1With the $900, $2,850 and $4,500 Deductible Plans, coinsurance will begin for a covered family member if that family member’s individual deductible is met; coinsurance begins for all covered family members once the family deductible has been met.
2With the $1,850 Deductible Plan (excluding the Kaiser California $1,850 Deductible Plan), the family deductible must be met before the plan will begin to pay coinsurance for any covered family member.
The Kaiser California $1,850 Deductible Plan has, as required by state law, a three tier deductible consisting of a $1,850 individual deductible for Self Only coverage, a $2,800 individual-within-family deductible for employees electing dependent coverage and a $3,700 overall family deductible

3With the $900, $2,850 and $4,500 Deductible Plans, the plan will begin to pay 100% of the cost of a covered family member’s covered expenses if that family member's individual out-of-pocket maximum is met; the plan begins to pay 100% of covered expenses for all covered family members once the family out-of-pocket maximum has been met.
4With the $1,850 Deductible Plan (excluding the Kaiser California $1,850 Deductible Plan), the family out-of-pocket maximum must be met before the plan will begin to pay 100% of the cost of covered services for any covered family member. With the Kaiser California $1,850 Deductible Plan, the plan will begin to pay 100% of the cost of a covered family member’s covered expenses if that family member’s individual out-of-pocket maximum is met; the plan begins to pay 100% of covered expenses for all covered family members once the family out-of-pocket maximum has been met.

$4,500 Deductible Plan ($9,000 family deductible)

The $4,500 Deductible Plan is a high deductible health plan, or HDHP. It offers the lowest premiums and highest deductibles, along with the option to elect a tax-advantaged Health Savings Account (HSA) that helps you save pre-tax money to cover eligible medical expenses. As a reward for completing certain wellness activities, you and your covered spouse (if applicable) can earn Reward Dollars that will be deposited automatically into your HSA within six weeks of completing certain wellness activities. Employees can earn up to $500, and a covered spouse has the opportunity to earn an additional $300. Employees covering themselves and child(ren) only can earn up to $800 (only the employee is required to complete the activities).

You have until November 30 of each year to earn Reward Dollars. Money in your HSA can be carried forward from year to year and is always yours to keep.

How it works

  • Your in-network preventive care is covered in full – the deductible does not apply.
  • You pay for your initial medical and prescription costs until you meet your annual deductible. Your pre-tax HSA contributions and any earned Reward Dollars from Transamerica can help you pay your out-of-pocket costs.
  • Once you meet the deductible, you’ll pay 30% of your covered medical expenses; this amount is called your coinsurance.
  • If you choose a coverage tier other than Self Only, there is an embedded individual deductible, which means that coinsurance will begin for a covered family member if that person’s individual deductible is met; coinsurance begins for all covered family members once the family deductible has been met.
  • If your share of medical expenses reaches $6,550/$13,100 (individual/family), the plan’s out-of-pocket (OOP) maximum, the plan pays 100% of your eligible expenses for the rest of the year. An individual OOP maximum applies for each covered family member; once the family OOP maximum is met, 100% payment begins for all covered family members.

$2,850 Deductible Plan ($5,700 family deductible)

The $2,850 Deductible Plan is a high deductible health plan, or HDHP. It pairs lower-premium, higher-deductible coverage with the option to elect a tax-advantaged Health Savings Account (HSA) that helps you save pre-tax money to cover eligible medical expenses. As a reward for completing certain wellness activities, you and your covered spouse (if applicable) can earn Reward Dollars that will be deposited automatically into your HSA within six weeks of completing certain wellness activities. Employees can earn up to $500, and a covered spouse has the opportunity to earn an additional $300. Employees covering themselves and child(ren) only can earn up to $800 (only the employee is required to complete the activities).

You have until November 30 of each year to earn Reward Dollars. Money in your HSA can be carried forward from year to year and is always yours to keep.

  • You pay for your initial medical and prescription costs until you meet your annual deductible. Your pre-tax HSA contributions and any earned Reward Dollars from Transamerica can help you pay your out-of-pocket costs.
  • Once you meet the deductible, you’ll pay 30% of your covered medical expenses; this amount is called your coinsurance.
  • If you choose a coverage tier other than Self Only, there is an embedded individual deductible, which means that coinsurance will begin for a covered family member if that person’s individual deductible is met; coinsurance begins for all covered family members once the family deductible has been met.
  • If your share of medical expenses reaches $5,500/$11,000 (individual/family), the plan’s out-of-pocket (OOP) maximum, the plan pays 100% of your eligible expenses for the rest of the year. An individual OOP maximum applies for each covered family member; once the family OOP maximum is met, 100% payment begins for all covered family members.

