The Health Insurance Plans for Arizona Cities and Towns (“HPACT”) is an Employee Benefits Program for Cities, Towns and Municipalities. HPACT is administered through Valley Schools Employee Benefits Trust (“VSEBT”), an Arizona public entity pool, originally created for public school districts.
- You may already have a provider of some services that you are satisfied with and do not wish to change.
- With HPACT, you can get quotes from all our preferred providers, and you choose which to select.
- You may choose one service, two, or all at your sole discretion.
- Membership in HPACT is like holding a Costco card. You choose which products to buy at bulk/wholesale prices but you can shop at other stores as well.
- With HPACT, let us show you potential savings, and then you decide what providers are best for you and your employees.
On your behalf, Valley Schools will:
- Evaluate medical and pharmacy programs for benefit and cost improvement
- Evaluate all non-medical plans (dental, life, flex, vision etc.) for benefit and cost improvement
- Provide all incumbent providers renewal services with alternative provider options
