3 © 2010 Wittenberg University Springfield, Ohio General Information New Plan is Effective 10/1/2010 Self-Funded Plan subject to ERISA and plan document Partnering with Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield Blue Access PPO network – national network 4 Plan Types: Employee plan, Employee + spouse plan, Employee +children plan, & Family plan

4 © 2010 Wittenberg University Springfield, Ohio General Information Dental continues to be a part of the Medical Plan Your deductible accrual that started on January 1, 2010 will remain intact. In other words, plan members will not need to restart their deductible accumulations with the Oct. 1 onset of the Anthem plan. The healthcare plan will continue to operate on a calendar year. Deductibles, out-of-pocket maximums etc. will be calculated based on the calendar year.

5 © 2010 Wittenberg University Springfield, Ohio Glossary of Terms Co-pay – a flat dollar amount that is paid at the time of service. Co-pay does not apply to the deductible Deductible – annual amount of money a member must pay before benefits are paid at the co-insurance %. Co-insurance – a percentage that a member pays for services received after they have met their deductible. Member pays in full until deductible is met. Out-of- pocket limit – the most an employee would pay in deductible and co-insurance during a plan year (Jan-Dec) for healthcare services excluding prescription drugs. Services with a % = Co-insurance. Services with a $ = Co-pay.

6 © 2010 Wittenberg University Springfield, Ohio Wittenbergs Blue Access PPO Health Plan MEMBER PAYS Deductible $400 individual /$800 family Emergency Room Services 10% after deductible In-Network Benefit Out-of-Pocket Limit $1,200 individual /$2,000 family Physician Office visits $20 co-pay Preventive Care visits Covered at 100% Urgent Care $20 co-pay Inpatient/Outpatient Services 10% after deductible

7 © 2010 Wittenberg University Springfield, Ohio Wittenbergs PPO Health Plan Out-of-network benefit Out-of- Pocket Limit $1,300 individual /$2,200 family Physician Office visits 30% after deductible Preventive Care visits Urgent Care Inpatient/Outpatient Services Balance billing: Providers and hospitals who are out-of-network will bill you for the difference between the amount the plan pays and the usual and customary amount.

8 © 2010 Wittenberg University Springfield, Ohio Deductibles and Out-of-Pocket Limit Deductible The $400/$800 deductible simultaneously applies to both in and out-of-network services. In other words, there is not a separate deductible for out-of-network. Out-of-Pocket Limit (OOP) There is a separate out-of-pocket limit for in-network and out-of-network co-insurance expenses. Co-insurance costs for services received in-network only apply to the in-network OOP. Co-insurance costs for services received out-of- network only apply to the out-of-network OOP. In-network - $1,200/$2,000 Out-of-network - $1,300/$2,200

9 © 2010 Wittenberg University Springfield, Ohio Deductibles and Out-of-Pocket Limit Three Possible Scenarios Illustration: OOP costs based on an Individual Member 1.Member receives all services from in-network providers = $1,200 per individual OOP limit. ($400 deductible + $800 additional co-insurance expenses) 2.Member receives all services from out-of-network provider = $1,300 per individual OOP limit plus any balance billing. ($400 deductible + $900 additional co-insurance expenses…plus balance billing)

10 © 2010 Wittenberg University Springfield, Ohio Deductibles and Out-of-Pocket Limit 3. Individual Member receives in-network AND out-of -network services. Member must satisfy OOP limit under each benefit. OOP limit = $1,200-$2,100 depending on the cost of the out-of-network service. $1,200 in-network OOP limit plus the cost of the out-of-network service up to a maximum of $900 additional cost. Plus any balance billing.