$1,850 Deductible Plan ($3,700 family deductible)

The $1,850 Deductible Plan is a high deductible health plan, or HDHP. It pairs lower-premium, high-deductible coverage with the option to elect a tax-advantaged Health Savings Account (HSA) that helps you save pre-tax money to cover eligible medical expenses. As a reward for completing certain wellness activities, you and your covered spouse (if applicable) can earn Reward Dollars that will be deposited automatically into your HSA within six weeks of completing certain wellness activities. Employees can earn up to $500, and a covered spouse has the opportunity to earn an additional $300. Employees covering themselves and child(ren) only can earn up to $800 (only the employee is required to complete the activities).

You have until November 30 of each year to earn Reward Dollars. Money in your HSA can be carried forward from year to year and is always yours to keep.

How it works

  • Your in-network preventive care is covered in full – the deductible does not apply.
  • You pay for your initial medical and prescription costs until you meet your annual deductible. Your pre-tax HSA contributions and any earned Reward Dollars from Transamerica can help you pay your out-of-pocket costs.
  • Once you meet the deductible, you’ll pay 20% of your covered medical expenses; this amount is called your coinsurance.
  • Important note: With this plan, there is a true family deductible, which means that if you choose a coverage tier other than Self Only, the family deductible must be met before the plan will begin to pay coinsurance for any covered family member.
  • If your share of medical expenses reaches $3,500/$6,500 (individual/family), the plan’s out-of-pocket (OOP) maximum, the plan pays 100% of your eligible expenses for the rest of the year. For coverage tiers other than Self Only, the entire family OOP maximum must be met before the plan begins paying for covered expenses at 100%.

Use the HDHPs wisely

With lower premiums, the $4,500, $2,850 and $1,850 Deductible Plans give you more opportunity to take control of your health care spending. Here’s how you can make the most of your plan all year long.
  • Track your stats. Log in to your carrier’s website to see how much of your deductible you’ve met, review claims, use helpful tools and more. Likewise, keep tabs on your HSA by logging in to Optum Bank's website to view your balance, manage claims, etc.
  • Be cost-conscious. Visit your carrier’s website to search for in-network providers and use the tools to compare costs for medical services.
  • Plan for your expenses. You pay lower premiums in exchange for assuming more financial responsibility when you receive care, so it’s smart to plan ahead. Try to contribute enough to your HSA to cover your expected out-of-pocket costs, such as your annual deductible and coinsurance.
  • Change your HSA contributions anytime. Adjust your contributions as necessary during the year to make sure you have money available when you need it. Keep in mind: With an HSA, you can only spend up to the amount that’s actually been deposited into your account.
  • Look long term. You will never forfeit any money left in your HSA, it rolls over year after year. If you know about future expenses, or if you want to save for your health care costs in retirement, set aside a little extra each paycheck so your balance can grow over time. Once your account reaches a certain balance, there are investment options to help your money grow.

$900 Deductible Plan ($1,800 family deductible)

The $900 Deductible Plan offers the lowest out-of-pocket costs when you need care, but has the highest premiums of all your plan options. With this plan, your costs are more predictable, but you’ll likely still have out-of-pocket expenses.

How it works

  • Your in-network preventive care is covered in full — the deductible does not apply.
  • You pay your medical costs in full until you meet the plan’s annual deductible.
  • Once you meet the deductible, you’ll pay 20% of your covered medical expenses; this amount is called your coinsurance.
  • If you choose a coverage tier other than Self Only, there is an embedded individual deductible, which means that coinsurance will begin for a covered family member if that person’s individual deductible is met; coinsurance begins for all covered family members once the family deductible has been met.
  • The deductible does not apply to prescription drugs with this plan ― you pay a coinsurance amount with a minimum and maximum out-of-pocket cost for prescriptions.
  • If your share of medical expenses reaches $3,000/$6,000 (individual/family), the plan's out-of-pocket (OOP) maximum, the plan pays 100% of your eligible expenses for the rest of the year. An individual OOP maximum applies for each covered family member; once the family OOP maximum is met, 100% payment begins for all covered family members.

Use the $900 Deductible Plan wisely

Here are ways to make the most of your plan all year long.

  • Track your stats. Log in to your carrier’s website to see how much of your deductible you’ve met, review claims and more.
  • Pair it with a Health Care FSA. If you enroll in the Health Care FSA, you can set aside pre-tax dollars to help pay for your out-of-pocket costs. Keep in mind, you can only carry over up to $550 of unused money in your FSA to the next year; you will forfeit amounts above $550.
  • Be cost-conscious. Visit your carrier’s website to search for in-network providers and use the tools to compare costs for medical services.
Understanding Your Deductible
  • In the $1,850 Deductible Plan (excluding the Kaiser California $1,850 Deductible Plan), there is a family deductible of $3,700. The combined family unit must meet the $3,700 deductible before coinsurance begins. This deductible can be met by any combination of family members (including only by one of them), but the only way for coinsurance to begin for any family member is when the entire $3,700 family deductible is satisfied.
  • In the $900, $2,850 and $4,500 Deductible Plans, there is an embedded individual deductible. As an example, let’s use the $2,850 plan, which has a $5,700 family deductible. If the combined family unit meets this $5,700 deductible, then coinsurance begins for the entire family. In addition, the embedded individual deductible provides that if one family member’s expenses on their own reach the $2,850 amount, then coinsurance will begin for that family member only. This means there are two ways for coinsurance to kick in for these plans – either on a combined family basis or also on an individual basis.
  • Find a Doctor

    Using in-network providers saves you money. Here’s how to find doctors in your medical plan network.

