2020 Recruitment Guide


Together, we grow stronger in our mission. As the largest employer in the Monadnock Region, Cheshire Medical Center recognizes that we have great responsibilities―both to the communities we serve and to our employees who come together each day to provide patient-centered care. I am proud to share in Cheshire’s commitment to a meaningful and fulfilling work environment that values our employees’ contributions. The vast majority of our employees live in this region—raising families and caring for loved ones here. When we speak of caring for our community, it is a deeply personal conversation for all of us. For over 125 years, we have been working with local partners to advance the health and wellness of every member of our community. Those partnerships, along with Cheshire’s membership in the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health system, are helping our organization to be stronger than ever. Together, we are finding innovative ways to ensure sustainable, high quality healthcare into the future. For example, through the support of the health system, Cheshire has increased inpatient capacity and expanded our capabilities in critical care. We are also seeing the benefits of new business systems, including our electronic medical record system. We have just completed the last year of a 3-Year Strategic Plan with 4 key areas of focus: Patient Experience, Community Health, Staff Resilience, and Organizational Sustainability. Central to each of these is our priority of quality and safety in all that we do. I am pleased to share that the progress of our strategic plan in this current fiscal year indicates that we are on the right path. I hope you will consider joining our team at Cheshire Medical Center. Together, we can continue to grow stronger in our mission of leading our community to optimal health and wellness through clinical service excellence, collaboration, and compassion for every patient, every time.

The core belief that the health and wellness of every member of our community matters fuels our mission and

our goals.

Medical and Prescription Drug Insurance Helpful Information The CMC medical and prescription drug program is designed to offer employees choice of quality health care options. We encourage employees and dependents to establish a relationship with a primary care provider (PCP) or practice to oversee their health and coordinate their care.

Medical Insurance Premiums The employee premiums that are deducted from your paycheck are based on the coverage level and your base annual salary. However, premiums will not differ based on the plan you choose.

Preventive Care Services

As we focus on helping employees maintain good health, we continue to offer in-network medical preventive care services covered at 100%, with no deductibles, co-pays, or co-insurance. Examples of preventive covered services include routine: mammograms, colonoscopies, labs, immunizations, well-child care for babies and children, and physicals for adults. For a more complete list of covered preventive care services, please refer to the Summary Plan Description. The list is also available at IRS.gov or by contacting Health Plans, Inc. as referenced above.

Prescription Drugs

You must enroll in a CMC medical plan to participate in the prescription drug coverage. The cost of prescription drugs continues to increase year-after-year, particularly the cost of specialty drugs. Employees may save money by purchasing a 90-day supply of maintenance drugs. The 90-day supply of drugs may only be purchased through the DHMC Pharmacy (in-person or mail-order) or in person at CMC Pharmacy. If not available through DHMC or CMC, 90 day prescriptions may be obtained through Optum Rx mail order. Employees may find additional savings by utilizing prescription coupons made available at various websites such as GoodRx.com, Target.com and Walmart.com. See the Appendix for additional resources and information.

Cheshire Medical Center 2020 Recruitment Guide

Preventive Drug List

Preventative drug coverage is an integral part of a comprehensive health care plan which includes preventive drug therapy. Preventive medications are those prescribed to prevent the occurrence of a disease or conditions for those individuals with risk factors, or to prevent the reoccurrence of a disease or condition for those who have recovered: conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, asthma, osteoporosis, and heart attack. In our ElevateHealth HSA plan and our Choice Health Plan, drugs on the Preventive Drug List will by-pass the deductible and only require you to pay co-insurance. Optum Rx manages this program and the list of drugs included in the Preventive Drug Program.

Prescription Advantage

The prescription Advantage Program provides discounted rates on certain approved prescription drugs (those on the Prescription Advantage Drug List) purchased at the DHMC Pharmacy, whether purchased in person or through the mail. The DHMC Pharmacy will mail these prescriptions to you at no cost. This is a special program offered through the DHMC Pharmacy. Employees and dependents are eligible for this program, regardless of participation in a CMC Medical Plan.

