Rights & Disclosures This information is intended to be shared by employees with their spouse and dependents. 2014 Employee Benefits Plan Overview www.westplattebenefits.info
Special Enrollment Rights If you are declining enrollment for yourself or your dependents (including your spouse) because of other health insurance or group health plan coverage, you may be able to enroll yourself and your dependents in this plan if you or your dependents lose eligibility for that other coverage (or if the employer stops contributing toward you or your dependents other coverage). However, you must request enrollment within 30 days after you or your dependents other coverage ends (or after the employer stops contributing toward the other coverage). In addition, if you have a new dependent as a result of marriage, birth, adoption, or placement for adoption, you may be able to enroll yourself and your dependents. However, you must request enrollment within 30 days after the marriage, birth, adoption, or placement for adoption. To request special enrollment or to obtain more information contact Bukaty Companies at 888.657.0440. Notice of pre-existing condition limitations Your plan may impose a pre-existing condition exclusion. This means that if you have a medical condition before coming to our plan, you might have to wait a certain period of time before the plan will provide coverage for that condition. This exclusion applies only to conditions for which medical advice, diagnosis, care, or treatment was recommended or received within a 6-month period. Generally, this 6-month period ends the day before your coverage becomes effective. However, if you were in a waiting period for coverage, the 6-month period ends on the day before the waiting period begins. The pre-existing condition exclusion does not apply to pregnancy or to a child who is under the age of 19. This exclusion may last up to 12 months (18 months if you are a late enrollee) from your first day of coverage, or, if you were in a waiting period, from the first day of your waiting period. However, you can reduce the length of this exclusion period by the number of days of your priorcreditable coverage. Most prior health coverage is creditable coverage and can be used to reduce the pre-existing condition exclusion if you have not experienced a break in coverage of at least 63 days. To reduce the 12-month (or 18-month) exclusion period by your creditable coverage, you should give us a copy of any certificates of creditable coverage you have. If you do not have a certificate, but you do have prior health coverage, we will help you obtain one from your prior plan or issuer. There are also other ways that you can show you have creditable coverage. Please contact us if you need help demonstrating creditable coverage. All questions about the pre-existing condition exclusion and creditable coverage should be directed to Bukaty Companies at 888.657.0440. Plan participants may be subject to more favorable limitations based on applicable state law in which the employer group is located. Womans Health and Cancer Rights Act (WHCRA) of 1998 If you have had or are going to have a mastectomy, you may be entitled to certain benefits under the Womens Health and Cancer Rights Act of 1998 (WHCRA). For individuals receiving mastectomy-related benefits, coverage will be provided in a manner determined in consultation with the attending physician and the patient, for: - All stages of reconstruction of the breast on which the mastectomy was performed; - Surgery and reconstruction of the other breast to produce symmetrical appearance; - Prostheses; and - Treatment of the physical complications of the mastectomy, including lymphedema. These benefits will be provided subject to the same deductibles and coinsurance applicable to other medical and surgical benefits provided under this plan. See your Plans medical summary for deductibles and coinsurance details. If you would like more information on WHCRA benefits, call your Plan Administrator. Do you know that your plan, as required by the Womens Health and Cancer Rights Act (WHCRA) of 1998, provides benefits for mastectomy- related services including all stages of reconstruction and surgery to achieve symmetry between breasts, prostheses, and complications resulting from a mastectomy, including lymphedema? Call Bukaty Companies at 888.657.0440 for more information. Keep Us Informed of Status Changes It is very important that you keep your Plan Administrator informed of address changes and other personal data changes for you and/or dependents who are or may become qualified beneficiaries on any of the companys group benefits. Changes should be reported to the Plan Administrator. COBRA Rights In the Event You Lose Your Health (Medical/Dental/Flex) Coverage… A group health plan is required to offer COBRA continuation coverage to you, your spouse and your dependents enrolled in the Plan when a qualifying event occurs that causes loss of group health coverage. Coverage may be available for 18 months up to a maximum of 36 months, depending upon the qualifying event. The employer is required to notify the Plan if the qualifying event is: - Termination (for any reason other than gross misconduct) or reduction in hours of employment of the covered employee - eligible for up to 18 months of continuation coverage - Death of the covered employee - eligible for up to 36 months of continuation coverage - Covered employee becomes entitled to Medicare - eligible for up to 36 months of continuation coverage depending upon date of Medicare entitlement The covered employee or one of the qualified beneficiaries is responsible for notifying the Plan Administrator within 60 days of the occurrence if the qualifying event is: - Divorce or legal separation - eligible for up to 36 months of continuation coverage - A childs loss of dependent status under the Plan - eligible for up to 36 months of continuation coverage
