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

Discount Features Non-Covered Eyewear Discount: Members may also receive a discount of 20% from a participating provider’s usual and customary fees for eyewear purchases which exceed the benefit coverage (except disposable contact lenses, for which no discount applies). This includes eyeglass frames which exceed the selected benefit coverage, specialty lenses (i.e. progressives) and lens “extras” such as tints and coatings. Eyewear purchased from a Walmart Vision Center does not qualify for this additional discount because of Walmart’s “Always Low Prices” policy. The Plan discount features are not insurance. All allowances are retail; the member is responsible for paying the provider directly for all non-covered items and/or any amount over the allowances, minus available discounts. These are not covered by the plan. Discounts are subject to change without notice. Disclaimer: All final determinations of benefits, administrative duties, and definitions are governed by the Certificate of Insurance for your vision plan.

Individual Life

YOUR BENEFITS PACKAGE

PLAY VIDEO

About this Benefit Individual life is a policy that provides a specified death benefit to your beneficiary at the time of death. The advantage of having an individual life insurance plan as opposed to a group supplemental term life plan is that this plan is guaranteed renewable, portable and typically premiums remain the same over the life of the policy.

Experts recommend at least

x 10 your gross annual income in coverage when purchasing life insurance.

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 40 TIPSEBC Benefits Website: www.tipsebc.com


Term Life with Terminal Illness and Quality of Life Rider The Family Protection Plan: Term Life Insurance with Terminal Illness Coverage to Age 100 With the Family Protection Plan (FPP), you can provide financial stability for your loved ones should something happen to you. You have peace of mind that you are covered up to age 100.* No matter what the future brings, you and your family will be protected. If faced with a chronic medical condition that required continuous care, would you be able to protect yourself? Traditionally, expenses associated with treatment and care necessitated by a chronic injury or illness have accounted for 86% of all health care spending and can place strain on your assets when you need them most. To provide protection during this time of need, 5Star Life Insurance Company (5Star Life) is pleased to offer the Quality of Life Rider, which is included with your FPP life insurance coverage. This rider accelerates a portion of the death benefit on a monthly basis - 4% - each month as scheduled by your employer at the group level, and payable directly to you on a tax favored basis. You can receive up to 75% of the current face amount of the life benefit, following a diagnosis of either a chronic illness or cognitive impairment that requires substantial assistance. Benefits are paid for the following:  Permanent inability to perform at least two of the six Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) without substantial assistance, or  A permanent severe cognitive impairment, such as dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of senility requiring substantial supervision.

Affordability—With several options to choose from, select the coverage that best meets the needs of your family. Terminal Illness—This plan pays the insured 30% (25% in Connecticut and Michigan) of the policy coverage amount in a lump sum upon the occurrence of a terminal condition that will result in a limited life span of less than 12 months. Portability—You and your family continue coverage with no loss of benefits or increase in cost should you terminate employment after the first premium is paid. If this happens, we can simply bill you directly. Coverage can never be cancelled by the insurance company or your employer unless you stop paying premiums. Family Protection—Individual policies can be purchased on the employee, their spouse, children and grandchildren. Children & Grandchildren Plan— Individual life policies can be purchased for children and grandchildren ages newborn through 23. They are not eligible for the Quality of Life Rider. Convenience—Premiums are taken care of simply and easily through payroll deductions. Protection You Can Count On—Within 24 hours after receiving notice of an insured’s death, an emergency death benefit of the lesser of 50% of the coverage amount, or $10,000, will be mailed to the insured’s beneficiary, unless the death is within the two-year contestability period and/or under investigation. This product also contains no war or terrorism exclusions.

For example, in case of chronic illness, you would receive $3,586 each month up to $67,241.25. The remainder death benefit of $22,413.75 would be made payable to your beneficiary. This example is for illustration purposes only. You will need to review the chart for your exact benefit.

YOUR BENEFITS PACKAGE

About this Benefit A Health Savings Account is a tax-advantaged medical savings account available to employees who are enrolled in a high-deductible health plan. The funds contributed to the account are not subject to federal income tax at the time of deposit. Unlike a flexible spending account (FSA), funds roll over and accumulate year to year if not spent.

The interest earned in an HSA is tax free.

Money withdrawn for medical spending never falls under taxable income.

An IRS-qualified medical expense is defined as an expense that pays for healthcare services, equipment, or medications. Funds used to pay for IRS-qualified medical expenses are always tax-free.

What is an HSA? 

 

A tax-advantaged savings account that you use to pay for eligible medical expenses as well as deductible, co-insurance, prescriptions, vision and dental care. Allows you to save while reducing your taxable income. Unused funds that will roll over year to year. There’s no “use it or lose it” penalty. A way to accumulate additional retirement savings. After age 65, funds can be withdrawn for any purpose without penalty.

Debit Card  You may use the card to pay merchants or service providers that accept VISA credit cards, so there is no need to pay cash up front and wait for reimbursements.  You can make a withdrawal at any time. Reimbursements for qualified medical expenses are tax free. If you are disabled or reach age 65, you can receive non-medical distributions without penalty, but you must report the distributions as taxable income.

