The Unique Approach of SWSCHP

To function successfully within our non-profit status, SWSCHP maintains no staff except for an Executive Director, who is responsible for the day-to-day management of a number of healthcare 'partners' to deliver service to our members.

Actively-employed members of the plan get their healthcare benefits through Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield. All of the major interactions that members need regarding Empire will take place through AliCare, our third party benefits administrator. There are numerous areas of this website that drive our active members to contact AliCare when they have specific questions about their healthcare, like claims management, finding a healthcare provider, etc. A separate AliCare account must be established by members.

Pharmacy Benefits are provided to active members by CVS/Caremark. Members must sign up for a CVS account to manage their pharmacy benefits.

Retiree members  of the plan get their healthcare benefits through the Aetna Medicare Advantage Plan. All of the major interactions that members need regarding the plan will take place with Aetna. There are numerous areas of this website that drive our active members to contact Aetna when they have specific questions about their healthcare, like claims management, finding a healthcare provider, etc. A separate Aetna account must be established by members.

Pharmacy Benefits are provided to active members by CVS/Silverscript. Members must sign up for a CVS account to manage their pharmacy benefits.
