A Quick Guide to Your Benefits and Enrollment Power Group Holdings, LLC Group #14132 Enroll with Meritain Health today to take your next step towards a healthier, balanced tomorrow. Meritain Health knows how important it is for healthcare consumers like you to really understand how your plan works. In this way, you can make the changes you want in your health and in your life.

Healthcare benefits provide the support you need to reach your healthy balance. Chances are, you try every day to restore a healthy balance to your life, but time gets away from you, or other details come first. Meritain Health is here to help you focus, to support you every step of the way. Think of the benefits and programs as an important resource in the protection of your body, mind and spirit!

Protecting your healthy balance with preventive care. Question: Which is better: Taking an hour or two out of your busy day to have your annual checkup—or missing hidden symptoms and paying the price in sick days, copays and missed events? Answer: Nothing makes more sense in these busy times than preventing illness before it happens. That’s why your plan offers excellent benefits for preventive services. Early detection, proper nutrition, and routine exercise are the key to living a long and healthy life, and will also help to control long-term healthcare costs. Your employer encourages you to take the necessary steps—available to you right now—to ensure early detection and treatment of diseases.

Benefit Highlights Healthcare for you and your family: When sickness or injury throw you off balance. Knowing that you’re in good hands when you’re sick is one of the most comforting feelings there is. You can be assured that your health plan has everything you’ll need to get the right care if something goes wrong.

Balancing healthcare costs: What you pay and what the plan pays. The Benefits Schedule in this packet shows how much you pay for care, and how much the plan pays. It’s a listing of what is and isn’t included in your benefits plan. For more detailed information, see your summary plan description (SPD). After you pay your annual deductible and any up-front copays, the plan begins to pay a percentage of your provider’s charges, for example 80%. The remaining percentage, for example 20%, is your responsibility—your “out-of-pocket” costs. You’re protected from financial hardship by a maximum out-of-pocket amount each year—the most you’ll have to pay before the plan covers costs at 100%. (Copays do not always apply to the out-of-pocket maximum. This varies by plan).

Know your “numbers.” Are you secretly at risk for serious medical conditions? It’s possible to be at risk for developing serious conditions such as heart disease or diabetes, but not know it because you feel fine. That’s why it’s important to have your vitals checked regularly, such as your cholesterol levels, glucose and blood pressure (as advised by your doctor) and know your “numbers.” It helps to be able to understand what the numeric results of your clinical lab tests could mean and discuss any concerns with your doctor. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

Save when you visit network providers. This plan offers a provider network of doctors and other healthcare professionals who have agreed to accept lower amounts than their standard charges, just for members of this plan. These lower amounts are negotiated and predetermined. That means when you see a network provider, your share of costs is based on a lower charge—so your costs are lower, too. Network providers are conveniently located in both urban and rural areas. Lower costs and convenient doctors and clinics are important ways that Meritain Health can support your efforts to stay well and have a healthy lifestyle—or to get care as simply as possible when you’re sick. Remember: If you go outside the network, you may still have benefits, but your share of costs will be higher, and the amount you pay will not be based on a lower rate.

File claims quickly and easily. If you visit a provider in your network, you shouldn’t need to submit a claim for services or pay at the time of your service with the exception of a copay, if applicable. Your provider will submit the claim on your behalf and you will later receive a bill for any out-of-pocket or other balances due. If you have visited an out-of-network provider, you may need to file a claim form to ensure that the service is billed properly. Claim forms can be found online at www.myMERITAIN.com or you can obtain one from your Human Resources Department. Submit the claim by fax or by mail to the fax number or mailing address listed on the claim form.
