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 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.

CHANGES IN STATUS (CIS):

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 Government Programs

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

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. A specialist is any physician other than family practitioner, internist, OB/GYN or pediatrician. 1 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. 2 For ActiveCare 1-HD, certain generic preventive drugs are covered at 100%. Participants do not have to meet the deductible ($2,750 - individual, $5,500 - family) and they pay nothing out of pocket for these drugs. Find the list of drugs at info.caremark.com/trsactivecare. 3 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. 4 If the cost of the drug is less than the minimum, you will pay the cost of the drug. 5 Participants can fill 32-day to 90-day supply through mail order.

CUSTOMLINK YOUR BENEFITS PACKAGE

Medical Supplement

PLAY VIDEO

About this Benefit Medical supplement is designed to help supplement your Employer's major medical plan. This plan provides supplemental coverage to help offset outof-pocket costs that you may experience due to deductibles, co-payments and coinsurance of your medical plan.

33% of total healthcare costs are paid out-of-pocket.

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 16 ETXEBC Benefits Website: www.etxebc.com


Medical Supplement Custom Link is a low‐cost program designed to help you pay for covered out‐of‐pocket expenses you may incur while you are either confined in a hospital or being treated as an out‐ patient for an injury or an illness. The East Texas Employee Benefits Cooperative has chosen a plan design that offers you an optimal offset of expenses due to high deductibles and high out‐of‐pocket maximums.

Basic Plan Benefits Offered The benefit options are:  $1,500 Plan  $2,500 Plan with HSA  $2,500 Plan with no HSA Hospital Confinement Benefit* This benefit is designed to offset the cost you incur as an in‐ patient in the hospital when your primary comprehensive major medical policy applies such expenses to your deductible or coinsurance maximum, up to the $1,500 or $2,500 calendar year maximum per insured person. Out‐Patient Benefit* This benefit offsets the cost you incur for out‐patient treatment when your primary comprehensive major medical policy applies such expenses to your deductible or coinsurance maximum, up to an amount equal to 50% of the Hospital Confinement Benefit limit. This benefit is a “per person per Calendar Year” maximum and is subject to a family calendar year maximum limitation that is equal to three (3) times the individual benefit. Expenses related to physician office visits are not included in this benefit. Covered expenses include:   

Surgery in an Out‐Patient Facility or a Physician’s Office Emergency Room visits Diagnostic testing, Lab & X‐ray at a diagnostic or hospital out‐patient facility or at a Physician’s office if the cost is not included in the global office visit fee and is not part of wellness/preventive care

*For expenses to be eligible under this plan they must be medically necessary for the treatment of an injury or illness. Expenses not covered by your group major medical plan are not covered. Deductible (only applicable for the $2,500 Plan with HSA) In order for your plan to be compatible with an Health Savings Account (HSA), your custom l ink plan has a deductible amount of $1,300 that must be satisfied before any benefits are payable. The deductible applies to inpatient and outpatient charges. When dependent coverage is elected, benefits are payable only after the entire family deductible has been satisfied. The family deductible may be satisfied by one or more insured persons. To be HSA compatible, the minimum per insured and family deductibles required by the IRS must be issued. This is subject to change by the IRS in future years.

How to File a Claim When you enroll in the custom link plan, you will receive a certificate of insurance, an ID card, and a claim form, along with specific instructions on how to file a claim. This form outlines the procedures you should follow and where you should send your claim. Simply stated, you will need to submit a completed claim form, itemized bills (NOT balance due statements), and EOB’s that correspond to the itemized bills. Claims may be filed at any time, but must be filed no longer than 12 months from the date of service in order to be eligible for coverage.

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 ETXEBC Benefits Website: www.etxebc.com


HSA (Health Savings Account) 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? 

 

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. Potential to build more savings through investing. If you maintain a minimum balance of $2,000, your additional funds may be invested in mutual funds yielding tax‐free earnings. A way to accumulate additional retirement savings. After age 65, funds can be withdrawn for any purpose without penalty.

Participant Account Web Access www.nbsbenefits.com A Health Savings Account (HSA) works with a high deductible health plan (HDHP) and lets you set aside a portion of your paycheck ‐ before taxes– into an account to help you pay for medical expenses before you reach your deductible or that you aren’t covered by your plan. It can also help you pay for future medical expenses.

A Health Savings Account (HSA):  

Grows with you. If you maintain a balance of $2,000, your additional funds may be invested in mutual funds yielding tax‐free earnings. Helps you plan for the future. Until you turn 65, withdrawals used for eligible expenses are tax free. After you turn 65, or if you become disabled, your HSA account becomes similar to a regular IRA. Withdrawals you use for noneligible expenses will be taxed at your regular income tax rate but won’t incur additional penalties.

Using Funds

For a list of sample expenses, please refer to the ETXEBC benefit website at www.etxebc.com

Pre-paid Debit Card: You may use the card to pay merchants or service providers that accept Master Card credit cards, so there is no need to pay cash up front and wait for reimbursements.

