MEDICAL PLAN OVERVIEW

The Hess Medical Plan is administered by Anthem BlueCross BlueShield (Anthem). This gives you access to Anthem’s extensive National PPO (BlueCard PPO) network. What’s more, the Hess Medical Plan comes with a special tax-advantaged Health Savings Account (HSA). When you enroll in the Hess Medical Plan, you automatically receive prescription drug and vision coverage.

COVID-19 and Your Medical Benefits

Hess Medical Plan

If you are diagnosed as having COVID-19, you won’t have to pay for COVID-19 treatment from doctors, hospitals and other health care providers in Anthem’s network. And testing is covered at 100% whether it’s done in or out of Anthem’s network. However, a doctor must order a test for you. Check Anthem’s website for more information.

How the Plan Works

Each year you enroll for coverage, Hess puts $500 into your HSA if you have employee only coverage and $1,000 if you have employee + one or employee + family coverage. These amounts are prorated for new hires based on calendar quarter of hire date.

You can also contribute up to $3,050 (employee only coverage) or $6,100 (employee + one or employee + family coverage) of your own tax-free money into your HSA. (These amounts may be slightly higher for new hires due to the proration of the company contribution, but total contributions cannot exceed the 2020 annual IRS maximums of $3,550 for an individual or $7,100 for a family.)

If you’re age 55 or older, you may contribute an additional $1,000 each year. You can use the money in your HSA to pay out-of-pocket health care expenses now, or you can save it for later.

After you meet the deductible, coinsurance kicks in to share the cost. Once you meet your out-of-pocket maximum, the plan pays 100 percent of eligible expenses for the remainder of the year.
