KCTCS OPEN ENROLLMENT OCTOBER 10 24, 2016 HEALTH CARE REFORM The Affordable Care Act The Kentucky Employee Health Plan (KEHP) meets all requirements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The PLAN provides affordable health care insurance that is offered to all employees. Employees may shop kynect (the state marketplace) for coverage.

Purchasing coverage through kynect will disqualify the employee and dependents from receiving potential tax credits. KCTCS PERSONNEL SYSTEM The Contribution Strategy The state non-tobacco user contribution rate is reduced by 25% to the employee. KCTCS personnel system employees pay reduced out-of-pocket monthly contributions. KCTCS picks up that additional 25% for the employee. The $50 Benefit Allowance is available to eligible employees to offset

benefit expenses. 2017 PLAN YEAR HIGHLIGHTS Whats new? Whats changing? The four health plan options remain the same 1% increase in premiums for Standard PPO and Standard CDHP plans Some changes to annual deductible and outof-pocket maximums NEW LivingWell Promise deadline moved

Members enrolling in the Waiver Dental/Vision Only HRA do not need to attest to enrollment in another plan. Note: If you or your spouse or dependent is contributing to a Health Savings Account (HSA), consult a tax advisor prior to enrolling in a HRA or FSA. FSA VS. HRA In addition to the HRA, an employee may fund a healthcare Flexible

Spending Account (FSA) to cover unpaid qualified medical expenses such as deductibles, co-pays, co-insurance, dental, vision, etc. If you have both a FSA and a General Purpose Waiver HRA, reimbursement will be made from the FSA account balance first. The FSA balance is forfeited after the end of the plan year (12/31/17) and the 2-1/2 month grace period (3/15/18). The Waiver HRA will not roll-over if you elect to enroll in a health plan in 2018. FLEXIBLE SPENDING ACCOUNTS Two types of FSAs are available

Health Care Account (HCA) for medical expenses Minimum $5/paycheck (including $50 Benefit Allowance); maximum annual contribution remains $2,550 for 2017. Per federal regulations, only $500 of employer contributions may be used to fund a FSA.

Employees wishing to enroll in a FSA must do so every year an IRS regulation. Enrollment must be made in PeopleSoft Self-Service FSA enrollees may use the Benny card for health expenses, or file a paper claim for health or dependent care expenses Claims for reimbursement can be made for any dependents up to age 26. Save your receipts! Substantiation for a Benny card charge may be required. FLEXIBLE SPENDING ACCOUNTS (continued) Termination date for a FSA (and HRA) is the date employment ends or the

date of retirement. Following termination of the FSA, you have 90 days to file paper claims for reimbursement of expenses incurred through the last date of service. Note: If you or your spouse or dependent is contributing to a Health Savings Account (HSA), consult a tax advisor prior to enrolling in a HRA or FSA. FSA GRACE PERIOD NO FSA carryover of $500 as stated in the DEI Benefits Selection Guide. KCTCS elects to use a grace period method instead of a carryover method to utilize prior years money Any amount of leftover money from 2016 may be used and claimed until 3/15/2017.

You may use your FSA Benny card for grace period expenses. Reimbursements will automatically be applied to the correct year. DEPENDENT CARE FSA Maximum contribution is based on employees tax filing status Check the Chard-Snyder paper enrollment form for maximums Plan maximum is $4,992/year Reimbursement is done only by paper claim form Direct deposits of reimbursements is available Retirees not eligible to participate No grace period on Dependent Care FSA Does allow for a run out period claims for 2016 must be filed within 90 days of December 31, 2016

HEALTH REIMBURSEMENT ACCOUNTS Embedded HRA LivingWell CDHP or Standard CDHP Administered by WageWorks and DEI NEW Funds of $7500 or less will rollover to the 2018 CDHP plan NEW Dependents must be on the plan in order to use embedded HRA funds. WageWorks Healthcare VISA issued for use at local vendors New card will not be issued unless the old one has expired. Any remaining HRA money from the 2016 CDHP plan will rollover to the 2017 CDHP plan in April 2017. If you have 2016 expenses to claim in 2017, you MUST file a paper claim with WageWorks after January 1 for services rendered in 2016.

You cannot use 2017 money to pay for 2016 expenses. HEALTH REIMBURSEMENT ACCOUNTS (continued) General Purpose or Dental/Vision Only HRA Administered by Chard-Snyder Benny MasterCard issued for use at local vendors New cards will not be issued unless the old ones have expired.

You cannot use 2017 money to pay for 2016 expenses Your Benny card does not know the difference between 2016 and 2017 money. HEALTH REIMBURSEMENT ACCOUNTS (continued) A pharmacy tip for General Purpose waiver HRA users: If you waived because your spouse has health coverage elsewhere, use your spouse health plan card first to pay for prescriptions.

Then use your HRA Benny card to pay any remaining co-pay or coinsurance amounts. This saves your HRA money for future use or rollover, instead of paying the bulk of that Rx cost with your HRA money.

request to verify an expense If a refund is issued for an expense paid by either a WageWorks or Benny card: The card should be credited by the provider. If the provider refunds the member directly either by cash or check, the member is required to refund the card, per IRS guidelines. If you have the Dental/Vision Only HRA, and want money specifically used from the FSA for dental or vision expenses, a paper claim form must be submitted to Chard-Snyder requesting such.
