Our medical coverage provides you and your family the protection you need for everyday health issues or when the unexpected happens.

You have access to two medical plans through our national carrier, Anthem Blue Cross. Both plans provide a range of coverage levels and costs, including preventive care covered at 100%, prescription drug coverage and the protection of an out-of-pocket maximum – a feature that limits what you pay in any year if you have large medical expenses. Depending on where you live, you may also have access to the Kaiser Permanente HMO network.

Important Points


In-Network Preventive Care

To emphasize the importance of wellness, eligible preventive care expenses are covered by your plan at 100% if you receive care from in-network providers.

Deductible

You pay for your medical (Gold) or medical and prescription (Silver & Bronze) costs until you meet your annual deductible. The deductible varies by plan, and the Kaiser HMO plan (select markets only) is a zero-deductible option.

Copays

A fixed amount (for example, $25 or $45) you pay for a covered health care service, usually when you receive the service. The amount can vary by the type of covered health care service.  Copays are typically not applied to your deductible.

Coinsurance

After you meet your deductible, a percentage amount (for example, 20%) you pay for a covered health care service, usually billed after you receive the service.

Out-of-Pocket Maximum

The maximum amount you would ever pay in a calendar year. Once you meet your out-of-pocket maximum, the plan pays 100% of your eligible in-network expenses for the remainder of the year.    Remember to always stay in-network, because your out-of-network out-of-pocket max is much higher.
