2011 benefits if you remember only five things
2011 Benefits—If You Remember Only Five Things

Almost everybody will spend less through the Health & Savings Plan (formerly HDHP) than under any other option. You’ll receive an additional contribution if you choose it in 2011.

The Health Savings Account—funded by Tenet and you—can be used now, next year, OR for retiree medical coverage.

Use Tenet facilities whenever available!

Nothing is more important than your health and wellness. Use the preventive benefits!

Tenet spends FOUR times the amount you do to provide YOUR benefits.

Annual Enrollment – November 8 - 23

HDHP and HSA = The Health & Savings Plan

Why is this plan the best?

What’s different?

  • How you pay for coverage
    • Premium costs are different
    • Deductible and co-pay/coinsurance amounts are different
  • Health & Savings Plan includes a savings component
    • For 2011 - Tenet provides an HIGHER annual contribution to your HSA of $950 employee only, $1,900 family
    • Wellness Incentives are higher on the HSP

What’s the same compared to other Tenet Plans?

  • Comprehensive coverage for health care services
  • Full coverage for preventive services
  • Highest coverage when using a Tenet facility
  • Financial protection from catastrophic illness or injury
  • Tenet pays a significant share of the cost
