlike other medical insurance plans, our Relief Fire Medical Plan seeks to provide greater consideration in areas widely utilized by our firefighters and their families.
A few examples of what makes the Relief Fire Medical Plan unique and exceptional:
- An appeals process conducted by firefighters for benefits not normally covered;
- An in-house medical claims team available to answer and assist with your questions.
California members have access to the Anthem Blue Cross network of doctors and hospitals, while members residing outside of California utilize the Blue Cross/Blue Shield (Blue Card®) network.
As a self-funded plan, the Relief Association offers additional services, such as a high quality prescription drug plan and a Vision plan. As a self-funded plan we are able to render the best possible benefits to our firefighters and their families. Click here for information regarding premiums and additional details.
