Annual Benefit Enrollment

SUMMARY PAGES

Benefit Updates - What’s New: 

NEW! The life insurance carrier is changing to UNUM effective 9-1-16. Eligible employees of the district are covered at one times their annual salary, which is paid for by the district. In addition, employees may purchase additional term life insurance on themselves up to $200,000, $50,000 on their spouse and $10,000 on their children, to age 26, on a guaranteed issue basis (meaning no health questions asked) during this open enrollment. Employees can also purchase up to $500,000, not to exceed 7 times their annual salary, of AD&D life Insurance coverage that is separate from their employer-paid life.

NEW! The disability carrier is changing to One America effective 9-1-16 and now will have a sick leave offset requirement. Disability insurance protects one of your most valuable assets; your paycheck. This insurance will replace a portion of your income in the event that you become physically unable to work due to sickness or injury for an extended period of time. Eligible employees will receive long term disability paid for by the district. Employees may also purchase short term disability on a guaranteed issue basis (meaning no health questions asked) during this open enrollment. Employees may purchase up to 66 2/3 of their gross annual income and there are two plans to choose from; a 14 day or a new 30 day elimination period that is waived with hospital confinement. Telephonic claims submission will be an option. A value added benefit to this plan is an Employee Assistance Program.

6

UPDATE! Dental: There will be a slight rate increase effective 9-1-16. Dental insurance is a coverage that helps defray the costs of dental care. It insures against the expense of routine care, treatment and dental disease. The coverage will continue to be with Cigna and there are two plan options to choose from; The high plan option pays up to $1000.00 in benefits each year, and the low plan option covers up to $500.00 in benefits each year. There is a $50 deductible that starts over every September 1st. Both plans are PPO’s, so you will receive better benefits if you choose a dentist who is in the Cigna Radius Network. Orthodontia is covered on the high plan option only, up to $1000.00 lifetime, for children under the age of 18, maximum age 26.

SUMMARY PAGES

Section 125 Cafeteria Plan Guidelines A Cafeteria plan enables you to save money by using pre-tax dollars to pay for eligible group insurance premiums sponsored and offered by your employer. Enrollment is automatic unless you decline this benefit. Elections made during annual enrollment will become effective on the plan effective date and will remain in effect during the entire plan year.

CHANGES IN STATUS (CIS):

Changes in benefit elections can occur only if you experience a qualifying event. You must present proof of a qualifying event to your Benefit Office within 30 days of your qualifying event and meet with your Benefit/HR Office to complete and sign the necessary paperwork in order to make a benefit election change. Benefit changes must be consistent with the qualifying event.

QUALIFYING EVENTS

Marital Status

A change in marital status includes marriage, death of a spouse, divorce or annulment (legal separation is not recognized in all states).

Change in Number of Tax Dependents

A change in number of dependents includes the following: birth, adoption and placement for adoption. You can add existing dependents not previously enrolled whenever a dependent gains eligibility as a result of a valid change in status event.

Change in Status of Employment Affecting Coverage Eligibility

Change in employment status of the employee, or a spouse or dependent of the employee, that affects the individual's eligibility under an employer's plan includes commencement or termination of employment.

An event that causes an employee's dependent to satisfy or cease to satisfy coverage requirements Gain/Loss of Dependents' under an employer's plan may include change in age, student, marital, employment or tax dependent Eligibility Status status. If a judgment, decree, or order from a divorce, annulment or change in legal custody requires that you provide accident or health coverage for your dependent child (including a foster child who is your dependent), you may change your election to provide coverage for the dependent child. If the order Judgment/Decree/Order requires that another individual (including your spouse and former spouse) covers the dependent child and provides coverage under that individual's plan, you may change your election to revoke coverage only for that dependent child and only if the other individual actually provides the coverage. Eligibility for Gain or loss of Medicare/Medicaid coverage may trigger a permitted election change. Government Programs

#1

cause of accidental deaths in the US, followed by poisoning, falls, drowning, and choking.

This is a general overview of your plan benefits. If the terms of this outline differ from your policy, the policy will govern. Additional plan details on covered expenses, limitations and exclusions are included in the summary plan description located on the Texarkana ISD Benefits Website: www.mybenefitshub.com/texarkanaisd 38

Who pays for the coverage?

