Today’s Agenda Welcome Review Anthem Plan Effective 07/01/14 –What’s Staying the Same –Why & What’s Changing –Claim Examples Q&A
WHAT’S STAYING THE SAME: KeyCare - Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) Plan PCP not required No referrals needed No claim forms needed when using network providers Very large network of providers available both in Virginia and throughout the U.S. Out-of-network benefits available but at lower coverage levels Dependents covered until the end of the month in which they reach age 26. Annual eye exam - $15 copay (provided through Blue View Vision) Out of pocket maximum (in-network)-$3,000/$6,000 Plan Overview
WHY & WHAT’S CHANGING: WHY CHANGE: Health care costs are affected by: Price inflation, utilization, legislation changes, new treatments, therapies and technologies 8% is the national average rate increase… If HCPS made NO changes, our rate increase would be: 22.3%... this is not sustainable Solution: Change to a plan that is: Considered a quality program in the market Cost effective and sustainable Plan Overview
WHY & WHAT’S CHANGING: WHAT’s CHANGING Benefits – plan is changing to KeyCare 25 Preventive services have been added as a result of the Affordable Care Act Plan Overview
Preventive Care Preventive Care Services covered at 100% in-network with no member copay. *Preventive care services are those services that meet the requirements of federal and state law, including certain screenings, immunizations and physician visits, and include such services as: Well Baby Visit with associated immunizations and screenings Well Woman Visit with associated gyn exam, pap smear, and mammogram. Medical and Pharmacy contraceptives, 1 breast pump purchase or rental per pregnancy when purchased from a participating Durable Medical Equipment provider. Routine Physical with associated immunizations and screenings Select OTC drugs with prescription from doctor (ex - iron supplements for children 0-12 months, aspirin for men age 45-79 and women age 55-79) Screening related to tobacco use including tobacco cessation products with prescription from doctor * During the course of a routine screening procedure, abnormalities or problems may be identified that require immediate intervention or additional diagnosis. If this occurs, and your provider performs additional necessary procedures, the service will be considered diagnostic and/or surgical, rather than screening, depending on the claim for the services submitted by your provider, which will result in a member cost share.