Disability Extension If you or anyone in your family covered under the Plan is determined by the Social Security Administration (SSA) to be disabled and you notify the Plan Administrator in a timely fashion, you and your entire family may be entitled to receive up to an additional 11 months of coverage for a total of 29 months. The disability would have to have started at some time before the 60th day of COBRA continuation coverage and must last at least until the end of the 18-month period of continuation coverage. To obtain the extended coverage, a copy of the SSA disability determination must be received by the Plan Administrator within 60 days after the determination is issued and within the individuals first 18 months of continuation coverage. If SSA determines later the individual is no longer disabled, that individual must notify the Plan Administrator within 30 days after the date of the second determination. Second Qualifying Event If while on 18 months of continuation coverage, family members enrolled in the Plan experience another qualifying event, they may be entitled to an additional 18 months of coverage, for a maximum of 36 months. The extension may be granted if the employee or former employee dies, becomes entitled to Medicare or gets divorced or legally separated, or if the dependent child loses dependent status, but only if the events would have caused the spouse or dependent child to lose coverage under the Plan had the first qualifying event not occurred. When responsibility for notification rests with the covered employee or qualified beneficiary, notice of the qualifying event must be made within 60 days of the occurrence to the companys Plan Administrator. A detailed explanation of COBRA rights and procedures is available in the Plans Summary Plan Description. Lifetime limit The lifetime limit on the dollar value of benefits under your group health plan no longer applies. Individuals whose coverage ended by reason of reaching a lifetime limit under the plan are eligible to enroll in the plan. Individuals have 30 days from the date of this notice to request enrollment. For more information contact Bukaty Companies at 888.657.0440. Medicaid and the Childrens Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Offer Free Or Low-Cost Health Coverage To Children And Families If you are eligible for health coverage from your employer, but are unable to afford the premiums, some States have premium assistance programs that can help pay for coverage. These States use funds from their Medicaid or CHIP programs to help people who are eligible for employer- sponsored health coverage, but need assistance in paying their health premiums. If you or your dependents are already enrolled in Medicaid or CHIP and you live in a State listed below, you can contact your State Medicaid or CHIP office to find out if premium assistance is available. If you or your dependents are NOT currently enrolled in Medicaid or CHIP, and you think you or any of your dependents might be eligible for either of these programs, you can contact your State Medicaid or CHIP office or dial 1-877-KIDS NOW or www.insurekidsnow.gov to find out how to apply. If you qualify, you can ask the State if it has a program that might help you pay the premiums for an employer- sponsored plan.www.insurekidsnow.gov Once it is determined that you or your dependents are eligible for premium assistance under Medicaid or CHIP, your employers health plan is required to permit you and your dependents to enroll in the plan – as long as you and your dependents are eligible, but not already enrolled in the employers plan. This is called a special enrollment opportunity, and you must request coverage within 60 days of being determined eligible for premium assistance. If you live in one of the following States, you may be eligible for assistance paying your employer health plan premiums. You should contact your State for further information on eligibility.

Your Employer's group contract provides coverage that may contain limitations based on whether a condition is considered preexisting. For Kansas groups and Kansas residents, any condition (whether physical or mental) for which medical advice, diagnosis, care or treatment was recommended or received within the 90 day period prior to the enrollment date is considered a preexisting condition, and your Employer's group contract excludes coverage for these specific preexisting conditions for 90 day from the enrollment date. For Missouri groups, any condition (whether physical or mental) for which medical advice, diagnosis, care or treatment was recommended or received within the 6 month period prior to the enrollment date is considered a preexisting condition, and your Employer's group contract excludes coverage for these specific preexisting conditions for 12 months from the enrollment date. However, your Employer's group contract will provide credit for preexisting conditions if you were previously covered under creditable coverage. The period of any preexisting condition exclusion that would otherwise apply to a person will be reduced by the number of days of creditable coverage the person has as of the enrollment date. In order to receive credit toward the preexisting condition exclusion period, you must provide copies of the certificates of Creditable Coverage or other acceptable proof of coverage from the prior plan(s) or the following information for the verification of prior creditable medical coverage you or any listed dependents currently have, or previously had, including continuation of coverage. You have the right to request a Certificate of Creditable Coverage from your prior plan or insurer. To request assistance in obtaining a Certificate of Creditable Coverage from a prior plan or insurer, please contact Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City. Should you need additional information or assistance regarding any preexisting condition exclusion, please contact our Member Services Department at (816) 395-2950.
