JIB Medical looks forward to serving your family’s health care needs. All participants in the Pension Hospitalization and Benefit Plan (PHBP) are eligible to use its services, as detailed in the Summary Plan Description for the PHBP.
JIB Medical sees patients who come to the facility for primary care as well as patients who have outside doctors. For those patients who have a private doctor primarily managing their healthcare, JIB Medical doctors will add all they can and work with the other doctor(s) as the patient wishes. Of course, all findings are available to the patient and any other doctor the patient designates and releases information to under HIPAA.
There are no copays for non-acute care medical services performed at JIB Medical.
Effective October 1, 2016, a $5 co-payment will be collected by JIB Medical for acute care visits*. If such visit results in an x-ray study at JIB Medical, an additional $5 co-payment will be collected. The maximum number of co-payments per visit will not exceed two (2).
*This co-payment applies to both active and non-Medicare retired Participants and all eligible dependents. This copayment does not apply to visits to and services provided by the JIB Optical Department.
If the patient is referred by a JIB Medical physician to an outside specialist on the JIB Medical Approved Provider Referral List, the first visit (only) has no co-pay. This applies only to the first clinical visit with a doctor, not to any referrals for testing (such as radiology and others).

CardioPrevention Program (CPP)
• Is a unique program created to reduce risk of cardiovascular disease. If a patient wants to add the CPP to the annual exam, it is important to request it in advance.
• As extensive as the CPP is, for the patient the only noticeable difference is a harmless and painless sonogram of the arteries in the neck. The additional labs and exam do not require anything extra of the patient.

Follow-up visits for ongoing care from previous visits, including acute and chronic conditions, discussing results, ongoing preventive care and others.
