  • 12018 Enrollment Guide

    Its time to make your benefits elections for 2018! This Enrollment Guide highlights the benefits available to you and your family starting January 1, 2018. Find more information about 2018 coverage options in the Medical Plan Comparison and Cost Summary, included in your Benefits Open Enrollment packet, and online at MyUSNHBenefits.net.

    Enroll Starting October 23 for 2018 Benefits

    Dont Default! Benefits Open Enrollment is active, which means you must enroll to have the coverage you want starting January 1, 2018. If you dont enroll in medical coverage, you will default into the lowest option plan with Employee Only coverage, subject to eligibility. If you waived coverage for 2017 and dont make coverage elections for 2018, you will continue to have waived coverage for 2018.

    Cash Back Incentives for Coverage Elections. If youre in a status 75%100% appointment and youre not covered under another

    employees USNH Medical or Dental Plan, youre eligible for cash back if you waive certain benefits, including medical and dental.

    2018 BENEFITS OPEN ENROLLMENT When You Can EnrollYou must enroll, change or waive coverage during the 2018 Benefits Open Enrollment period: October 23 November 3, 2017. Benefits Open Enrollment is the only time you can enroll or change your benefits elections for 2018, unless you experience a qualified change of status during the year (such as marriage, divorce or the birth of a child).

    Who You Can CoverYou can elect coverage for yourself and any eligible dependents. Visit MyUSNHBenefits.net for a list of eligible dependents. If youre enrolling dependents for the first time, you have 30 days from your enrollment date to provide dependent eligibility verification documents at MyUSNHBenefits.net or to your campus Human Resources Office.

    What Your Benefits CostBi-weekly payroll deductions for the Medical Plans are available in the Medical Plan Comparison and Cost Summary, included in this Benefits Open Enrollment packet. Payroll deductions for dental and vision coverage are included in this guide. Your cost will depend on the options you elect and the eligible family members you cover.

    MEDICAL AND PRESCRIPTION DRUG PLANSYou can choose from three Open Access Plus Medical Plans administered by Cigna. All plans:

    Provide access to Cignas nationwide network of doctors and hospitals

    Dont require you to select a primary care provider

    Cover the same services, including preventive care (generally covered at 100% in-network), emergency services, in-patient and out-patient care

    Include prescription drug coverage, administered by OptumRx

    Offer a fitness club membership benefit of up to $500 per year, provided eligibility requirements are met.

    For each plan, you share in the cost of services through deductibles, copayments and/or coinsurance. And, youre protected from the high cost of large medical bills by an annual out-of-pocket maximum. The out-of-pocket maximum is the most you will pay for covered services in a calendar year before the plan pays 100% of covered expenses.

    Review your Medical Plan Comparison and Cost Summary for coverage details and costs.

    Take a Closer Look at the Open Access Plus Health Savings Account (HSA) Plan If you meet eligibility guidelines and enroll in this plan, you can open a Health Savings Account to pay for eligible qualified health care expenses, tax-free!

    Heres how:

    USNH will provide a contribution to your HSA and you can contribute your own money, tax-free, up to the IRS limits (if youre eligible).

    You can use your account to pay for eligible medical expenses, like copays/coinsurance, your deductible and prescription drugs.

    You can contribute a maximum of $3,450 for Employee Only coverage/$6,900 for All Other Coverage Levels, combined employee and employer contributions.

    If you will be 55 by December 31, 2018, you can contribute $1,000 more to your HSA.

    You can take your HSA with you if you leave USNH or retire.

    The money in your account grows tax-free from investment returns and youre not taxed on withdrawals.

    To be eligible for the Health Savings Account you must be enrolled in the Open Access Plus HSA plan and not be enrolled in Medicare or any other health insurance coverage. In addition, if you have a 2017 Healthcare Flexible Spending Account, you must have a zero balance on December 31, 2017. Visit MyUSNHBenefits.net to view a short video on the advantages of the HSA!

    How to Decide on a Medical Plan How much health care do you expect to use?

    Rememberthe most expensive plan option isnt always the best option for you. If you dont expect to spend a lot on health care services or prescription drugs, consider the Open Access Plus HSA plan. Youll pay less out of each paycheck for coverage, and only pay for the services you use.

    Do you have the resources to pay for health care expenses? In the Open Access Plus HSA plan, USNHs HSA contribution will help you pay your out-of-pocket costs. However, consider whether you will have the resources to pay the full cost of medical services until you reach the deductible.

    Do you want to build tax-free savings for future health expenses? The HSA is the only tax-advantaged account that rolls over from year to year.

    IMPORTANT DEFINITIONS TO KEEP IN MIND Annual deductible: The amount you generally pay each calendar year for covered services

    before the plan starts paying benefits.

    Annual out-of-pocket maximum: A limit on the total amount you pay each calendar year for covered services (deductibles, copays and coinsurance). The Medical Plan you choose may have a separate annual prescription drug out-of-pocket maximum for covered prescription drug copays.

    Coinsurance: A percentage of the cost of covered services you pay, generally after you meet the annual deductible and before you meet the annual out-of-pocket maximum.

    Copays: The flat dollar amount you pay for covered services before you meet the annual out-of-pocket maximum.
