New benefits for CEC members Cash rewards, free dental, chiropractic & more


T


he new year welcomes several exciting new benefits from Co-op Connections. One of the major changes is the new My VIP Savings


program, which gives electric co-op members the chance to earn cash back on many online purchases.


To participate, members should go to the Co-op Connections homepage at www. connections.coop, and click on one of the My VIP Savings links. First-time users will be prompted to establish an account, and then it’s on to shop at more than 1,000 merchants, including Apple, Best Buy and Wal-Mart.


Members must enter a company’s website through the My VIP Savings link to earn cash rebates, the amounts of which vary by merchant. A co-op member can request a check once he or she earns a minimum of $25 in cash back rewards.


Next on the list of new Connections benefits is the Healthy Savings Discount program. Healthy Savings offers deep discounts for chiropractic, dental and vision care, as well as lab work and hearing aids.


“We felt the dental benefit was the perfect program to add to the Co-op Connections Card,” said Kenda Hoffman, vice president of client benefits at New Benefits, Touchstone Energy’s strategic partner. She cited a recent report that nearly one in three Americans lacks dental insurance.


Through Co-op Connections, Humana Dental Access offers discounts to co-op members of up to 40 percent on most services at some 100,000 providers nationwide.


Coast to Coast Vision will enable co-op members to save on eyewear at national chains including LensCrafters and Target.

There are also discounts for contact lenses and laser eye surgery.


“If a member has vision insurance they can use that insurance until it’s exhausted, and then use the discount,” Hoffman said.


To take advantage of the new benefits, co- op members will need to show their care providers a new card. Until new plastic cards can be issued, Choctaw Electric members are urged to download the temporary Healthy Savings discount card at http://www.nbdrugcard.com/ touchstone/, or clip out the card that is printed on page 8 of this issue.
