Annual Benefit Enrollment

SUMMARY PAGES

Benefit Updates - What’s New: 

Benefit elections will become effective 9/01/2017 (elections requiring evidence of insurability, such as life Insurance, may have a later effective date, if approved). After annual enrollment closes, benefit changes can only be made if you experience a qualifying event and changes must be made within 30 days of event.

Online Benefit Access: www.wtxebc.com You have access to benefit information 24/7 on the employee benefit provided. You can review and print the consolidated enrollment form or benefit guide, download claim forms and website plan summaries, links to carrier websites and provider searches.

Good News! Unum Voluntary Life will allow employees/ spouses to increase existing life insurance coverage all the way up to guarantee issue without evidence of insurability.

NEW CARRIER! The Hartford will be the new disability carrier effective 9/1/17 with significantly lower rates and a 4 week pre-existing benefit.

LOWER RATES! FBS is proud to announce that our current vision carrier Superior Vision has lowered the rates effective 9/1/17 with a 4 year rate guarantee!

   

If you participate in a Healthcare or Dependent Care FSA, you MUST re-elect a new contribution amount every year to continue to participate. Participating employees will receive a FSA MasterCard with your entire annual FSA contribution to spend throughout the entire school year. You can view account balance using the CHECK FSA link on the Benefit website or use the NBS smart phone app, or you call NBS 800 phone number and speak to a representative.

Family Protection –Terminal Illness Plan with Quality of Life Rider from 5 Star provides a specified death benefit to your beneficiary at the time of death. The Terminal Illness Rider pays 30% of the death benefit directly to you in the event you are diagnosed with a terminal condition that will result in a limited life span of less than 12 months. The Quality of Life Rider provides you with financial protection should you be faced with a chronic medical condition that requires continuous care. This rider accelerates a portion of the death benefit on a monthly basis. This plan is affordable, completely portable as it is an individual policy. Like the name says, this is a Family Protection Plan. You can purchase this plan on your spouse, children, and even grandchildren. Persons under the age of 24 will not have the Quality of Life Rider. Guaranteed issued again this year.

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): Marital Status

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 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.

Gain/Loss of Dependents' Eligibility Status

An event that causes an employee's dependent to satisfy or cease to satisfy coverage requirements under an employer's plan may include change in age, student, marital, employment or tax dependent status.

Judgment/Decree/Order

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 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 Government Programs

Gain or loss of Medicare/Medicaid coverage may trigger a permitted election change.

Drug Deductible Short-Term Supply at a Retail Location

Extended-Day Supply at Mail Order or Retail-Plus Pharmacy Location (60- to

90-day supply)****

Specialty Medications Short-Term Supply of a Maintenance Medication at Retail Location (up to a 31-day supply)

What is a maintenance medication? Maintenance drugs are prescriptions commonly used to treat conditions that are considered chronic or long-term. These conditions usually require regular, daily use of medicines. Examples of maintenance drugs are those used to treat high blood pressure, heart disease, asthma and diabetes.

When does the convenience fee apply? For example, if you are covered under TRS-ActiveCare Select, the first time you fill a 31-day supply of a generic maintenance drug at a retail pharmacy you will pay $20, then you will pay $35 each month that you fill a 31-day supply of that generic maintenance drug at a retail pharmacy. A 90-day supply of that same generic maintenance medication would cost $45, and you would save $225 over the year by filling a 90-day supply.

Premium Information for ALEX You will need to enter the applicable amount – YOUR ANNUAL COST – from the table below into ALEX when prompted. To determine this cost, ask your Benefits Administrator for your monthly cost (this is the amount you will owe each month after your employer contributes to your coverage). Then multiply your monthly cost by 12 to get YOUR ANNUAL COST (use this amount for ALEX) Individual

A specialist is any physician other than family practitioner, internist, OB/GYN or pediatrician. *Illustrates benefits when in-network providers are used. For some plans non-network benefits are also available; there is no coverage for non-network benefits under the ActiveCare Select or ActiveCare Select Whole Health Plan; see Enrollment Guide for more information. Non-contracting providers may bill for amounts exceeding the allowable amount for covered services. Participants will be responsible for this balance bill amount, which maybe considerable. **For ActiveCare 1-HD, certain generic preventive drugs are covered at 100%. Participants do not have to meet the deductible ($2,500 - individual, $5,000 - family) and they pay nothing out of pocket for these drugs. The list of drugs is on the TRS-ActiveCare website. ***If a participant obtains a brand-name drug when a generic equivalent is available, they are responsible for the generic copay plus the cost difference between the brand-name drug and the generic drug. 13 ****Participants can fill 32-day to 90-day supply through mail order.

HSA BANK

HSA (Health Savings Account)

YOUR BENEFITS PACKAGE

PLAY VIDEO

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.

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 18 WTXEBC Benefits Website: www.wtxebc.com


HSA (Health Savings Account) HSA Bank has teamed up with your employer to create an affordable health coverage option that helps you save on healthcare expenses. This plan is only available for those who are participating in the Active Care 1-HD medical plan. You may not enroll in the MEDlink® plan if you participate in the HSA. Depending on your district, you may or may not be able to participate in the FSA plan if you participate in HSA. Medicare, Medicaid, and Tricare participants are not eligible to participate in an HSA. You can use your Health Savings Account (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.

What is an HSA? 

