The contract to renew the Health Benefit Card plan for 2011, which gives Osage Nation members $500 for medical expenses, is close to completion and is expected to be complete before the end of the year, according to a prepared release from the Office of the Chiefs.

Details are being finalized for the contract renewal and all that remains is for MAA to provide signature approval of proposed amendments to the contract, said the release. The final approval is on schedule and will be completed prior to the previous contract’s expiration.

The $500 health benefit card does not allow a “roll over” of funds from one year to the next. When tribal members sign up for 2011 they will receive a maximum of $500.

Renewal forms will be mailed out from MAA and must be completed by those already participating in the plan to update beneficiary information.
