Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) When selecting an HMO, you will need to choose and register with your current carrier a Primary Care Physician (PCP) from a list of network providers. If you require a specialist, outpatient procedure, or hospitalization, your registered PCP must refer you. This ensures you remain within your HMO network.  There aren’t out-of-network benefits with an HMO.

Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) You have the flexibility to see any doctor or visit any hospital of your choice, however, you will pay significantly less money out of your pocket if you use a doctor or hospital that is in the network. For most doctor visits and specialist visits, you simply pay a copayment at the time of service.  Preventative care services are generally covered at 100%, with no cost share to you. You have a great deal of flexibility and choice with a PPO, and can manage your out-of-pocket costs by remaining in network.

Consumer Driven Health Plan (CDHP) with Health Savings Account (HSA) Preventative care services are covered at 100% as long as your physician bills your visit as preventative.  For other services, including routine office visits, procedures, lab work, prescription drugs, etc., no benefits will be paid until you have met your annual deductible. The HSA is a bank account paired with your BCBS Major Medical coverage that allows you to save money on a tax-free basis to pay your deductible and other out-of-pocket medical expenses. Qualified medical expenses that can be paid using this account include doctor visits, prescription drugs, chiropractic treatment, acupuncture, adult braces, and dental and vision expenses.  You own the money in your HSA account and it is yours to keep – even when you change plans or retire. The funds can roll over from year to year and you do not pay tax on withdrawals used for qualified medical expenses.

Dental Insurance – PDP Plus Network You have the flexibility to use any dentist of your choice, however, you can manage your out-of-pocket costs by remaining in-network. Negotiated fees extend to all in-network services—even to non-covered services like cosmetics and adult orthodontia—and to services provided after the annual benefit maximum has been exceeded. Out-of-Network fees are based on the schedule of maximum allowances.

Vision Insurance The vision insurance plan provides reimbursement for vision related services (eye exams, glasses, contact lenses, etc.), however, you can manage your out-of-pocket costs by utilizing in-network vision providers. Vision insurance is automatically given to employees, at no additional cost, that sign up for our medical insurance.