How the HSA Plan Works A Health Savings Account (HSA) is an individually-owned, taxadvantaged 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 selfdirected 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-HSAcompatible 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. 20

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 catchup 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 taxfree. 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. HSA Bank does not provide tax advice. Consult your tax professional for tax‐related questions. 4 This list is not comprehensive. It is provided to you with the understanding that HSA Bank is not engaged in rendering tax advice. The information provided is not intended to be used to avoid Federal tax penalties. For more detailed information, please refer to IRS Publication 502 titled, “Medical and Dental Expenses”. Publications can be ordered directly from the IRS by calling 1-800-TAXFORM. If tax advice is required, you should seek the services of a professional. 5 Insurance premiums only qualify as an IRS-qualified medical expense: while continuing coverage under COBRA; for qualified long-term care coverage; coverage while receiving unemployment compensation; for any healthcare coverage for those over age 65 including Medicare (except Medicare supplemental coverage). 21

Just over 1 in 4 of today's 20 year -olds will become disabled before they retire.

34.6 months is the duration of the average disability claim.

This is a general overview of your plan benefits. If the terms of this outline differ from your policy, the policy will govern.

Long Term Disability Disability is designed to provide a monthly income to an individual that is disabled due to an accident or illness.

For specific details on how benefits are paid, refer to carrier brochure. Your disability coverage amount and premium can be accessed during your enrollment.

Pre-existing Conditions Your policy limits the benefits you can receive for a disability caused by a pre-existing condition. In general, if you were diagnosed or received care for a disabling condition within the 3 consecutive months just prior to the effective date of this policy, your benefit payment will be limited, unless: You have not received treatment for the disabling condition within 3 months, while insured under this policy, before the disability begins, or You have been insured under this policy for 12 months before your disability begins. You may also be covered if you have already satisfied the pre-existing condition requirement of your previous insurer. If your disability is a result of a pre-existing condition we will pay benefits for a maximum of 4 weeks.

Benefit Reductions Your benefit payments may be reduced by other income you receive or are eligible to receive due to your disability, such as:  Social Security Disability Insurance (please see wtxebc.com for exceptions)  Workers' Compensation  Other employer-based Insurance coverage you may have  Unemployment benefits  Settlements or judgments for income loss  Retirement benefits that your employer fully or partially pays for (such as a pension plan.)

Your benefit payments will not be reduced by certain kinds of other income, such as:  Retirement benefits if you were already receiving them before you became disabled  The portion of your Long -Term Disability payment that you place in an IRS-approved account to fund your future retirement  Your personal savings, investment, IRAs or Keoghs  Profit-sharing  Most personal disability policies  Social Security increases Coverage goes into effect subject to the terms and conditions of the policy.

About this Benefit Individual life is a policy that provides a specified death benefit to your beneficiary at the time of death.

Term Life with Terminal Illness and Quality of Life Rider The Family Protection Plan: Individual 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—Policies can be purchased for children and grandchildren ages 14 days through 23 years. 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.

MASA YOUR BENEFITS PACKAGE

Medical Transport

About this Benefit Medical Transport covers emergency transportation to and from appropriate medical facilities by covering the out-of-pocket costs that are not covered by insurance. It includes emergency transportation via ground ambulance, air ambulance and helicopter.

A ground ambulance can cost up to

$2,400

and a helicopter transportation fee can cost

over $30,000

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 60 WTXEBC Benefits Website: www.wtxebc.com


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.

MASA MTS for Employees Ensures...      

NO health questions NO age limits for employee/spouse NO claim forms NO deductibles NO provider network limitations NO dollar limits on emergency transport costs

What is Covered?  

Emergency Helicopter Transport Emergency Ground Ambulance Transport

How Much Does It Cost? MASA Emergent rates are $9 a month, per employee/family coverage.

Emergent Card Example:

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

Funds allocated to a healthcare FSA must be used during the plan year or are forfeited unless your plan contains a $500 rollover or grace period provision.

Unlimited FSA (Non HSA Compatible) The funds in the unlimited healthcare FSA can be used to pay for eligible medical expenses like deductibles, co-payments, orthodontics, glasses and contacts.

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.

Health Care Expense Account Example Expenses:          

Acupuncture Body scans Breast pumps Chiropractor Co-payments Deductible Diabetes Maintenance Eye Exam & Glasses Fertility treatment First aid

        

Hearing aids & batteries Lab fees Laser Surgery Orthodontia Expenses Physical exams Pregnancy tests Prescription drugs Vaccinations Vaporizers or humidifiers

Dependent Care Expense Account Example Expenses:    

Before and After School and/or Extended Day Programs The actual care of the dependent in your home. Preschool tuition. The base costs for day camps or similar programs used as care for a qualifying individual.

What Can I Use My Flexible Spending Account On? For a full list of eligible expenses, please refer to www.wtxebc.com

What Happens If I Don’t Use All of My Funds by The End of the Plan Year (August 31st)? Participants must confirm with their Benefits Administrator when the deadline is to submit final expenses. Remember to retain all your receipts (including receipts for card swipes). Contributions are use-it-or- lose-it.

How Do I File A Claim? In most situations, you will be able to swipe your card however, in the event you lose your card or are waiting to receive one, you can visit www.wtxebc.com and complete the “Claim Form” to send to NBS or use the web or phone app to file online.

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! http://docs.mgmbenefits.com/External.aspx? DocID=269028&InBrowser=1


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.

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.

Get Your Money 1. 2.
