2020 Benefits Guide


Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) The HRA is designed to help members reduce their out-of-pocket costs for eligible medical expenses that apply to your annual deductible if you elect coverage in the Kaiser HDHP Signature 4 and the Flex Choice Signature Plan 20. NCIA will fund $500 for Individuals and $1,000 for Families under the Health Reimbursement Arrangement. Discovery Benefits will administer these accounts. Once claims are processed, any HRA claims are then processed by Discovery and paid directly to your medical providers or to the Pharmacies. Members are responsible for covering any difference between the HRA account and their deductible. Please note: the HRA will no longer be the default pre-tax account because NCIA now offers the Health Savings Account (HSA) as the default. Employees are able to select either the HSA or the HRA. For additional details on the HSA, see next page.

Basic HRA Concept Part I: High deductible health plan Health Insurance plan which pays benefits once the initial deductible is met.

Part II: Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) Funded by NCIA: $500 for Individual / $1,000 for Family

7

2020 Benefits Guide


Health Savings Account (HSA) NCIA offers a default Health Savings Account (HSA) via payroll deduction to enrolled employees who elect the HSA instead of the HRA. By selecting the HSA, employees will save on payroll taxes. NCIA will also contribute $250 to Individuals and $500 to Families with the HSA.

NEW THIS YEAR

Deposit, Grow, Save and Pay. Deposit your health care dollars • •

Deposits — Deposit forms, website and online transfers from your bank. Contribution limits — The IRS sets guidelines for how much you can contribute to an HSA each year. In addition to NCIA’s contribution to your account, you are able to voluntarily contribute up to the individual, family, and catch-up amounts that you can find in the table below.

Grow your savings • •

Earnings — Deposits to your HSA could earn income tax-free interest. Carry-over — There is no “use it or lose it.” Unspent funds remain in your account.

Save on taxes • • •

Contributions — Contributions to your HSA are tax-deductible up to the annual limit. Distributions — HSA funds used to pay for qualified medical expenses are tax-free. Earnings — Interest you may earn on your HSA grows income tax free.

Pay for health care, now or later • • •

Qualified medical expenses — Pay for current and future medical expenses for you, your spouse and your eligible dependents. You can continue to use the funds in your account even if you stop participating in a high-deductible health plan (although you cannot contribute more to it). Payment methods — Use your debit card to pay pharmacies, doctors, clinics and other health care providers on the spot. Or, withdraw funds to reimburse yourself for out-of-pocket expenses. Tax implications — It’s up to you to maintain records to verify that funds were used for qualified medical expenses. Funds used for nonqualified expenses will be taxed as income and subject to a 20% penalty. If you are 65 and older, the 20% penalty does not apply.

Annual HSA Contribution Limits The IRS sets HSA contribution limits for each calendar year. These limits include employer contributions as well as any contributions you make through payroll deductions. When you are age 55 or older, you’re also eligible to make “catch-up” contributions which allow employees closer to retirement to save more for post-retirement medical expenses. The HSA catch-up contribution limit is $1,000. Calendar Year 2020 / 2021 HSA Contribution Limits* If you… Have employee only coverage Cover dependents Are age 55+ and have employee-only coverage* Are age 55+ and cover dependents*

You may contribute up to… $3,550 / $3,600 $7,100 / $7,200 $4,550 / $4,600 $8,100 / $8,200

* If you do not contribute the max in your base HSA, the catch-up contribution won't be as meaningful because it is meant to allow you to contribute more than the annual limit *Not everyone is eligible to participate in an HSA. If you are enrolled in TRICARE, Medicare Part A, or another plan that is not a high deductible health plan, you are not eligible to enroll in an HSA.

2020 Benefits Guide


Voluntary Worksite Benefits NCIA provides employees with the option to enroll in voluntary Group Accident Insurance, Critical Illness Insurance, Hospital Indemnity Insurance, and Whole Life Insurance through Unum. The cost of these benefits depends on the type and coverage selected. Employees pay 100% of the cost through payroll deduction. Please contact UNUM with any questions at unum.com or call 866-679-3054.

Benefit Group Accident Insurance

Critical Illness Insurance

Details Unum’s coverage provides a lump sum benefit based on the type of injury (or covered incident) you sustain or the type of treatment you need. Accident Insurance can provide benefits for covered accidents that occur on and off the job. It is offered to all eligible employees who are actively at work. You decide if it’s right for you and your family. How can Critical Illness insurance help? Critical Illness insurance can pay a lump sum benefit at the diagnosis of a critical illness. You can choose to purchase $5,000 to $50,000 of coverage in increments of $1,000 – and you can use the money any way you see fit. Covered Conditions Include: Heart attack, Major organ failure, Occupational HIV, Benign brain tumor, Blindness, End-stage renal (kidney) failure, and Coronary artery bypass surgery (pays 25% of lump sum benefit). Covered Conditions with Time Limitations: Stroke, Coma, and Permanent paralysis.

