The Medical Trust Disclaimer
Church Pension Group Services Corporation (“CPGSC”), doing business as The Episcopal Church Medical Trust, maintains a series of health and welfare plans (the “Plans”) for eligible employees (and their eligible dependents) of the Episcopal Church (the “Church”). The Medical Trust serves only eligible Episcopal employers. The Plans that are self-funded are funded by the Episcopal Church Clergy and Employees’ Benefit Trust, a voluntary employees’ beneficiary association within the meaning of section 501(c)(9) of the Internal Revenue Code.
The Plans are church plans within the meaning of section 3(33) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended, and section 414(e) of the Internal Revenue Code. Not all Plans are available in all areas of the United States or outside the United States, and not all Plans are available on both a self-funded and fully insured basis. Additionally, the Plan may be exempt from federal and state laws that may otherwise apply to health insurance arrangements. The Plans do not cover all healthcare expenses, so members should read the official Plan documents carefully to determine which benefits are covered, as well as any applicable exclusions, limitations, and procedures.
