Enhanced Medical Benefits for 2024:

  • Behavioral and mental health covered at 100% after deductible. For both the Health Savings Plan and the Total Health PPO Plan, in-network behavioral, mental health and substance abuse benefits will be covered at 100% after you meet your deductible.
  • Health Savings Plan (HSP) and Total Health PPO Plan design changes. You’ll see a few changes to the plans’ deductibles and out-of-pocket maximums. And if you’re enrolled in the HSP, per the IRS, you can contribute more to your Health Savings Account: up to $4,150 if you have individual coverage, and $8,300 if you cover dependents.
