Market Place Plan Types
Health Maintenance Organization (HMO)
A type of health insurance plan that usually limits coverage to care from doctors who
work for or contract with the HMO. It generally won’t cover out-of-network care except
in an emergency. An HMO may require you to live or work in its service area to be
eligible for coverage. HMOs often provide integrated care and focus on prevention and
wellness. (No Out of Network Coverage)
Preferred Provider Organization (PPO)
A type of health plan that contracts with medical providers, such as hospitals and
doctors, to create a network of participating providers. You pay less if you use providers
that belong to the plan’s network. You can use doctors, hospitals and providers outside
of the network for an additional cost.
(Out of Network Coverage but at Higher Cost-sharing)
Exclusive Provider Organization (EPO)
A more restrictive type of preferred provider organization plan under which employees
must use providers from the specified network of physicians and hospitals to receive
coverage; there is no coverage for care received from a non-network provider except in
an emergency situation. (No Out of Network Coverage)

Embedded VS Aggregate Family
Deductibles & Out-of-Pocket Maximums
There are two different types of deductibles: traditional, also called Embedded(PerMember), and Aggregate (Single), also known as non-embedded.
Embedded Family Deductible & Out-of-Pocket maximum (Most Common)
If you are on a family (two or more members covered) medical plan with an
Embedded deductible, your plan contains two components, an individual deductible
and a family deductible. Having two components to the deductible allows each
member of your family the opportunity to get her medical bills covered prior to the
entire dollar amount of the family deductible being met. The individual deductible is
embedded in the family deductible.
Aggregate Family Deductible & Out-of-Pocket maximum (Primarily Used with HSA’s)
If your insurance policy contains a Aggregate family deductible, an individual
deductible is not embedded in the family deductible. In this situation, before your
insurance helps you pay for any of your family's medical bills, the entire amount of the
deductible must be met. It can be met by one family member or by a combination of
family members. There are no benefits until expenses equaling the deductible amount
have been incurred.

High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP)
&
Health Savings Account (HSA)
This is a representative sample of the Carrier's plans and rates.
It is not intended to promote one Carrier over another Carrier
15
Health Savings Account (HSA)
Health Savings Account (HSA)
A medical savings account available to taxpayers who are enrolled in a qualified High
Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). The funds contributed to the account aren’t subject to
federal income tax at the time of deposit. Funds must be used to pay for qualified
medical expenses. Unlike a Flexible Spending Account (FSA), funds roll over year to year
if you don’t spend them.
• HDHP / HSA can be associated with any plan types – HMO, PPO, & EPO
• To open an HSA account the plan type MUST be a QUALIFIED HDHP product
• The amount a person can contribute to their HSA account on an annual basis is
based on the plan types Deductible level.
• Employers can also contribute to their employees HSA account, but the employer
and the employees contribution cannot exceed the Deductible level.
• A person can use funds from their HSA account to pay for covered & non-covered
medical services, a Federal regulation list will show qualified medical expenses.
• There is a tax penalty for withdrawing funds from your HSA account to pay for nonmedical expenses, before the age 65.

HSA Penalties & Children Coverage
18
Penalties for Nonqualified Expenses
Those under age 65 (unless totally and permanently disabled) who use HSA funds for
nonqualified medical expenses face a penalty of 20 percent of the funds used for such expenses.
Funds spent for nonqualified purposes are also subject to income tax.
Coverage of Adult Children
While the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act allows parents to add their adult children
(up to age 26) to their health plans, the IRS has not changed its definition of a dependent for
health savings accounts. This means that an employee whose 24-year-old child is covered on his
HSA-qualified high-deductible health plan is not eligible to use HSA funds to pay that child’s
medical bills.
If account holders can't claim a child as a dependent on their tax returns, then they can't spend
HSA dollars on services provided to that child. According to the IRS definition, a dependent is a
qualifying child (daughter, son, stepchild, sibling or stepsibling, or any descendant of these) who:
• Has the same principal place of abode as the covered employee for more than one-half of
the taxable year.
• Has not provided more than one-half of his or her own support during the taxable year.
• Is not yet 19 (or, if a student, not yet 24) at the end of the tax year or is permanently and
totally disabled.

Sample of An UnitedHealthcare SBC
Single Individual Family Deductible
Notice UHC does not provide a Family Deductible level. Each family member
must meet a $5000 per person Deductible before coinsurance applies
Important Questions Answers
Why this Matters:
What is the overall
deductible?
$5,000 per person per calendar year.
Deductible does not apply to preventive
care or outpatient prescription drugs.
Coinsurance and copayments don’t
count toward the deductible.
You must pay all the costs up to the deductible amount before this plan begins to pay for
covered services you use. Check your policy or plan document to see when the deductible
starts over (usually, but not always, January 1st). See the chart starting on page 2 for how
much you pay for covered services after you meet the deductible.
Are there other
deductibles for specific
services?
Yes. $500 per person per calendar year
for Tiers 2-4 outpatient prescription
drugs. There are no other specific
deductibles.
You must pay all the costs for these services up to the specific deductible amount before
this plan begins to pay for these services.
Is there an out–of–
pocket limit on my
expenses?
Yes. $6,350 per person and $12,700 per
The out-of-pocket limit is the most you could pay during a coverage period (usually one
family per calendar year. Other limits
year) for your share of the cost of covered services. This limit helps you plan for health care