    1. First, determine the medical carrier in your area.

    You will have either Aetna or UnitedHealthcare as your medical plan carrier, based on the state you live in. Aligning a medical carrier to each state gives you access to the best service, most competitive discounts and an extensive network of providers and facilities available.

    Medical plan carrier by state 
    Aetna
    Arizona
    California*
    District of Columbia*
    Delaware
    Georgia*
    Kansas
    Maine
    New Jersey
    Nevada
    New York
    Oklahoma
    Oregon
    Pennsylvania
    Utah
    Washington
    West Virginia
    UnitedHealthcare
    Alabama
    Alaska
    Arkansas
    Colorado*
    Connecticut
    Florida
    Idaho
    Illinois
    Indiana
    Iowa
    Kentucky
    Louisiana
    Massachusetts
    Maryland*
    Michigan
    Minnesota
    Mississippi
    Missouri
    Montana
    North Carolina
    North Dakota
    Nebraska
    New Hampshire
    New Mexico
    Ohio
    Rhode Island
    South Dakota
    Tennessee
    Texas
    Virginia*
    Vermont
    Wisconsin
    Wyoming
    *If you live in California, Colorado, the District of Columbia, Georgia, Maryland or Virginia, Kaiser may be an additional medical carrier option that provides in-network coverage only (availability depends on your home ZIP code). Kaiser is an HMO, and all your care must be coordinated by your Primary Care Provider (PCP).

    2. Second, go to your carrier’s website to find in-network providers.

    Aetna

    • Visit Aetna at aetna.com.
    • Click “Individuals” from the home page
    • Click on “Find a Doctor” from the Quick Links menu.
    • Under “Guests” click on “Plan from an employer.”
    • Under “Continue as a guest,” enter home zip code and click “Search.”
    • Under “Select a Plan,” select “Aetna Choice POS II (Open Access)” network under “Aetna Open Access Plans” and click “Continue.”
    • You can either enter a provider name, specialty, procedure or condition in the search field, or click on a category.

    United Healthcare

    • Visit United Healthcare at myuhc.com.
    • Select “Find a Provider.”
    • Select either "Medical Directory” or “Behavioral Health Directory” as appropriate.
    • Select “All United Healthcare plans,” followed by “Shopping Around” and “Choice Plus.”
    • Enter your ZIP code to continue your search. You can provide a Doctor Name or Specialty, Facility Name, Clinic Name or Medical Group Name. Or, under “Find Health Care by Category,” you can click on People, Places, Services and Treatments, or Care by Condition.

    Kaiser

    Don’t have a personal doctor? You should. Here’s why.
    • Better health. Having a personal relationship with a doctor ensures you’re getting the right health screenings each year, which can reduce your risk for many serious conditions. Preventive care is free, so there’s no excuse for skipping it.
    • A healthier wallet. Having a doctor you can call helps you avoid costly trips to the emergency room and decide when you really need to see a specialist.
    • Peace of mind. Advice from someone you trust ... it means a lot when you’re healthy, but it’s even more important when you’re sick. Your personal doctor gets to know you and your health history and can help coordinate any care you need.

    Keep in mind: If you choose a Kaiser plan in California, Colorado, the District of Columbia, Georgia, Maryland or Virginia, you are required to select a Primary Care Provider (PCP), who will manage your care.

    Prescription Drugs

    When you enroll in a Transamerica medical plan, you will automatically receive prescription drug coverage. Benefits are provided by Express Scripts for Aetna and United Healthcare plans, and by Kaiser Pharmacy for Kaiser plans.

    Once you enroll for medical coverage, you will receive a prescription drug ID card from Express Scripts or Kaiser Pharmacy within 30 days of enrollment.

    Drug tiers

    The cost of your prescription drugs under each medical plan depends on the “tier” of the medication:

    • Tier 1 drugs include most generics; these drugs contain the same active ingredients as their brand-name equivalents and meet the same federal standards for safety, but typically cost significantly less.
    • Tier 2, or formulary drugs, are brand-name medications that are preferred by a prescription plan based on drug effectiveness and cost.
    • Tier 3, or non-formulary drugs, are brand-name medications that are not on a prescription plan's preferred list (or formulary) based on drug effectiveness and cost. They may still be covered, but may require prior authorization and cost more.