NBS Contact Information

Should you remain Disabled, your benefits continue according to one of the following schedules, depending on your age at the time you become Disabled and the plan you select.

Definition of Disability

When Coverage Takes Effect

“Disability” or “Disabled” means that, solely because of a covered injury or sickness, you are unable to perform the material duties of your regular occupation and you are unable to earn 80% or more of your indexed earnings from working in your regular occupation. After benefits have been payable for 24 months, you are considered disabled if solely due to your injury or sickness, you are unable to perform the material duties of any occupation for which you are (or may reasonably become) qualified by education, training or experience, and you are unable to earn 80% or more of your indexed earnings. We will require proof of earnings and continued disability.

Your coverage takes effect on the later of the policy’s effective date, the date you become eligible, the date we receive your completed enrollment form, or the date you authorize any necessary payroll deductions. If you’re not actively at work on the date your coverage would otherwise take effect, your coverage will take effect on the date you return to work. If you have to submit evidence of good health, your coverage takes effect on the date we agree, in writing, to cover you.

Covered Earnings “Covered Earnings” means your wages or salary, not including bonuses, commissions, and other extra compensation.

Termination of Disability Benefits Your benefits will terminate when your Disability ceases, when your benefit duration period is exceeded, or on the following events: (1) the date you earn from any occupation more than 80% of your Covered Earnings, or the date you fail to cooperate with us in a rehabilitation plan, or transitional work arrangement, or the administration of the claim.

When Benefits Begin You must be continuously Disabled for your elected benefit waiting period before benefits will be payable for a covered Disability.

Effects of Other Income Benefits This plan is structured to prevent your total benefits and postdisability earnings from equaling or exceeding pre-disability earnings. Therefore, we reduce this plan’s benefits by Other Income Benefits payable to you, your dependents, or a qualified third party on behalf of you or your dependents. Disability benefits will be reduced by amounts received through Social Security disability benefits payable to you, your dependents, or a qualified third party on behalf of you or your dependents. Your disability benefits will not be reduced by any Social Security disability benefits s you are not receiving as long as you cooperate fully in efforts to obtain them and agree to repay any overpayment when and if you do receive them. Disability benefits will also be reduced by amounts received through other government programs, employer’s sabbatical leave, employer’s assault leave plan, employer funded retirement benefits, workers’ compensation, franchise/group insurance, auto nofault, and damages for wage loss. For details, see your outline of coverage, policy certificate, or your employer’s summary plan description. Note: Some of the Other Income Benefits, as defined in the group policy, will not be considered until after disability benefits are payable for 12 months. 29

Earnings While Disabled

Termination of Disability Benefits

During the first 24 months that benefits are payable, benefits will be reduced if benefits plus income from employment exceeds 100% of pre-disability Covered Earnings. After that, benefits will be reduced by 50% of earnings from employment.

Your benefits will terminate when your Disability ceases, when your benefit duration period is exceeded, or on the following events: (1) the date you earn from any occupation more than 80% of your Covered Earnings, or the date you fail to cooperate with us in a rehabilitation plan, or transitional work arrangement, or the administration of the claim.

Benefits are payable during periods of hospital confinement for these conditions for hospitalizations lasting more than 14 consecutive days that occur before the 24-month lifetime outpatient limit is exhausted.

Pre-existing Condition Waiver The Insurance Company will waive the Pre-Existing Condition Limitation for the first month of Disability even if the Employee has a Pre-Existing Condition. The Disability Benefits as shown in the Schedule of Benefits will continue beyond 1 month only if the Pre-Existing Condition Limitation does not apply.

Rehabilitation Requirement To be eligible for Disability benefits under this plan, you may be required to participate in a rehabilitation plan at the sole discretion and expense of the insurance company or company administering benefits under this plan. If you fail to fully cooperate with the rehabilitation plan, no Disability benefits will be paid, and coverage will end. For details, see your Certificate of Insurance.

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.

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.

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:    

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

What Happens If I Don’t Use All of My Funds by The End of the Plan Year (August 31st)? Eligible expenses must be incurred within the plan year +75 day grace period. Contributions are use-it-or- lose-it. Remember to retain all your receipts (including receipts for card swipes). Please contact your benefits admin to determine if your district has the grace period or the $500 Roll-Over option. If your district does not have the roll-over, your plan 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.etxebc.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!


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.

Account Information Participants may call NBS and talk to a representative during our regular business hours, Monday–Friday, 7am to 6pm Mountain Time. Participants can also obtain account information using the Automated Voice Response Unit, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at (801) 838-7324 or toll free (800) 274-0503.

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 or rollover after the Plan year ends for you to submit qualified claims for any unused funds.

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

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

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

How Much Does It Cost? Emergent Plan $9.00 per employee only/family coverage Platinum Plan $39.00 per employee/family coverage
