With COVA HealthAware, it pays to be healthy!

Administered by Aetna, this plan includes a Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA), which is designed to give you more control over your health benefit dollars and help pay your out‑of‑pocket expenses.

COVA HealthAware is a comprehensive benefits plan that includes:

  • Medical, behavioral health, pharmacy, dental, vision and hearing benefits
  • Coverage for in-network preventive medical, dental, vision and hearing care at 100 percent
  • Initial contributions to your HRA with opportunities to earn additional funds by completing incentives called “Do Rights”
  • Coverage for in-network benefits through a large national network
  • Coverage for out-of-network benefits (higher coinsurance, additional deductible and out-of-pocket maximum apply)
  • Combined medical, behavioral health and pharmacy deductible and out‑of‑pocket maximum
