Health Care HMSA Preferred Provider Organization
HMSAâ€™s Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) health plan is a cornerstone to our approach to health. The HMSA PPO Plan provides the security of comprehensive coverage with a focus on preventive care. As a member of the HMSA health plan, you can take an active role in your health care decisions, by choosing HMSA Participating Providers. This approach gives you more control of your health care expenses. The HMSA health plan also provides you with educational resources, decision-making tools and easy access to information. See page 19 for benefit premiums/price tags.
You should use the providers in the network offered by HMSA to receive the highest level of benefits. These in-network providers are contracted at a savings for both plan and member. Your benefits may be different depending on the category of provider that you receive care from. In general, you will get the maximum benefit possible when you receive services from an HMSA participating provider. HMSA also provides national access to a comprehensive network of providers, including on the mainland through BlueCard PPO. It is the memberâ€™s responsibility to confirm they are using an in-network provider prior to the first visit or service.
Health Care Prescription Drug Coverage
HMSA provides you with comprehensive prescription coverage, as part of your HMSA benefits. The national network of pharmacies provides 30-day supplies to plan members as well as 90day supplies at preferred providers and mail-order prescriptions. HMSA provides members with important pharmacy information, including your claims and benefits, medication education and prices, and mail-order services.
The HMSA PPO health plan covers preventive care at 100%. This means you and your covered dependents are eligible for important preventive services, which can help you avoid illness and improve your health. You will not have to pay towards your deductible and cost-share to receive preventive health services from an in-network provider. These services include recommended screenings, vaccinations and counseling.
Health Care Flexible Spending Account
A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is provided to allow you to pay for eligible expenses with pre-tax dollars. The Health Care FSA may be used for reimbursement of eligible medical expenses incurred by you and/or your eligible dependents. â€˘ Your minimum annual deposit to the FSA is $250 â€˘ Your maximum annual deposit to the FSA is $2,700 You do not have to be enrolled in the health plan to enroll in the FSA. FSA dollars do not rollover from year to year and must be used by March 15 of the following plan year.
Dental Health The Dental Plan is administered by Delta Dental of Missouri, which covers four classes of treatment in our two-tiered national network including preventive services, basic services, major services and orthodontics. Preventive care is covered with no deductibles, and basic and major dental are covered with a deductible and cost share.

Leaves & Disability Plans Leaves
Occasionally associates experience situations that require them to be away from their work. Cerner provides a comprehensive set of absence and leave policies, including bereavement, parental and military leave, to allow associates to balance personal and work needs. For length of leave, eligibility and benefits contingency, please refer to the Cerner Absence and Leave Policy.
Short Term Disability
As a Hawaii associate, you have two plans that provide income replacement when you are unable to work during your own serious medical condition. The first plan, through USAble, is a Temporary Disability Income (TDI) plan that provides coverage on your first day of employment. You also are covered by Cerner’s Short Term Disability (STD) program. This policy has a one week waiting period, before paying 100% of your base salary for 7 weeks. After 7 weeks, the policy provides 60% of your base salary for an additional 5 weeks. Any benefit you receive from TDI will offset your Cerner STD benefit. Once STD and TDI has been exhausted you may be eligible for Long Term Disability benefits, if you have enrolled.
Long Term Disability
The Long Term Disability (LTD) plan provides you with income equal to 50% or 60%* of your insured salary in the event you become disabled and are unable to work due to medical reasons. The premium is paid with after-tax dollars so that the benefit, if ever needed, is non-taxable. Long Term Disability will typically not run concurrent with a leave. Our benefit partner for this plan is Principal Financial Group. *Benefits-eligible associates are automatically enrolled at their time of hire in the 60% plan and are responsible for the applicable premiums. Associates may choose to reduce or waive their coverage during enrollment periods.
Adoption Leave and Assistance
Cerner recognizes the costs associated with adopting children and supports adoptive parents by offering financial assistance for adoption fees and a paid adoption leave. You may receive reimbursement for expenses up to $5,000 per adoption.
Family Leave Benefits

Parental Bonding pay for all new parents, including dads, same gender partners and adoptive parents, provides 4 weeks of pay to care for and focus on bonding with your child. Caregiving for family goes beyond welcoming a newborn, and we want to ensure our associates can take the time needed to care for family members facing health challenges or illness. All associates with at least one year of service that need time away to care for a qualified family member are eligible for up to 4 weeks of Caregiver pay. If you are standardly scheduled to work less than 20 hours per week, and have at least 1 year of service, you are eligibile for modified Types of Leaves family leave benefits.

