Health Insurance

Employees and their eligible dependents may participate in the Town of Brunswick's health insurance plan. The Town of Brunswick offers an 85%/15% (pre-tax) split for all health insurance options, which include: Employee Only; Employee-Child(ren); Employee-Spouse or Domestic Partner (imputed income applies to the DP Plan) and Employee-Family. Deductions are made on a biweekly basis.

Employees have 60 days from their date of hire or qualifying event to enroll. Coverage begins on the first day of the month following enrollment. Open enrollment (a yearly opportunity to join without a qualifying event) is held during November/December of each year with an effective date of coverage of January 1st.

Maine Municipal Employees Health Trust

Brunswick offers health insurance through the Maine Municipal Employees Health Trust. The Heath Trust has entered into an agreement with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield as the insurance carrier. The Comprehensive Point of Service Plan (POS-C) requires that each covered member select a Primary Care Physician (PCP). Subject to certain rules, benefits are paid at a higher level of coverage and many services are covered at between 80 to 100% after a $15 co-pay to encourage wellness and preventative care.

Visit the Anthem website to change your Primary Care Physician (PCP), search the online directory for network physicians, check the status of a claim, and much more.
