31  Affordable Care Act “Cadillac Tax” ◦ Beginning 2018, 40% tax above thresholds ◦ Thresholds:  Individual: $10,200  Family: $27,500  HDHP Plans are the Norm ◦ DRG G: 11/15 have HDHP ◦ 7 have HDHP as only option ◦ Almost all of them have $2,000/$4,000 deductible with 50% funding by BOE  Premium Costs Shares ◦ Mid teens to Low twenties

32 TENTATIVE AGREEMENT 32

33  Copays now apply to all drugs other than diabetes and Women’s health.  Deductible Increases to $2,250 Single and $4,500 family.  Board Contribution to HSA goes to $0.  Cost share goes to 5% for all three years of settlement.  Re-opener if plan is affected by Obama care tax.  No change to plan design, dental, or copays on drugs. 33

34  Plan costs go up for deductible  Previously the deductible was $2,000 for the individual with a $1,000 deductible net of board contribution  The new deductible is now $2,250 with no Board contribution. 34

35  The deductible goes from 16% to 5%  With a family rate expected to be at $27,000 in year two that is worth $3,000 to each family more than offsetting the $2,250 in additional cost  If you use up your deductible in the first two months the Board will provide an interest free loan to help you offset the cost 35

36  Your drug costs are likely to increase as the $5/$20/$35 copays will apply to many more drugs  If plan costs exceed $10,200 for individual or $27,500 for family (assuming law stays the same) the plan will be renegotiated in
