2 This brochure provides a summary of the Health and Welfare, Retirement, Paid Time Off (PTO) and other Benefit Programs at Mount Sinai. BENEFLEX Mount Sinai Medical Center Staff (non-faculty) hired on or after 1/1/2004 and scheduled to work at least 60% of a normal work week are eligible to participate in the Beneflex program. The following dependents may participate in the BeneFlex medical, prescription drug, dental, vision and life insurance plans: Spouses or same-gender domestic partners, same gender spouses Dependent children, regardless of their student and or marital status, may be enrolled through the end of the month in which they reach age 26. Medical Plan/ Prescription Drug Plan The BeneFlex Program (the Program ) offers five medical plan options to choose from, as listed below, all providing comprehensive health care coverage. Three United Healthcare PPO options Basic, Plus and the High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) Two HMO options - Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield and HIP Decline coverage (only if covered under another medical plan) HDHP Prescription coverage (Express Scripts) is provided with the election of the HDHP medical option. Basic Prescription coverage (Express Scripts) is provided with the election of any of the other medical plan options. The United Healthcare Basic, Plus and High Deductible Health Plan PPO options provide three ways to access medical care: Mount Sinai Providers participating in the United Healthcare Top Tier PPO Network Other providers in the United Healthcare PPO Network (Middle Tier) Out-of-Network providers Specialist, Mental Health and Substance Abuse Copay (Middle Tier) Adults: UHC Specialist copay basic plan $60, plus plan $50 UHC Mental Health and Sustance Abuse Services (basic plan $25, plus plan $20) Dependent Children up to the age of 26: UHC Specialist co-pays basic plan $25, plus plan $20 UHC Mental Health and Substance Abuse services (basic plan $25, plus plan $20) HIP Specialist co-pay $30; Empire Blue Cross $40 The HMOs provide access to medical care through their respective networks of physicians and facilities only. Generally, the office copay is $30 per visit and the hospital admission copay is $250. *For purposes of he Beneflex program spouse means a spouse as defined under Federal law, which includes only a person of the opposite sex. While same-sex spouses are eligible for coverage under the Beneflex program, they are treated as same-sex domestic partners. Important Note about Taxation of Domestic Partner Benefits: If you elect coverage for a domestic partner (including a same-sex spouse) and/or the domestic partner s children, certain tax rules may apply. Unless your domestic partner and/or his or her children satisfy the definition of a dependent under Section 152 of the Internal Revenue Code, your contributions for your domestic partner s and/or his or her children s coverage must be made on an after-tax basis. In addition, the fair market value of your partner s/children s coverage, in excess of any after-tax employee contributions, is taxable to you and is imputed as income for Federal tax purposes and may also be subject to State and City income tax. While the law is unclear on the precise definition of fair market value, a common approach, and the approach used by Mount Sinai, is to define the term as the difference between the premium value (total of employer and employee contribution) for covering the employee and the domestic partner/children and the value of the coverage without the domestic partner/children. The imputed income calculation is complex. You should seek the advice of a tax professional concerning the taxability of coverage for your domestic partner and/or his or her children.