Cancer Conditions: Carcinoma in situ, pays 25% of lump sum benefit. Hospital Indemnity Insurance pays a benefit when you are admitted to the hospital for a covered hospital stay. This coverage can complement your health insurance to help you pay for the costs associated with a hospital stay. It can also provide funds that can be used to help pay the out-ofpocket expenses your medical plan may not cover, such as coinsurance, copays, and deductibles.

Hospital Indemnity Insurance

Group hospital indemnity provides a benefit for hospital admission and can be tailored to include benefits for events like ER visits, hospital confinement, intensive care stays, and ambulance transportation. Benefits are payable directly to employees; you can use the money for co-pays, coinsurance and deductibles - or however else you choose. It’s also affordable! You get lower rates because this is purchased through the workplace and the premiums are paid with convenient payroll deduction.

Whole Life Insurance

13

Whole Life Insurance provides much more than a death benefit – it also offers valuable “living benefits” that you can use during times of need. You can keep your Whole Life coverage after you retire, making it an essential complement to Term Life. What features are available? ➢ Cash value: This policy accumulates cash value. You can borrow funds from this value as needed. ➢ Living benefit option rider: If you are diagnosed with a terminal illness, you can require up to 100% of your policy’s benefit amount and use it for any purpose. ➢ Long term care benefits: Your policy may include a long-term care rider - see your plan administrator. ➢ Coverage for dependents: You may elect individual coverage, or a term life benefits for your spouse and/or dependent child(ren).

2020 Benefits Guide


Flexible Spending Account Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) allow you to be reimbursed for medical and dependent care expenses on a tax-free basis. If you can anticipate your family’s health care and dependent care costs for the next plan year, you may lower your taxable income. Here is how it works. You agree to set aside a portion of your pre-tax salary in the account. The money comes out of your paycheck over the course of the year. The amount you contribute to the FSA is not subject to Social Security (FICA), federal, state, or local income taxes—effectively adjusting your annual taxable salary. Depending on your tax bracket, you may realize significant savings. Log in to your account for real time access to account balance information, pending claim status, reimbursement forms, calculate “what if” scenarios, and more.

How it works Use It or Lose It

Health Care Account

Consider your expenses carefully before you decide how much to contribute to each FSA account. If your eligible expenses for the calendar year turn out to be less than the amount you contributed to your FSA account, federal law requires that the unused balance be forfeited (the “Use it or Lose it” rule). So do not contribute more than you are reasonably certain you will use.

You may pay for certain IRS approved medical care expenses not covered by your insurance plan with pre-tax dollars e.g. co-pays, deductibles, and other out-of-pocket expenses. Under this FSA, the maximum you may contribute each plan year is $1,000.

Over-the-Counter (OTC) Drugs

The Dependent Care FSA lets you use pre-tax dollars toward qualified dependent care. The annual maximum amount you may contribute to the Dependent Care FSA per calendar year is $5,000 or $2,500 if married and filing separate tax returns.

The IRS requires a doctor’s note or prescription for reimbursement of OTC products under the Health Care FSA. This requirement applies to items such as cough medicines and pain relievers. Submit a doctor’s prescription when you submit your claim.

Status Change Federal regulation prohibits you from changing your enrollment or the amount of your election during the plan year. You are only eligible to change your elections during the year if you have a status change. Only benefit changes consistent with the change in status are permitted. Status Changes that may warrant a change in benefit elections are described elsewhere in this benefit guide.

If You Leave the Company Your participation in the Flexible Spending Accounts will end on the date of your termination of employment. This means that you may submit for reimbursement any qualified expenses incurred on or before the date of your termination. You have 90 days after the end of your plan year to file a claim for reimbursement of these expenses. Please refer to your Human Resource Representative for more details.

14

Dependent Care Account

The IRS defines an eligible dependent as: •

A child under the age of 13

A dependent over the age of 13 who is physically or mentally incapable of self-care, claimed as a dependent on your income tax return

Only the portion of expenses which enable you to remain employed are eligible. Educational expenses are not eligible. Note: In order for your FSA contributions to be eligible for reimbursement, you must obtain a tax identification or social security number from your provider which will be reported on your federal income tax return.

Limited Purpose Account The Limited Purpose FSA lets employees enrolled in the HSA use pre-tax dollars toward qualified vision, dental, and preventative care expenses before meeting the insurance deductible. The annual maximum you may contribute to the Limited Purpose FSA per calendar year is $1,000.