Buy-Up Plan: All Part-Time or Full-Time actively at work employees working a minimum of 20 hours per week but less than 30 hours each week. Base Plan: All Full-Time actively at work employees working at least 30 hours each week. Buy-Up Plan: Paid by Employee. Dependent Coverage is paid by Employee. Base Plan: Paid by the District.

What are the Spouse and Child Life/AD&D coverage amounts?

Can I be denied coverage?

If you want coverage over the amount you are guaranteed, you will need to provide answers to health questions. In addition, if you and your eligible dependents do not enroll during this enrollment period, you will have to wait for a future annual enrollment period to apply — and then you will need to answer health questions for the entire amount of coverage you apply for. New employees: To apply for coverage, complete your enrollment within 31 days of your eligibility period. If you apply for coverage after 31 days, or if you choose coverage over the amount you are guaranteed, you will need to complete a medical questionnaire which you can get from your plan administrator. You may also be required to take certain medical tests at Unum’s expense. Your coverage is effective 9/1/2016 or the date your application is approved by underwriting, if health questions were required.

When is coverage effective?

Insurance coverage will be delayed if you are not in active employment because of an injury, sickness, temporary layoff, or leave of absence on the date that insurance would otherwise become effective. For your dependent spouse and children, insurance coverage will be delayed if that dependent is totally disabled on the date that insurance would otherwise be effective. Totally disabled means that as a result of an injury, a sickness, or disorder your dependent spouse and children: are confined in a hospital or similar institution; are confined at home under the care of a physician for a sickness or injury; or your spouse has a life-threatening condition. Exception: Infants are insured from live birth. 39


Life and AD&D Re-enrollment

Do my life insurance benefits decrease with age?

Is the coverage portable (can I keep it if I leave my employer)? Are there any life insurance exclusions or limitations? Will my premiums be waived if I’m disabled?

What does my AD&D insurance pay for?

If you are enrolled in the plan and wish to increase your life insurance coverage, you may apply for 1 benefit level increase ($10,000) without answering medical questions.

FSA Frequently Asked Questions What is a Flexible Spending Account? A Flexible Spending Account allows you to save money by paying out-of-pocket health and/or dependent care related expenses with pre-tax dollars. Your contributions are deducted from your pay before taxes are withheld and your account is up fronted with an annual amount. Because you are taxed on a lower amount of pay, you pay less in taxes and you have more to spend.

How does a Flexible Spending Account Benefit Me? A Cafeteria plan enables you to save money on group insurance, health-related expenses, and dependent-care expenses. You may save as much as 35 percent on the cost of each benefit option! Eligible expenses must be incurred within the plan year and contributions are use-it-or- lose-it. Remember to retain all your receipts.

How the FSA Plan Works You designate an annual election of pre-tax dollars to be deposited into your health and dependent-care spending accounts. Your total election is divided by the number of pay periods in the Plan year and deducted equally from each paycheck before taxes are calculated. By the end of the Plan year, your total election will be fully deposited. However, you may make a claim for eligible health FSA expenses as soon as they are incurred during the Plan year. Eligible claims will be paid up to your total annual election even if you have not yet contributed that amount to your account.

Get Your Money 1. 2. 3. 4.

Complete and sign a claim form (available on our website) or an online claim. Attach documentation; such as an itemized bill or an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) statement from a health insurance provider. Fax or mail signed form and documentation to NBS. Receive your non-taxable reimbursement after your claim is processed either by check or direct deposit.

NBS Flexcard—FSA Pre-paid Benefit Card Your employer may sponsor the use of the NBS Flexcard, making access to your flex dollars easier than ever. You may use the card to pay merchants or service providers that accept credit cards, so there is no need to pay cash up front then wait for reimbursement.

Enrollment Considerations After the enrollment period ends, you may increase, decrease, or stop your contribution only when you experience a qualifying “change of status” (marriage status, employment change, dependent change). Be conservative in the total amount you elect to avoid forfeiting money that may be left in your account at the end of the year. Your employer may allow a short grace period after the Plan year ends for you to submit qualified claims for any unused funds.