    Filling your prescription

    The cost of prescription drugs is rising faster than many other health care services and supplies. But there are ways for you to save money when you’re filling prescriptions:

    • Retail or mail order? For short-term medication needs, such as antibiotics, a retail pharmacy is your best and most convenient option. 

      Long-term medications are prescriptions you take for an ongoing condition such as high blood pressure. After three retail prescription fills for long-term medications, you need to either use Express Scripts mail-order pharmacy or the Smart90 program and pick up a three-month supply of your medication at CVS or Walgreens. If you don’t use one of these options, you’ll pay 100% of the prescription cost at a retail pharmacy.

    • Generic or brand name? Generic medications are generally just as effective as brand-name medications, yet the cost of generics is substantially lower ― they typically cost between 30% and 75% less than brand-name drugs.

      If you choose a brand-name drug when a generic is available, you will pay the cost of the generic drug plus the difference in cost between the generic and the brand name. Although you may use any available HSA or FSA funds to pay for the brand-name prescription, the difference in cost is not a covered expense under the plan, and will not apply to your deductible or out-of-pocket maximum.

    • Certain compound medications are not covered under the prescription drug plan. To be covered under the drug plan, a medication must be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). While certain ingredients in the compound may be FDA approved, the resulting medication after compounding may not be. The FDA does not verify the quality, safety or effectiveness of compound medications.

    • Specialty medications are drugs used to treat complex conditions, such as cancer, growth hormone deficiency, hemophilia, hepatitis C, immune deficiency, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis. If you take a specialty medication, you should purchase it through the specialty pharmacy offered by your medical plan.
      • Accredo is the specialty pharmacy for United Healthcare and Aetna plans.
      • Kaiser’s specialty pharmacy will vary by location. Please contact Kaiser for more information.

    Please note: If you receive manufacturer coupons, discount cards or copay assistance for specialty medication, the amount applied to your annual deductible and out-of-pocket maximum will equal the amount you pay for your prescription drug after the coupon or discount is applied.

    Prescription management programs

    We have partnered with Express Scripts to offer prescription drug management programs to help you use your prescription drugs safely and effectively, as well as save money. These programs automatically apply to all participants who choose either a UHC or Aetna medical plan. (Note: These programs do not apply to Kaiser plans.)

    Specialty Deductible/Out-of-Pocket Protection Program

    Provides copay assistance toward the purchase of certain specialty medications. However, only the amount you pay towards your specialty prescriptions will be applied to your deductible and out-of-pocket maximum.

    Safeguard Rx: Diabetes Care Value Program

    If you have diabetes, this program helps you monitor and control your glucose levels. With Diabetes Remote Monitoring, you will receive a free smart glucose meter that synchronizes with your smartphone and securely sends data to specialist pharmacists who are available to support you. You can also access Mango Health, which offers a mobile app with games and rewards for healthy habits, such as taking medication on time.

    Advanced Opioid Management Program

    Opioids are a highly effective treatment for pain when taken correctly, but they can also be addictive. If you take prescription opioids for pain, Express Scripts will send you a letter and a short guide with important guidelines and tips to help you stay safe, as well as a number you can call with any questions or concerns.

    Maintenance Medications

    If you take a long-term or “maintenance” medication to manage a health condition like high blood pressure, diabetes or high cholesterol, the Smart90 program gives you the option to pick up a three-month supply of your medication at a CVS or Walgreens, or have your medication shipped to your home using Express Scripts mail-order pharmacy.

    With a three-month supply of your medicine on hand, you're less likely to miss a dose, which can keep you healthier and save money.

    With Express Scripts, you can:

    • Get prescriptions delivered to your door with free standard shipping, or with Smart90 pick up a three month supply at a CVS or Walgreens near you
    • Transfer prescriptions easily online, by phone or via Express Scripts® mobile app
    • Set up auto-refills and refill reminders
    • Talk with a pharmacist by phone 24/7

    To get started, log in to esrx.com review your 90-day options. If this is your first time visiting the site, take a minute to register (be sure you have your member ID number handy). You can also use the Express Scripts mobile app on your digital device to locate a participating pharmacy or call Express Scripts at the number listed on the back of your member ID card.

    If you choose to use Express Scripts home delivery for your 90-day supply of your maintenance medication, you can either have your doctor send the prescription directly to Express Scripts or use the Express Scripts website to initiate the transfer to home delivery. If you’d prefer to get a 90-day supply at a CVS or Walgreens, you can have your doctor provide CVS or Walgreens with a 90-day prescription, ask the pharmacist to contact your doctor if you already have a prescription on file at the pharmacy, or to transfer your current 90-day prescriptions from another pharmacy.
