Some have expressed concerns that the volume of information is overwhelming and we wanted to provide a brief summary and a link to the rate chart estimates.
If we go to the ODL drug list it will save us 1.5% and currently it will only impact a few of our members who would have to switch to a generic equivalent or pay a higher copay.
EE $6.16 per paycheck savings
EE + 1 $14.17 per paycheck savings
Full Family $17.37 per paycheck savings
Adjusted Alternative Care Plan (remove massage and reduce benefit from $2500 to $2000) will save you this much:
EE $4.69 per paycheck savings
EE + 1 $10.79 per paycheck savings
Full Family $13.23 per paycheck savings
If we stay with Option 1, which is our current plans with the 9% increase, the additional out of paycheck costs are the following:
PSN Plan A $500 Deductible
EE $41.93 per paycheck additional cost
EE + 1 $96.23 per paycheck additional cost
Full Family $118.38 per paycheck additional cost
It is imperative that you review the rate charts to understand what the other options will cost you.
These charts are estimates at this point, but they should put you in the ballpark.
We need to make a decision by Tuesday concerning which plan we will go with, if we want to get things in place by July 1. With this in mind we will keep the survey open until end of day on Monday May 28. Also, if you have already completed the survey you can take it again to change your answers.