How the HSA Plan Works A Health Savings Account (HSA) is an individually-owned, tax-advantaged account that you can use to pay for current or future IRS-qualified medical expenses. With an HSA, you’ll have the potential to build more savings for healthcare expenses or additional retirement savings through self-directed investment options1.

How an HSA works: 

 

You can contribute to your HSA via payroll deduction, online banking transfer, or by sending a personal check to HSA Bank. Your employer or third parties, such as a spouse or parent, may contribute to your account as well. You can pay for qualified medical expenses with your HSA Bank Debit Card directly to your medical provider or pay out-of-pocket. You can either choose to reimburse yourself or keep the funds in your HSA to grow your savings. Unused funds will roll over year to year. After age 65, funds can be withdrawn for any purpose without penalty (subject to ordinary income taxes). Check balances and account information via HSA Bank’s Internet Banking 24/7.

Are you eligible for an HSA? If you have a qualified High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) either through your employer, through your spouse, or one you’ve purchased on your own - chances are you can open an HSA. Additionally:  You cannot be covered by any other non-HSA-compatible health plan, including Medicare Parts A and B.  You cannot be covered by TriCare.  You cannot have accessed your VA medical benefits in the past 90 days (to contribute to an HSA).  You cannot be claimed as a dependent on another person’s tax return (unless it’s your spouse).  You must be covered by the qualified HDHP on the first day of the month. When you open an account, HSA Bank will request certain information to verify your identity and to process your application.

What are the annual IRS contribution limits? Contributions made by all parties to an HSA cannot exceed the annual HSA limit set by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Anyone can contribute to your HSA, but only the accountholder and employer can receive tax deductions on those contributions. Combined annual contributions for the accountholder, employer, and third parties (i.e., parent, spouse, or anyone else) must not exceed these limits2. 52

2017 Annual HSA Contribution Limits Individual = $3,400 Family = $6,750

Catch-up Contributions Accountholders who meet these qualifications are eligible to make an HSA catch-up contribution of $1,000: Health Savings accountholder; age 55 or older (regardless of when in the year an accountholder turns 55); not enrolled in Medicare (if an accountholder enrolls in Medicare mid-year, catch-up contributions should be prorated). Authorized signers who are 55 or older must have their own HSA in order to make the catch-up contribution. According to IRS guidelines, each year you have until the tax filing deadline to contribute to your HSA (typically April 15 of the following year). Online contributions must be submitted by 2:00 p.m., Central Time, the business day before the tax filing deadline. Wire contributions must be received by noon, Central Time, on the tax filing deadline, and contribution forms with checks must be received by the tax filing deadline.

How can you benefit from tax savings? An HSA provides triple tax savings3. Here’s how:  Contributions to your HSA can be made with pre-tax dollars and any after-tax contributions that you make to your HSA are tax deductible.  HSA funds earn interest and investment earnings are tax free.  When used for IRS-qualified medical expenses, distributions are free from tax.

IRS-Qualified Medical Expenses You can use your HSA to pay for a wide range of IRS-qualified medical expenses for yourself, your spouse, or tax dependents. An IRS-qualified medical expense is defined as an expense that pays for healthcare services, equipment, or medications. Funds used to pay for IRS-qualified medical expenses are always tax-free. HSA funds can be used to reimburse yourself for past medical expenses if the expense was incurred after your HSA was established. While you do not need to submit any receipts to HSA Bank, you must save your bills and receipts for tax purposes.

1 Investment accounts are not FDIC insured, may lose value and are not a deposit or other obligation of, or guarantee by the bank. Investment losses which are replaced are subject to the annual contribution limits of the HSA. 2 HSA funds contributed in excess of these limits are subject to penalty and tax unless the excess and earnings are withdrawn prior to the due date, including any extensions for filing Federal Tax returns. Accountholders should consult with a qualified tax advisor in connection with excess contribution removal. The Internal Revenue Service requires HSA Bank to report withdrawals that are considered refunds of excess contributions. In order for the withdrawal to be accurately reported, accountholders may not withdraw the excess directly. Instead, an excess contribution refund must be requested from HSA Bank and an Excess Contribution Removal Form completed. 3 Federal Tax savings are available no matter where you live and HSAs are taxable in AL, CA, and NJ.

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 To Receive Your Dependent Care Reimbursement Faster. A Direct Deposit form is available on the Benefits Website which will help you get reimbursed quicker!


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.

Medical Transport MASA provides medical emergency transportation solutions and covers your out of pocket medical transport cost when your insurance falls short. MASA does not use a network, which means you are covered anywhere.

THE TRUTH... Americans today suffer from a false sense of security that their medical coverage will pay for all costs associated with emergency or critical care transport. The reality is that a majority of Americans are only partially covered for these high costs. Most healthcare policies will only pay based off of the “Usual and Customary Charges” while Medicare pays based off a set fee schedule, both leaving you with the remainder of the bill. You face the possibility that your medical coverage will deny the claim leaving you responsible for the ENTIRE bill. We provide medical emergency transportation solutions AND cover your out of pocket medical transport cost when your insurance falls short. “All I had to do was send the bill which was never paid by Medicare and TriCare for Life --- and the rest is history. When MASA received that bill, it was paid and all amounts owed satisfied.” --- MASA Member, 2015
