2015 Health Plan Information and Rates
The Conference Board of Pension and Health Benefits have set the 2015 Rates for our Health Programs. These rates can be found on the Conference Website under the Administration, Benefits Page. We are happy to report that rates increased by a modest 1-3% for 2015.
The INUMC has a broad Health benefit available to its participants, including both a Preferred Provider Plan (PPO) and a Consumer Driven Health Plan (CDHP). Please note that for 2015, the deductible the PPO plan is increasing from $500 per individual/$1,000 per family to $750 per individual/$1,500 per family, as the former $500 deductible is no longer available in 2015. The information provided shows this change.
As a part of both plans, a Wellness program is provided through Virgin Health Miles and includes a yearly screening program, walking program with several reward levels and, with the PPO program the option to lower your premium costs by participating on both a Wellness Screening/Physical Exam with form completed by your doctor.
We are continuing our Wellness ministries for 2015. Information on two benefits of our Wellness program are explained below.
