You're more likely to need legal services than to be hospitalized. Yet, while most people have medical insurance, they have no safety net to handle legal events in their life. With MetLaw®, you can obtain services from attorneys in much the same way as you do from the doctors who participate in your medical plan.
MetLaw provides access to a network of participating attorneys for help with a wide range of legal issues, including:
As a new hire, you can enroll within 31 days of your benefits eligible date. Outside of your new hire enrollment period, enrollment is limited to the company's annual enrollment period. $6.93 biweekly, via payroll deduction, covers you, your spouse/domestic partner and dependents.
Now you can get something even better with your legal insurance benefit. This benefit puts a team of attorneys on your side … ready whenever you need help on legal matters or financial issues. That means you can have an attorney draw up a Will. Have a lawyer defend you for a traffic matter. Even get a legal opinion on what to do about a neighbor’s fence that’s sitting on your property—and it’s all covered under your legal insurance benefit. Sound too good to be true? It’s not.
All Baystate and Baycare employees who work at least 16 hours/wk or BVNAH employees who work at least 15 hours/week.
You can enroll in this benefit during Baystate’s benefits open enrollment each Oct-Nov timeframe. If you are a new hire or have a “qualifying change in life status”, you can enroll within 15 days of your hire date.
Note about pre-existing matters: Legal plan members are encouraged to use the plan to resolve as many legal issues as possible even if they are pre-existing matters. The only pre-existing matters which cannot be covered under this plan are those for which the participant has retained an attorney before becoming eligible for plan benefits. This policy is necessary to protect the existing attorney-client relationship.
Please refer to the plan certificate for additional details.
You'll have access to a nationwide network of more than 14,000 participating attorneys from which to choose. Network Attorneys have an average of 25 years or more of legal experience and have met stringent selection criteria. If you stay within the network, covered legal services are provided with no additional attorney fees. You also have the flexibility to use an out-of-network attorney and get reimbursed for covered services according to a set fee schedule.
