2 Deductibles & Maximum out of pockets Part of the Medical Plan 11

3 Definitions Deductible:An amount you pay (once each year) BEFORE the insurance kicks in For example, if you experience a $20,000 hospital stay and you have a $1500 deductible, you will need to pay the first $1500 of that charge before co-insurance begins to apply 2

4 Definitions – cont. Co-insurance:After the deductible is met, you and the insurance company share in the payments For example, if the unpaid balance AFTER your deductible is $18,500, the insurance plan will pay 90% of the balance and you pay 10% (assuming you are in-network). This continues until you hit your maximum out-of-pocket. 3

5 Definitions – cont. Maximum out-of-pocket: A dollar limit on the most you have to pay in a calendar year. For example, if your Maximum out-of-pocket is $3000, once you have paid $3000 for deductible and co-insurance, the insurance plan kicks in and pays 100% of covered charges for the balance of that calendar year. 4

7 Definitions – cont. In-network: Your portion (co-insurance) is 10% if your service is within the CMH PHO 30% if in the United Healthcare Options PPO 50% if outside both of these networks. 6

9 Definitions – cont. The United Healthcare Options PPO consists of healthcare providers who have contracted with UHC to accept payments as submitted (won’t balance bill the patient). Typically they also offer their patients a negotiated discount. /Options_PPO_Exclusions.html 8

10 Definitions – cont. Premiums: The amount paid by CMH and by employees to provide coverage. Overall, CMH pays nearly 75% of the total premiums on Medical Insurance As you review your options and “do the math” for which coverage makes the most sense for you and your dependents, realize you are seeing only a fraction of the total cost for coverage. 9

11 Definitions – cont. Pre-tax premiums: The federal government allows premiums to come out before FICA, Medicare, federal and state deductions. Your actual cost is really close to ¾ of what you see as a deduction. So a $200 deduction really “costs” you about $150. For those covering domestic partners, remember the portion of the premium that represents your partner’s coverage must be taken as an after tax deduction. 10