2020 Benefits Guide


Annual Notices Right to Rescind Coverage PPACA requires group health plans to provide notice 30 days prior of group health plan termination. The rules prohibit rescissions except in very limited situations such as employees who commit fraud or make intentional misrepresentations. For example, if plan documents require employees enrolling family members to assert that these individuals meet plan eligibility requirements and to immediately notify the employer if their status changes, rescission might be possible for an employee who intentionally misrepresented marital status to obtain coverage for a friend. Prospective terminations of coverage and retroactive terminations for failure to pay premiums or contributions are not rescissions. NCIA Group Health Plan the privacy rules under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) require the Group Health Plan (the “Plan”) to periodically send a reminder to participants about the availability of the Plan’s Privacy Notice and how to obtain a copy of this notice. The Privacy Notice explains participants’ rights and the Plan’s legal duties with respect to protected health information (PHI) and how the plan may use and disclose PHI. Mothers’ and Newborns’ Act Group health plans and health insurance issuers generally may not, under federal law, restrict benefits for any hospital length of stay in connection with childbirth for the mother or newborn child to less than 48 hours following a vaginal delivery, or less than 96 hours following a cesarean section. However, federal law generally does not prohibit the mother’s or newborn’s attending provider, after consulting with the mother, from discharging the mother or her newborn earlier than 48 hours (or 96 hours as applicable). In any case, plans and insurers may not, under federal law, require that a provider obtain authorization from the plan or issuer for prescribing a length of stay not in excess of 48 hours (or 96 hours). Medicare Information Attention Members who are Medicare eligible or who have Medicare eligible dependents—(or those who will soon be eligible). Coordination of benefits between the group plan and Medicare Parts A & B depends on specific criteria and reason for election of Medicare. Please contact the NCIA Human Resources department for more information in regards to these criteria and how the coordination of benefits would be determined.

Medicare Part D Notice Important Notice from the employer about Your Prescription Drug Coverage and Medicare Please read this notice carefully and keep it where you can find it. This notice has information about your current prescription drug coverage and your options under Medicare’s prescription drug coverage. This information can help you decide whether or not you want to join a Medicare drug plan. If you are considering joining, you should compare your current coverage, including which drugs are covered at what cost, with the coverage and costs of the plans offering Medicare prescription drug coverage in your area. Information about where you can get help to make decisions about your prescription drug coverage is at the end of this notice. There are two important things you need to know about your current coverage and Medicare’s prescription drug coverage: Medicare prescription drug coverage became available in 2006 to everyone with Medicare. You can get this coverage if you join a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan or join a Medicare Advantage Plan (like an HMO or PPO) that offers prescription drug coverage. All Medicare drug plans provide at least a standard level of coverage set by Medicare. Some plans may also offer more coverage for a higher monthly premium. The employer has determined that the prescription drug coverage offered by the plan is, on average for all plan participants, expected to pay out as much as standard Medicare prescription drug coverage pays and is therefore considered Creditable Coverage. Because your existing coverage is Creditable Coverage, you can keep this coverage and not pay a higher premium (a penalty) if you later decide to join a Medicare drug plan. When Can You Join A Medicare Drug Plan? You can join a Medicare drug plan when you first become eligible for Medicare and each year from October 15th to December 7th. If you lose your current creditable prescription drug coverage, through no fault of your own, you will also be eligible for a two month Special Enrollment Period (SEP) to join a Medicare drug plan. What Happens To Your Current Coverage If You Decide To Join A Medicare Drug Plan? If you decide to join a Medicare drug plan, your group coverage will not be affected. You and your dependents can keep this coverage if part D is elected and the plan will coordinate with Part D. See pages 7- 9 of the CMS Disclosure of Creditable Coverage To Medicare Part D Eligible Individuals Guidance (available at http://www.cms.hhs.gov/CreditableCoverage/), which outlines the prescription drug plan provisions/options that Medicare eligible individuals may have available to them when they become eligible for Medicare Part D. If you do decide to join a Medicare drug plan and drop your current coverage, be aware that you and your dependents will be able to get this coverage back but you/they may have to wait until the next open enrollment plan. When Will You Pay A Higher Premium (Penalty) To Join A Medicare Drug Plan? You should also know that if you drop or lose your current group coverage and don’t join a Medicare drug plan within 63 continuous days after your current coverage ends, you may pay a higher premium (a penalty) to join a Medicare drug plan later. If you go 63 continuous days or longer without creditable prescription drug coverage, your monthly premium may go up by at least 1% of the Medicare base beneficiary premium per month for every month that you did not have that coverage. For example, if you go nineteen months without creditable coverage, your premium may consistently be at least 19% higher than the Medicare base beneficiary premium. You may have to pay this higher premium (a penalty) as long as you have Medicare prescription drug coverage. In addition, you may have to wait until the following October to join. For More Information about This Notice or Your Current Prescription Drug Coverage. Contact your HR Department for further information. It is always best to discuss your personal situation with a Medicare expert when you are considering your options. NOTE: You’ll get this notice each year. You will also get it before the next period you can join a Medicare drug plan, and if this group coverage changes. You also may request a copy of this notice at any time. More detailed information about Medicare plans that offer prescription drug coverage is in the “Medicare & You” handbook. You’ll get a copy of the handbook in the mail every year from Medicare. You may also be contacted directly by Medicare drug plans. For more information about Medicare prescription drug coverage: Visit www.medicare.gov or call your State Health Insurance Assistance Program (see the inside back cover of your copy of the “Medicare & You” handbook for their telephone number) for personalized help Call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227). TTY users should call 1-877-486-2048. If you have limited income and resources, extra help paying for Medicare prescription drug coverage is available. For information about this extra help, visit Social Security on the web at www.socialsecurity.gov, or call them at 1- 800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778). Remember: Keep this Creditable Coverage notice. If you decide to join one of the Medicare drug plans, you may be required to provide a copy of this notice when you join to show whether or not you have maintained creditable coverage and, therefore, whether or not you are required to pay a higher premium (a penalty).

