1 These plans are named for the deductible applicable to the "individual" for in-network service providers. The deductibles applicable to any other coverage level (for example, "Family coverage") or for services provided by out-of-network service providers will be significantly higher than (in many instances, double) the amounts captured in the names of the plans.
2 "Family" applies to all coverage levels except Employee-Only.
3 Not "True" Family: If more than one person in a family is covered under this plan, there are two ways the plan will begin to pay benefits for a covered family member. When a family member meets his or her individual deductible, benefits begin for that family member only, but not for the other family members. When the family deductible is met, benefits begin for every covered family member whether or not they have met their own individual deductibles. The family deductible can only be met by a combination of family members, as amounts counted toward individual deductibles count toward the larger family deductible. The out-of-pocket maximum functions in the same way. When a family member meets his or her individual out-of-pocket maximum, the out-of-pocket maximum is satisfied for that family member only, but not for the other family members. When the family out-of-pocket maximum is met, the out-of-pocket maximum is satisfied for every covered family member whether or not they have met their own individual out-of-pocket maximums. The family out-of-pocket maximum can only be met by a combination of family members, as amounts counted toward individual out-of-pocket maximums count toward the larger family out-of-pocket maximum.
4 "True" Family: This plan does not require that you or a covered eligible family member meet the "individual" deductible in order to satisfy the family deductible. If more than one person in a family is covered under this plan, benefits begin for any one covered family member only after the family deductible is satisfied. The family deductible may be met by one family member or a combination of family members. The out-of-pocket maximum functions in the same way. If more than one person in a family is covered under this plan, the out-of-pocket maximum is satisfied for any one covered family member when the family out-of-pocket maximum is satisfied. The family out-of-pocket maximum may be met by one family member or a combination of family members.
5 Office visit copays and prescriptions do not apply toward the annual deductible.
6 In addition to mail order, you will be able to fill a 90-day supply of your maintenance medications at a Walgreens retail pharmacy, at the same cost as you would through the mail order program. For all maintenance medications, after the first three fills, you must fill a 90-day supply either at Walgreens or through Expresss Scripts Mail Order or you will pay 100% of the cost for all subsequent fills.