Diabetes Management Program All employees and their dependents who are on diabetic medications and enrolled in a CMC medical plan will have zero copay for any diabetic drug that is covered on the OptumRx formulary and is filled at the DHMC Pharmacy or Cheshire Medical Center Retail Pharmacy. This includes all diabetic test strips, lancets, insulin, metformin and other diabetes medications. In addition, diabetic medical supplies obtained through a participating Durable Medical Equipment (DME) provider will be covered by the CMC medical plans with a zero cost to the employee. This includes supplies for insulin pumps such as reservoirs and infusion sets.


Low Premium Medical/Prescription Drug Plans ElevateHealth is an insurance partnership of Dartmouth Hitchcock, Elliot Health System, and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care. Employees who enroll in one of the two ElevateHealth plans may expect care from a high quality, close-knit network of providers focused on keeping you healthy and well. ElevateHealth Providers and facilities are located where most CMC employees and their families are seeking care today; primarily in New Hampshire and Vermont. (Providers outside of the ElevateHealth Network are not covered, except in case of Emergency Care). Dependents living outside of the ElevateHealth Network have expanded in-network coverage using the Harvard Pilgrim National Network once the Out-of-Area Dependent Form is completed and submitted to Health Plans, Inc. Since we understand that the ElevateHealth Plans are not a “one size fits all�, we have the Choice Health HSA Plan offering to provide a full network with national coverage for employees and their family members.

Additional Premium May Apply Tobacco Use Premium The Cheshire Medical Center medical plans require employees to affirm whether they, or any of their covered dependents, use tobacco. Covered dependents include spouse or any children enrolled in the plan. Employees may be subject to a tobacco surcharge of $15.00 per bi-weekly pay period. It is important to note that the surcharge will be $15.00 per pay period regardless of the number of family members who use tobacco. If, at any point throughout the year, the tobacco user(s) stops using tobacco products and are tobacco free for 30 calendar days, the covered employee will be required to sign an affidavit. If an employee or his/her covered dependents are unable to achieve tobacco-free status for medical reasons, physician documentation is required in order to waive the surcharge. Tobacco products include: cigarettes, pipes, cigars, snuff or chewing tobacco, and electronic cigarettes.

Spousal Surcharge If you choose to cover your spouse under a Cheshire Medical Center medical plan, and your spouse has access to group-sponsored health insurance coverage through his/her own employer, your 2020 health care contributions will be twice the standard premium for the coverage you choose to enroll in.

Cheshire Medical Center 2020 Recruitment Guide

Health Savings Account (HSA) The HSA is a tax-free savings account that can be used to pay for qualified out-of-pocket medical, dental or vision care expenses, as well as to save for future health care costs. CMC provides a base contribution to each eligible employee’s HSA account enrolling in the ElevateHealth HSA Plan or the Choice Health HSA Plan. Employees may opt out of the HSA contribution. The Health Savings Account will be administered by HealthEquity, Inc. For a list of eligible expenses visit HealthEquity.com.

HSA Eligibility 1. Neither you or your spouse are enrolled in a Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) or full purpose Healthcare Flexible Spending Account (FSA) 2. Not claimed as a dependent on another’s tax return. 3. Not enrolled in Medicare. 4. Not insured under any other medical plan that is not a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). 5. Have not received VA benefits (Medical or Rx) during the past 3 months. Upon turning age 65 and enrolling in Medicare A, or being in receipt of Medicare due to one of Medicare’s qualifying eligibility rules, an employee is not eligible to receive or contribute to the HSA. Any funds still in the account are accessible for qualified expenses. However, if a member defers his/her enrollment in Medicare s/he is able to participate in the HSA benefit. During the Open Enrollment period employees must attest that they meet eligibility requirements in order to receive a contribution.

Activating your Account (New HSA Participants) To activate your new HSA through Health Equity Inc. you must: 1. Register online at myhealthequity.com and create a username and password. 2. Name a beneficiary for your account. 3. Call HealthEquity, Inc. to activate your debit card once received at 866-346-5800. Instructions to activate your account will be mailed to your home. In addition, you will receive a personalized debit card to use when paying for your eligible health care expenses.