Supplemental Insurance: MetLife MetLife is different from major medical insurance. If you’re sick or injured, MetLife pays cash benefits directly to you to help address out-of-pocket medical costs and everyday expenses. MetLife voluntary insurance provides the added comfort of being better prepared for whatever life may bring.
Personal Accident After an off-the-job accident, you may have expenses you’ve never thought about. It’s reassuring to know that an accident insurance plan can be there for you through the many stages of care, from the initial emergency treatment or hospitalization, to follow-up treatments or physical therapy. Personal Accident insurance (with the advantage of group rates) helps with out-of-pocket costs that arise when you have a covered accident such as a fracture, dislocation, or laceration.
Benefits: • More than 50 events that trigger benefits payments • Outpatient Medical Benefit • Hospital Admission Benefit • Hospital Confinement Benefit • Guaranteed-issue coverage with no underwriting required • Portable coverage that allows associates to retain coverage at the same rate if their employment status changes
The MetLife Critical Illness Insurance plan can help with the treatment costs of covered critical illnesses, such as cancer, a heart attack, or a stroke. More importantly, the plan helps you focus on recuperation instead of the distraction and stress over the costs of medical bills. With Critical Illness Insurance, you receive cash benefits directly (unless otherwise assigned)— giving you the flexibility to help pay bills related to treatment or to help with everyday living expenses.
• Lump-sum benefit for a covered critical illness such as: cancer, heart attack, stroke, major organ transplant, and end-stage renal failure • Benefit for a recurrence of the same critical illness if separated by at least 12 months • An additional occurrence of a different critical illness if separated by at least 6 months • A wellness benefit is provided if you complete at least one covered health screening • A choice between two coverage levels: $10,000 and $20,000

Long Term Care Long Term Care
Long Term Care insurance provides you with the financial protection against the costs associated with custodial care. Typically, this is the care needed when a person requires assistance with the activities of daily living (such as eating, bathing, dressing, transferring, etc.) or care due to cognitive impairment (such as Alzheimerâ€™s disease or dementia). Care can be received at home, in an assisted living facility or in a nursing home. Your spouse or domestic partner and extended family members (parents, grandparents, in-laws, adult siblings and adult children) are also eligible for the group rates. You may enroll an eligible dependent regardless of your own enrollment in this Plan. Long Term Care coverage is age-rated. The younger the individual is at the age of application the less expensive the rates. Your rates do not go up as you get older, unless you make changes. This coverage is portable at the same affordable group rates and is paid for with post-tax premiums.

Glossary This glossary has many commonly used terms in the health benefits plan and other medical terms. These are not contract terms. Allowed Amount Maximum amount on which payment is based for covered health care services. This may be called “eligible expense,” “payment allowance” or “negotiated rate.” If your provider charges more than the allowed amount, you may have to pay the difference. Annual Enrollment Period Period designated by Cerner during which you may enroll for plan coverage. Annual Maximum The maximum dollar amount a participant is required to pay out-of-pocket during the plan year. Until this maximum is met, the plan and participant share in the cost of covered expenses. Appeal A request that your health insurer or plan review a decision that denies benefit or payment (either in whole or in part). Balance Billing When a provider bills you for the difference between the provider’s charge and the allowed amount. For example, if the provider’s charge is $100 and the allowed amount is $70, the provider may bill you for the remaining $30. A preferred provider may not balance bill you for covered services. Claim A request for a benefit (including reimbursement of a health care expense) made by you or your health care provider to your health insure or plan for items or services you think are covered. Cost Share Your share of the costs of a covered health care service, calculated as a percentage (for example, 20%) of the allowed amount for the service. You generally pay for cost share plus any deductibles you owe. For example, if the health insurance or plan’s allowed amount for an office visit is $100 and you’ve met your deductible, your cost share payment of 20% would be $20. The health insurance or plan would pay the rest of the allowed amount. Coverage level The scope of protection provided by your benefits plan based on the amount of dependents you cover. Deductible The amount you could owe during a coverage period (usually one year) for health care services your health insurance or plan covers before your health insurance or plan begins to pay. For example, if your deductible is $1000, your plan won’t pay anything until you’ve met your $1000 deductible for covered health care services subject to the deductible. The deductible may not apply to all services. Dependent As defined by the plan, a dependent may be someone who is eligible to be covered under the plan. Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Equipment and supplies ordered by a health care provider for everyday or extended use. DME may include: oxygen equipment, wheelchairs, crutches or blood testing strips for diabetics.
Emergency Medical Condition An illness, injury, symptom or condition that is severe enough (including severe pain), that if you did not get immediate medical attention, you could reasonably expect one of the following to result: 1) Your health would be put in serious danger; or 2) You would have serious problems with your bodily functions; or 3) You would have serious damage to any part or organ of your body. Emergency Medical Transportation Ambulance services for an emergency medical condition. Types of emergency medical transportation may include transportation by air, land, or sea. Your plan or health insurance may not cover all types of emergency medical transportation, or may pay less for certain types. Excluded Services Health care services that your health insurance or plan doesn’t pay for or cover. Habilitation Services Health care services that help a person keep, learn or improve skills and functioning for daily living. Examples include therapy for a child who isn’t walking or talking at the expected age.
