Annual Benefit Enrollment

SUMMARY PAGES

Annual Enrollment

Q&A

During your annual enrollment period, you have the opportunity to review, change or continue benefit elections each year. Changes are not permitted during the plan year (outside of annual enrollment) unless a Section 125 qualifying event occurs.

Who do I contact with Questions? For supplemental benefit questions, you can contact your Benefits/HR department or you can call Financial Benefit Services at 866-914-5202 for assistance.

Changes, additions or drops may be made only during the annual enrollment period without a qualifying event.

 Employees must review their personal information and verify that dependents they wish to provide coverage for are included in the dependent profile. Additionally, you must notify your employer of any discrepancy in personal and/or benefit information.

Employees must confirm on each benefit screen (medical, dental, vision, etc.) that each dependent to be covered is selected in order to be included in the coverage for that particular benefit.

New Hire Enrollment All new hire enrollment elections must be completed in the online enrollment system within the first 31 days of benefit eligibility employment. Failure to complete elections during this timeframe will result in the forfeiture of coverage.

Where can I find forms? For benefit summaries and claim forms, go to the MRIC benefit website: www.txescbenefits.com. Click on your service center, then click the benefit plan you need information on (i.e., Dental) and you can find the forms you need under the Benefits and Forms section. How can I find a Network Provider? For benefit summaries and claim forms, go to the MRIC benefit website: www.txescbenefits.com. Click on your service center, then click on the benefit plan you need information on (i.e., Dental) and you can find provider search links under the Quick Links section. When will I receive ID cards? If the insurance carrier provides ID cards, you can expect to receive those 3-4 weeks after your effective date. For most dental and vision plans, you can login to the carrier website and print a temporary ID card or simply give your provider the insurance company’s phone number and they can call and verify your coverage if you do not have an ID card at that time. If you do not receive your ID card, you can call the carrier’s customer service number to request another card. If the insurance carrier provides ID cards, but there are no changes to the plan, you typically will not receive a new ID card each 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.

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 31 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.

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.

MEDlink® IV Enhanced

Limited Benefit Group Medical Expense Supplemental Insurance

Important Policy Provisions Eligibility

You are eligible to be covered under this Policy/Certificate if you are Actively At Work, qualify for coverage as defined in the Master Application, are covered under your Employer’s Medical Plan and are under age 70 (if you work for an employer employing less than 20 employees). Your Eligible Dependents, as defined in the Policy/Certificate, are eligible for coverage if they are covered under the Employer’s Medical Plan. You must apply for insurance during the Initial Enrollment period or on the date the person first becomes eligible for coverage. If you do not apply during the Initial Enrollment period or on the date you become eligible for coverage, you may be subject to additional underwriting by APL. Evidence of coverage under your Employer’s Medical Plan is required.

When Coverage Begins

Coverage will begin on the requested Certificate Effective Date or the Certificate Effective Date assigned by us, upon approval of your application, if our underwriting rules are met, the premium has been paid and all persons to be insured are covered under your Employer’s Medical Plan and you are Actively At Work on the Certificate Effective Date. If you are not Actively At Work on the Certificate Effective Date due to disability, Injury, Sickness, temporary layoff, leave of absence or Family and Medical Leave of Absence, coverage begins on the date you return to Actively At Work. No benefits will be payable for expenses incurred during any period the Covered Person does not have coverage under your Employer’s Medical Plan, except as provided in the Absence of the Insured’s Employer’s Medical Plan provision, described in the Policy.

Limitations & Exclusions A hospital is not an institution, or part thereof, used as: a place for rehabilitation, a place for rest or for the aged, a nursing or convalescent home, a long term nursing unit or geriatrics ward, or an extended care facility for the care of convalescent, rehabilitative or ambulatory patients.

Pre-Existing Condition Limitation

No benefits are payable during the Pre-Existing Condition Exclusion Period following the Covered Person’s Effective Date for any loss resulting from a Pre-Existing Condition. The Pre-Existing Condition Limitation will apply only if the Covered Person is subject to a Pre-Existing Condition Limitation under the Employer’s Medical Plan. Therefore, any Pre-Existing Condition Limitation applied to the Major Medical plan would, in effect, limit coverage under this plan.