Contributions to Your HSA Account CMC Contribution To help you pay for some of the expenses associated with the ElevateHealth HSA Plan or the Choice Health Plan, CMC will make a lumpsum contribution to each eligible employee’s HSA, based on the coverage level elected and the employee’s annual base salary. CMC will contribute the following tax-free contribution for 2020: Base Annual Salary HSA Single/HSA Family $0 - $34,999 $800/$1,600 $35,000 - $74,999 $600/$900 $75,000 + $400/$700 The HSA employer contribution will be available to employees as of the first paycheck of 2020. If you are a new hire or you are newly benefits eligible and eligible for an HSA contribution in 2020, you will receive a pro-rated lump-sum contribution in the first pay period of the month following your benefits eligibility.

Your Contributions In addition to CMC’s contribution, you may elect to make additional pre-tax contributions to your HSA through payroll deductions, subject to IRS annual limits. For 2020, the limit is $3,550 for employee only coverage and $7,100 for all other coverage levels. These amounts represent the total amount (your contributions plus CMC’s contribution) that can be deposited into your account in 2020. Employees who are age 55 or older in 2020 may also make additional “catch-up” contributions of up to $1,000 to their HSA. Remember, the amount you contribute to your HSA is pre-tax and the dollars that are deposited in your HSA belong to you, whether deposited by you or CMC. The HSA does not have a “use it or lose it” rule, so you can carry-over your balance from year-to-year and you can take the account with you if you leave or retire from CMC. You may start, stop, or change your HSA payroll contribution amount at any time during the year through the benefit portal.

Cheshire Medical Center 2020 Recruitment Guide


Health Savings Account (HSA) continued Penalties for Non-Eligible Health Care Expenses under an HSA The IRS governs the provisions of the HSA and provides guidelines on what is considered an eligible health care expense. If you use your HSA funds to pay for non-eligible health care expenses, you may be subject to a 20% penalty and your non-eligible expense will be treated as taxable income. In the event of an IRS audit, employees must show receipts of eligible health care expenses reimbursed. For more information, please refer to IRS.gov/pub969. Remember: If elected, it is your responsibility to keep accurate records to prove to the IRS that distributions were for qualified medical, dental or vision expenses. Save all documentation for IRS auditing purposes. IRS Form 8889 is required to be filed with your taxes. Forms are available online at IRS.gov.

Limited Purpose Flexible Spending Account (LP-FSA) In addition to the HSA account, employees who elect the Elevate Health HSA Plan or the Choice Health HSA Plan may also participate in the LP-FSA. The LP-FSA may be used to pay for eligible dental or vision care expenses for you and your eligible dependents. Medical expenses may not be applied towards the LP-FSA. The CMC 2020 maximum limit you may contribute to your account is $2,700.

Cheshire Medical Center 2020 Recruitment Guide

11


Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) The HRA is a savings account that can be used to pay for eligible out–of-pocket health care, dental, or vision expenses. Only CMC can contribute to an HRA and will provide a contribution for employees who enroll in the ElevateHealth HRA Plan. Once your HRA is activated through HealthEquity, you will receive a personalized debit card to use when paying for your eligible expenses. You will also have access to Health Equity’s on-line system to help you manage your HRA. The balance in your HRA account accumulates and rolls-over each year if you continue to enroll in the ElevateHealth HRA Plan. HRAs are employer based accounts so you will not have access to the HRA if you enroll in a different plan, leave, or retire from CMC.

Contributions to Your HRA Account CMC Contributions: To help you pay for some of the expenses that will be subject to your health care plan deductible and co-insurance, if you enroll in the ElevateHealth HRA plan and are eligible for HRA contributions, CMC will make a contribution to your HRA based on the coverage level you elect and your annual base salary. CMC will contribute the following amounts for 2020: Base Annual Salary Single/All other coverage levels $0 - $34,999 $600/$1,200 $35,000 - $74,999 $300/$600 $75,000 + $150/$300 The CMC contribution will be deposited into your HRA account as a lump sum deposit with your first paycheck of 2020.

Your Contributions: Employees cannot make contributions to an HRA, but can contribute to the Full Purpose Medical FSA which offers pre-tax savings. If you are a new hire in 2020 or you are newly eligible in 2020, you will receive a pro-rated lump sum contribution in the first pay period of the month following your benefits eligibility.

