High deductible health plan hdhp w health savings account hsa

High Deductible Health Plan(HDHP) w/Health Savings Account(HSA)

The Health Savings Account (HSA) Plan partners medical coverage with the ability to fund a Health Savings Account with pretax dollars to use for current or future medical expenses.

* Bank account set-up required to receive company contribution.


Health savings accounts hsa

Health Savings Accounts (HSA)

  • Created by the Medicare bill signed by President Bush on December 8, 2003 and are designed to help individuals pay for their financial liability on medical claims with pre-tax dollars or save for future qualified medical expenses. The tax advantages are great – money goes in tax free, earns interest tax free and can be spent tax free for qualified medical expenses.

  • To qualify for the tax advantages, you must be enrolled in a Qualified High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). The Treasury Department and IRS regulate the contribution limits, minimum deductibles, maximum out-of-pocket limits and age 55 + catch up amounts. These amounts are subject to change each year.

  • The contributions, which can be employer and/or employee funded, are portable and remain with the employee even if they leave the College.

  • You are not eligible to participate in an HSA:

    • If you or a family member are covered by another non-qualified high deductible health plan


How does an hsa plan work with the pharmacy plan

How does an HSA Plan work with the Pharmacy Plan?

  • In 2009, the HSA Pharmacy Plan is offered through Innoviant – transition of current prescriptions will be as seamless as possible

  • You pay 100% of prescription cost until your HSA deductible is met

    • You can use your Health Savings Account debit card or checkbook to pay for prescriptions

  • Once you’ve met your HSA deductible through the combination of your medical and pharmacy expenses, the basics of the pharmacy plan work the same as the pharmacy plan described earlier

    • You pay a percentage of the cost of prescriptions with minimum and maximum caps on the amount that comes out-of-pocket

Health savings accounts hsas recap of how they work

Health Savings Accounts (HSAs)Recap of how they work…

  • HSAs are simply personalized accounts that each employee has access to when they sign up for their Palmer College high deductible health plan

  • How are they funded?Participating employees contribute pre-tax payroll deductions to the account along with employer contributions.

  • How can I use the funds in my HSA? Funds can be used to pay for medical out of pocket expenses including dental, vision and pharmacy.

  • What happens when my HSA funds are used up? If the plan year deductible is not met, you may have additional out of pocket expenses until it is satisfied.


Health savings accounts hsas recap of how they work1

Health Savings Accounts (HSAs)Recap of how they work…

  • What if I have dollars left over in my HSA at the end of the year?Unused dollars at the end of a plan year ARE NOTforfeited and can be rolled over from year to year – accumulating a balance for when you need the benefit dollars.

  • Do I have to submit a claim to use my HSA dollars? Members should always show their health plan Member ID card and have their provider submit a claim first – so they can get the best discounts and so the true out of pocket amount is calculated. THEN an easy to use debit card or check book can be used for most payments on the remaining patient responsibility.

  • Where can I find out more about how it works? Our plan administrator is UMR and they offer a variety of resources and tools either on their website: www.umr.com or through customer care representatives @ 1.866.868.7241
