3 Medical Plan Guiding Principles Low-cost and market-competitive Decisions based on best practices and evidence-based medicine When possible, drive care to the AAMC medical community Align with Vision 2020: Living Healthier Together and population health management Steering Group: 3 Julie McGovernPat Czapp, MDNancy Luttrell Kate Snyder, RNTom PiantaSherry Perkins, PhD, RN Mitch Schwartz, MD

4 Changes Effective July 1, 2014  Medical Plan Premium Increase Per pay period cost increase under each medical plan:  No Premium Increase in Dental and Vision Plans Core$1.58 (individual)$10.04 (family) WellChoice$3.02 (individual)$20.83 (family) VitalChoice$4.65 (individual)$32.07 (family)

5 How Do We Manage Health? Focus on prevention, early detection and management of risk factors that are major causes of chronic illness and death Heart disease is the #1 health problem locally, regionally and nationally This year we are helping our employees know your numbers: your own risk factors for developing heart disease

6 You and Your Doctor A primary care doctor helps you prevent, detect and treat risk factors for heart disease: – High Body Mass Index – High Blood Pressure – High Cholesterol – Diabetes or Pre-Diabetes – Smoking

7 Healthy Equation This year, we are launching a new initiative for our adult health plan members. It focuses on the importance of our members: 1)building a relationship with a primary care physician and 2)getting screened for conditions that increase the risk of developing heart disease and diabetes. Changes Effective July 1, 2014

8 Healthy Equation  See your doctor and get your cholesterol and diabetes screenings in calendar year 2014 (Jan. 1 – Dec. 31, 2014)  If all three components aren’t completed by Dec. 31, 2014, members will have a $30 per pay surcharge, in effect from Jan. 30, 2015 through June 30, 2015.  Applies to employees with our medical plan and their covered spouses; it does not apply to children.

9 9 What’s the Healthy Equation?

10 Any time during calendar year 2014: many have done it already! Visit does NOT have to be a physical or “check-up” Screening is ordered by your primary care doctor and results go to that doctor Screening can be done before, during or after the visit; it’s up to you and your doctor to decide No reporting needed by doctor or patient No primary care doctor? We’ll help find you one. 10 Healthy Equation

11 Combined Leave Benefit No further reduction to the standard CLB accrual rate Part time Employees: Employment status up to.9 will accrue CLB based on their employment status. If you are a.5 employee & work more than 40 hours in a pay period, your pay period CLB accrual will max out at the.5 status. Example: Non-exempt employee.5 employed by AAMC 6 years earns 2.616 hours per pay. If the employee works additional hours during the pay period, his/her CLB accrual will not exceed 2.616 hours. 11

12 Combined Leave Benefit In addition, the maximum carry over amount will be relative to the updated part-time accrual amounts, (currently the part time carry over is no different than Full time employees). Example: Using the example in our previous slide this same Non-exempt employee prior to 7.1.14 could carry over 204 hours, however as of 7.1.2014 the maximum carry over is 102.024 hours. 12