12

Cheshire Medical Center 2020 Recruitment Guide


Flexible Spending Account (FSA) Full Purpose Medical FSA (FP-Medical FSA)

The FP-Medical FSA is a pre-tax savings account available to employees who waive health care coverage, are in either the Cheshire Medical Center PHO Plan or the ElevateHealth HRA Plan, or are ineligible to participate in the HSA contribution. The FP-Medical FSA can be used to pay for eligible health care, dental, or vision care expenses that are not covered by insurance for you and your eligible dependents. The maximum amount you may contribute to your FSA is $2,700 for 2020.

Limited Purpose Medical FSA (LP-Medical FSA)

The LP-Medical FSA is a pre-tax savings account available to employees who are enrolled in the Elevate Health HSA or Choice Health Plans. The LP-Medical FSA can only be used to pay for eligible dental or vision care expenses but cannot be used to pay for eligible health care expenses. This allows for additional pre-tax savings for those who will be incurring eligible dental and vision expenses in the calendar year while allowing the HSA funds to be preserved for medical expenses only. The same annual limits and deadlines for submission that apply to the FP-Medical FSA apply to the LP-Medical FSA as well as the “qualified life event” requirements to make a change to the LP-Medical FSA.

Dependent Care FSA (DC-FSA)

The DC-FSA is a pre-tax savings account that may be used to pay for eligible elder and/or child care expenses so that you can be gainfully employed. You may only use this account if you utilize child care or elder care services so that you and your spouse can work, obtain gainful employment, or attend school full-time. It is important to note that your child care or elder care provider must furnish you with his/her Social Security Number (SSN) or Tax Identification Number (TIN) in order to receive reimbursement for your expenses. IRS regulations limit the amount you may contribute to a DC-FSA to $5,000 for your family (or $2,500 if married and filing separate tax returns) per calendar year. In order to qualify for reimbursement, expenses must be incurred for the care of “eligible dependents” who the IRS defines as: • A child under the age of 13, or a child of any age who is physically or mentally incapable of self-care. • Any other dependent (including your same sex spouse) who is physically or mentally incapable of self-care and who meets specific criteria. For more details about who qualifies as eligible dependents under the DC-FSA, refer to IRS Publication 503, titled Child and Dependent Care Expenses, which is available by calling the IRS at 800-829-1040 or at IRS.gov. Health Equity administers both the medical and dependent care Flexible Spending Accounts. Participants in the Medical FSA will receive a personalized debit card from Health Equity to use when paying for eligible health care expenses.

Dental Insurance Cheshire Medical Center offers two Dental Plan options for you and your eligible dependents through Northeast Delta Dental: • Basic Dental • Enhanced Dental Dental hygiene can impact your overall physical health. Practicing good oral care, such as brushing and flossing daily and visiting your dentist on a regular basis, are important steps toward keeping your mouth free from the build-up of bacteria that can lead to oral infections. Preventive screenings (dental check-ups and cleanings) can also help detect signs of other diseases.

Enhanced Dental Carryover Benefit Northeast Delta Dental offers a “Double-Up Max” carry-over benefit feature on the High Option Dental Plan.

To Qualify • Members are enrolled in the Enhanced Dental Plan. • Northeast Delta Dental must have paid a claim for either an oral exam or a cleaning during the 2019 calendar year. If enrollees don’t receive one of these services, they will be ineligible to accumulate dollars for future use. • A member’s paid claims during the calendar year cannot exceed a threshold of $500. • Accumulated amounts may only be used after the current annual maximum has been exhausted. • Carryover benefit amounts cannot be used toward lifetime orthodontic benefits.

How it Works With this feature, enrollees may double their annual maximum by accumulating $250 a year in additional benefits for use in future coverage periods. When a dental procedure is needed that costs more than the allowable annual maximum, the accrued carryover benefit dollars can help make up the difference.

Health Through Oral Wellness (HOW) Program Northeast Delta Dental’s free HOW program works with your existing dental benefits to help you achieve and maintain better oral wellness. You can visit HealthThroughOralWellness.com to find out more and take a free oral health risk assessment. Your dentist can discuss your results with you at your next visit and perform a clinical version of the assessment. Based on your risk, as shown on your clinical assessment, you may be eligible for additional preventative benefits at no cost.
