INSURANCE

For 2024 our insurance plan is effective from March 1 – December 31.  Thereafter it is on a calendar year basis.  

There are three medical insurance plans. The primary differences between the two options are the premium amount, cost for office visits, annual deductible amount and annual out-of-pocket maximum. With each option you may receive health care services from a list of network providers (PPO) or from any health care provider. When you use network providers (PPO), you pay a smaller percentage of the health care costs. The High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) plan is a qualified high deductible health plan which allows you to open a health saving account (HSA) to grow your money tax-free.

A special note on Health Savings Accounts: When you enroll in a qualified high deductible health plan, you are covered for serious illness or injury by a high deductible (lower premium costs) insurance plan. You can then set up a health savings account (HSA) on your own. You can make tax-deductible contributions to an HSA to pay for qualifying medical expenses. The maximum amount per year you can put in this account is limited to the lower of the plan’s annual deductible amount or the statutory maximum as adjusted annually. The best thing about a health savings account is that it can function like an IRA: you can put money in and let it grow tax-deferred until you use it. You don’t have to use the HSA to pay for uncovered medical expenses, but if you do then you can withdraw the money tax-free.

For those of you who are new to our insurance or who are considering electing coverage please read the useful information below.

WE USE A THIRD-PARTY ADMINISTRATOR
It is important to remember that we use a third-party administrator for our insurance who uses the United Health Care network of providers. Your doctor/clinic will not be able to find your policy by calling United Health Care. Your provider will have to call the phone number on your card. That is our third-party administrator who will verify insurance benefits.  Please note: You will not be able to call the insurance administrator to confirm how much a procedure or prescription will cost. This is something your doctor or pharmacy has to do because only they have the billing codes needed to confirm actual contracted rates.

FIND A DOCTOR IN NETWORK EASILY
Before you go to the doctor verify it is an in-network provider. Use the link in the insurance summary document on this page to search.