New Health Insurance Marketplace Coverage Options PART A: General Information What is the Health Insurance Marketplace? The Marketplace is designed to help you find health insurance that meets your needs and fits your budget. The Marketplace offers “onestop shopping” to find and compare private health insurance options. You may also be eligible for a new kind of tax credit that lowers your monthly premium right away. Open enrollment for health insurance coverage through the Marketplace begins in November 2018 for coverage starting as early as January 1, 2020. Can I Save Money on my Health Insurance Premiums in the Marketplace? You may qualify to save money and lower your monthly premium, but only if your employer does not offer coverage, or offers coverage that doesn’t meet certain standards. The savings on your premium that you’re eligible for depends on your household income.

Does Employer Health Coverage Affect Eligibility for Premium Savings through the Marketplace? Yes. If you have an offer of health coverage from your employer that meets certain standards, you will not be eligible for a tax credit through the Marketplace and may wish to enroll in your employer’s health plan. However, you may be eligible for a tax credit that lowers your monthly premium, or a reduction in certain cost-sharing if your employer does not offer coverage to you at all or does not offer coverage that meets certain standards. If the cost of a plan from your employer that would cover you (and not any other members of your family) is more than 9.86% of your household income for the year, or if the coverage your employer provides does not meet the “minimum value” standard set by the Affordable Care Act, you may be eligible for a tax credit. Note: If you purchase a health plan through the Marketplace instead of accepting health coverage offered by your employer, then you may lose the employer contribution (if any) to the employer- offered coverage. Also, this employer contribution – as well as your employee contribution to employer -offered coverage – is often excluded from income for Federal and State income tax purposes. Your payments for coverage through the Marketplace are made on an after-tax basis. How Can I Get More Information? For more information about your coverage offered by your employer, please check your summary plan description or contact your HR department. The Marketplace can help you evaluate your coverage options, including your eligibility for coverage through the Marketplace and its cost. Please visit HealthCare.gov for more information, including an online application for health insurance coverage and contact information for a Health Insurance Marketplace in your area.

Part B: Information about Health Coverage Offered by Your Employer This section contains information about any health coverage offered by your employer. If you decide to complete an application for coverage in the Marketplace, you will be asked to provide this information. This information is numbered to correspond to the Marketplace application.

▪ Eligible members regularly scheduled to work more than 30 hours each week. ▪ Dependent coverage - eligible dependents are spouses and children (biological, adopted and step-children) ▪ Coverage meets minimum value standards, and the cost of this coverage to you is intended to be affordable, based on employee wages. ** Even if your employer intends your coverage to be affordable, you may still be eligible for a premium discount through the Marketplace. The Marketplace will use your household income, along with other factors, to determine whether you may be eligible for a premium discount. If, for example, your wages vary from week to week (perhaps you are an hourly employee or you work on a commission basis), if you are newly employed mid-year, or if you have other income losses, you may still qualify for a premium discount. ***

If you decide to shop for coverage in the Marketplace, HealthCare.gov will guide you through the process. Above is the employer information you’ll enter when you visit HealthCare.gov to find out if you can get a tax credit to lower your monthly premiums.
