The Consumer-Driven Health Plan (CDHP) with Health Savings Account (HSA) is your health plan for the future. This plan is designed to encourage you to focus on being a smart health care consumer and save money for future or annual medical expenses. The plan uses the Cigna network of medical providers and combines traditional medical coverage with an optional tax-free savings account with JP Morgan Chase, called a Health Savings Account (HSA).
- Choose the doctors you want to see – no referral required to see a specialist.
- You pay 100% of your health care expenses until you meet your annual deductible. This includes physician office visits and prescription drugs.
- After meeting your annual deductible, you share the cost of health care expenses by paying co-insurance (a percentage of the total office visit cost).
- Routine preventive care and qualifying preventive prescriptions are covered at 100%. However, please note there are allowance maximums for preventive mammograms ($200), preventive colonoscopies ($2,250) and all MRIs ($2,300 after deductible is met). See allowance details.
- Qualifying Walmart prescriptions ($4 List) are also covered at 100% once you meet your annual deductible.
- If you are currently covered under Medicare, you are eligible to participate in the Consumer-Driven Health Plan with HSA. However, you are not eligible to own an HSA Account per IRS guidelines.
- HSA Eligibility (Based on IRS Rules): You must be enrolled in a Consumer-Driven Health Plan to have an HSA account; You must have no other health coverage; You must not be enrolled in Medicare; and You cannot be claimed as a dependent on someone else's 2013 tax return.
How the Plan Works
You establish a tax-free health savings account when you enroll in your benefits. The Company contributes to your account (see below) and you may also contribute any amount you wish, up to the current 2014 federal limit. (Single limit is $3,300; Family is $6,550) If you are over age 55, you may contribute an additional annual catch-up contribution of $1,000 in 2014.
It’s YourChoice how and when to use the money – you can either use it to pay for your qualified medical, dental, or vision expenses, or save it for future needs.
Whatever you don’t use in 2014 earns interest and rolls over to 2015.
With the plan, you’ll pay an annual deductible before your health plan begins to pay for eligible expenses.
A deductible is the amount of money that you’ll be required to pay before your plan starts paying benefits.
You can meet your deductible by using your HSA, your own money or both.
Only services covered by your health plan count toward your deductible. (See Summary of Benefits below for more details.)
Once you meet your deductible, you pay co-insurance, which is a percentage of your medical cost. The plan pays for the rest.
What’s more, your deductible counts toward your out-of-pocket maximum (the most you’ll pay in a given year for all covered expenses). Once you meet your out-of-pocket maximum (which includes your deductible), your plan pays covered expenses at 100%.
Health Savings Account (HSA) - Contributions
The Company's contribution to employee Health Savings Accounts in 2014 are as follows:$500 (if you contribute $250 or more) - Employee only
$800 (if you contribute $400 or more) - Employee + Spouse
$800 (if you contribute $400 or more) - Employee + Child(ren)
$1,100 (if you contribute $550 or more) - Employee + Family
See HSA contribution examples below.
Any balance remaining in your HSA rolls over to the next year, and if you leave or retire from The Company, the money in your account goes with you. It is never taxable if it is used for qualified medical expenses at any time in the future.
- Contributions to your HSA are taken out of your paycheck before taxes – so the amount of taxes withheld are reduced.
- You will receive an HSA Debit card which draws money directly from your HSA. Use your debit card to pay for services at the doctor’s office, at your local pharmacy, eyeglass retailer or other locations where you purchase medical-related items or services
The company pays for the basic banking fees, and the employee is responsible for any additional fees. Please see attached fee schedule for details.