Exclusions

No benefits are payable for any loss resulting from or caused, whether directly or indirectly, by: s war or any act of war, whether declared or undeclared, or active service in the armed forces; (This exclusion includes Accident sustained or Sickness contracted while in the service of any military, naval or air force of any country engaged in war.

APSB-22354(TX) MGM/FBS MRIC Region 11 ESC

s committing, or attempting to commit, an illegal act that is defined as a felony; (Felony is as defined by the law of the jurisdiction in which the act takes place.) s participation in a contest of speed in power driven vehicles, parachuting or hang gliding; s air travel, except: s as a fare-paying passenger on a commercial airline on a regularly scheduled route; or s as a passenger for transportation only and not as a pilot or crew member; s being intoxicated or under the influence of any narcotic unless administered by a Physician or taken according to the Physician’s instructions; (Intoxication means that which is determined and defined by the laws and jurisdiction of the geographical area in which the event that caused the loss occurred.) s alcoholism or drug addiction; s sex changes; s experimental treatment, drugs or surgery; s Accident or Sickness arising out of, and in the course of, any occupation for compensation, wage or profit; (This does not apply to those sole proprietors or partners not covered by Workers’ Compensation.) s dental or vision services, including treatment, surgery, extractions or x-rays, unless: s resulting from an Accident occurring while the Covered Person’s coverage is in force and if performed within 12 months of the date of such Accident; or s due to congenital disease or anomaly of a covered newborn child. s routine examinations, such as health exams, periodic check-ups or routine physicals, except when part of Inpatient routine newborn care; s elective cosmetic surgery; s drugs (prescription and non-prescription for use outside of a covered facility as defined in this Policy/Certificate or any attached rider); s sterilization and reversal of sterilization; s an expense that does not meet the definition of Covered Charges; s an expense or service that exceeds any of the Maximum Benefits, as shown in the Schedule of Benefits; or s any expense for which benefits are not payable under your Other Medical Plan.

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

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 Nearly 85% of Americans say most people need life insurance; unfortunately only 62% have coverage and a staggering 33% say they don’t have enough life insurance, including one-fourth who already have life insurance coverage.** Nobody wants to be a statistic - especially during a period of grief. That’s why 5Star Life Insurance Company developed its FPP policy - to ensure you and your loved ones are covered during a period of loss. 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.

This Open Enrollment only, all employees are eligible for full Guarantee Issue! All future enrollments, new hire employees may be eligible for a Guarantee Issue of $100,000 and a Guarantee Issue of $30,000 for spouse coverage and $20,000 for dependents. Existing employees are eligible to apply for up to $150,000 in coverage for themselves, their spouse and $20,000 for dependent children under age 24.

DID YOU KNOW? Protecting your financial well being is easier than you think. It’s like trading in a daily latte for peace of mind.

$4.30 per day to start your morning with a $1.75

gourmet coffee OR per day to enrich your employee benefits package

It’s less expensive than you think.

Family Protection - Individual policies can be purchased on the employee, their spouse, children and grandchildren (ages 15 days to age 24). Quality of Life Benefit - Following a diagnosis of either a chronic illness or cognitive impairment, this rider accelerates a portion of the death benefit on a monthly basis – 4%; up to 75% of your benefit, and payable directly to you on a tax favored basis for the following:  Permanent inability to perform at least two of the six Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) without substantial assistance; or  Permanent severe cognitive impairment, such as dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of senility, requiring substantial supervision. 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 twoyear contestability period and/or under investigation. This product also contains no war or terrorism exclusions.

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.

EMERGENT $9/mo. (30% off)

PLATINUM $39/mo. (35% off)

Emergency Air Medical Transport

MASA provides medical emergency transportation solutions AND cover your out of pocket medical transport cost when your insurance falls short.

Emergency Ground Ambulance Transport

Non-Emergent Air Transport

About this Benefit A Cafeteria Plan is designed to take advantage of Section 125 of the Internal Revenue Code. It allows you to pay certain qualified expenses on a pre-tax basis, thereby reducing your taxable income. You can set aside a pre-established amount of money per plan year in a Healthcare Flexible Spending Account (FSA). 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

        

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