Medical Benefits

The Manatee YourChoice Health Plan is the self-funded medical, dental and health management plan for the employees and their eligible dependents of Manatee County Government, including all of the Constitutional Agencies. What does Self-Funded or Self-Insured mean? It means Manatee County Government, through their own Health Plan "Manatee YourChoice", uses their own plan design and pays for all health care directly instead of paying an insurance company to handle it. Although the Plan was created and designed by the Employee Benefits Division and is managed by the Employee Health Benefits Manager, the plan hires a "Third Party Administrator" (Aetna) to process claims, provide customer service support to members, and to run the Provider Network.

The YourChoice Health Plan has a very unique model that provides on-site, individualized and personalized clinical resources for the employees. The clinical staff who support the Health Plan include Registered Nurse Case Managers, Clinical Pharmacist, Wellness/Fitness Coaches, Registered Dietitian and Behavioral Health Staff, all working as an integrated multi-disciplinary team under the direction of the County.
