The Executive Edge: 7 Key Advantages of Executive Medical Reimbursement Plans

Executive Health April 1, 2024

Welcome to the ultimate solution in the realm of supplemental health insurance: Ultimate Health® by ArmadaCare. Designed with busy executives in mind, this executive medical reimbursement plan helps keep key talent healthy and productive, protects the bottom line and allows companies to position themselves as an employer of choice. Explore the 7 key advantages that make Ultimate Health a smart business decision:

Coverage & Flexibility

Primary plans are typically unable to meet the lifestyle and healthcare needs of the average executive family. Ultimate Health picks up where primary plans fall short with fully insured, supplemental health insurance coverage for a broad range of out-of-pocket expenses. This type of executive medical reimbursement plan provides coverage for everyday and unexpected care, including 213(d) eligible expenses. It expands healthcare coverage far beyond primary medical plan gaps to include:

  • Elective executive physicals
  • Robust dental and vision coverage, including orthodontia, LASIK and brand name frames (no underlying dental or vision coverage needed)
  • Brand-name prescriptions
  • And much more…

In addition, Ultimate Health® can be put in place at the start of any month, so there’s no need to wait until the primary health plan is renewed. This flexibility can help employers meet evolving employee needs or address key issues as they emerge


Ultimate Health, an employer-paid, fully insured 105(h) plan, offers tax-deductible* premiums for companies and non-taxable* benefits for enrolled employees. While giving out one-time incentives can be enticing, 42% of employees said they would rather receive better health insurance than a raise this year.1 Investing in a supplemental health insurance plan can translate into more take-home value than a comparable salary raise or bonus and serves as a constant reminder of a company’s appreciation for its employees.


Unlike cost-plus or self-funded executive medical reimbursement plans, Ultimate Health is REAL insurance, underwritten to the unique characteristics of a group. Claims are submitted directly to ArmadaCare and reimbursed to members under a fully insured policy, keeping clients safe and compliant. Also, because Ultimate Health qualifies as an excepted benefit, employers can carve out by employee class provide targeted coverage based off title, tenure, or performance.
