3 3 individual tips for buying your health plan 1 Make sure your plan fits your needs. A good health plan keeps you covered so you can focus on your health and not have to worry about your financial security. Your health plan should fit your needs and your budget. So you should ask yourself, what kind of person are you? Young and healthy: If you re relatively young and rarely need to see a doctor, your best value may be in a high-deductible plan with a low monthly premium. Families with young children: If you re in need of health insurance for more than just yourself, you might want to consider a plan with a higher premium that will reduce your out-of-pocket expenses (deductibles and coinsurance). Older adults or those with health problems: If you visit the doctor more frequently, you might want to consider a comprehensive health plan with a higher premium. If you wind up in the hospital, the out-of-pocket deductible and coinsurance you ll pay could well exceed any premium savings a lower-cost plan would provide. WPS offers a variety of plans to fit all of your needs. Peace of mind is right around the corner. Turn the page for more details! 2 Consider your coverage. Another major factor to consider when buying a health plan is the coverage it provides. Take some time to think about your needs and then research the coverage provided by your health plan. WPS health plans provide comprehensive coverage. WPS covers 100% of the costs for routine preventive care services such as annual exams, eye exams, well-child visits, screenings, and immunizations when you see an in-network doctor. You ll also enjoy benefits for a wide range of medical services including inpatient and outpatient services, -rays, and emergency room care. Don t wait until you re sick to make sure you re covered! 3 Choose the doctors you want to see. When you review health plans and what they offer, you want to know you can see the doctors you trust and go to the medical facilities you re used to when you need care. You want them to be in your health plan s provider network. Provider Network: Group of doctors, hospitals, and other health care professionals that an insurance company contracts with to provide high-quality, cost-effective services to members. Because WPS individual and family plans are preferred provider organization (PPO) plans, they allow convenient access to the physicians and health care facilities you know and trust. In addition to a broad selection of high-quality in-network providers, you ll also enjoy out-of-network benefits. Unlike an HMO, you aren t required to select a primary care physician and you don t have to obtain a referral to see a specialist. You also don t need prior approval for most medical services. 3

4 WPS Individual Preferred Plan Types Traditional PPO plans Whether you re looking for a health plan with prescription drug benefits and low out-of-pocket costs, an economical plan with a low premium, or something in between, our traditional PPO plans bring you dependable protection with benefits that closely resemble many employer-based plans. What you get: Comprehensive benefits for a wide range of medical services, including inpatient and outpatient services, -rays, and emergency room care Prescription drug coverage options, with or without cost sharing (copays) Convenient copays for office visits,* including chiropractic visits 100% coverage for preventive care Ideal for: People interested in a traditional plan with richer benefits, including prescription drug coverage Individuals and families interested in the predictability of copays for routine care Those interested in lower annual deductibles and out-of-pocket costs Traditional PPO Multiple copay options for office visits: 1. Copay 2. Free Primary Care 100% coverage for in-network preventive care Prescription drug coverage option Prescription drug copay option Tax-favored savings account In- and out-of-network benefits Choice of regional and statewide provider networks Health Savings Account (HSA) Dental coverage option Vision and health club discount program Online health center *Office visit copay applies only to certain deductible levels. See plan policy for details. 4

5 Health Savings Account (HSA) plans Take control of your health care spending with an HSA-qualified, high-deductible health plan (HDHP) from WPS. An HSA acts like a personal savings account, except the money is used exclusively to pay for medical expenses. You can build your savings and pay for qualified medical expenses completely tax-free. Your money accumulates from year-to-year and your account travels with you, whether you change jobs, become unemployed, or switch insurance carriers. How it works: Save money each month with a higher deductible that reduces your premium. Invest the money you save, tax-free, into your HSA. Pay for your initial health care costs (except preventive care) until you meet your plan s deductible.** Once you reach your deductible, the plan starts paying for covered expenses. What you get: 100% coverage for preventive care Comprehensive benefits for a wide range of medical services, including inpatient and outpatient services, -rays, and emergency room care Lower premiums than traditional plans Tax-favored savings account to budget for medical expenses or for retirement after 65 Prescription drug coverage Ideal for: People interested in trading higher out-of-pocket costs for lower premiums Those interested in the tax benefits of a Health Savings Account (HSA) Those interested in a personal savings account to pay for qualified medical expenses **Once your deductible has been met, cost sharing in the form of coinsurance may apply. 5

6 Using your health plan Wisconsin-based service When you call WPS, you talk to highly trained professionals who live and work right here in Wisconsin not in another country. We promise to resolve your questions quickly, with a friendly professionalism that reflects our Midwestern values. Free preventive care* WPS plans cover 100% of the costs for routine preventive care services such as annual exams, eye exams, well-child visits, screenings, and immunizations when you see an in-network doctor. You won t pay a penny toward your deductible or coinsurance! Freedom to choose your doctor Unlike an HMO, you won t be required to choose a primary care physician. You won t need a referral to see a specialist. And you ll enjoy benefits both in and out of network. (That means we pay for covered services regardless of the physician or facility you choose!) You ll receive richer benefits (WPS will pay more of your costs) when you visit health care providers within the network. Prescription drug coverage Save money on prescription drugs by home delivery or at more than 63,000 pharmacies nationwide. Take your choice of a separate deductible or upgrade to our convenient copay option to keep your costs predictable. $0 copay preventive drugs WPS provides $0 copay on select preventive drugs that target common conditions such as high blood pressure, cholesterol, heart conditions, and asthma. These popular drugs go above and beyond preventive care specific drugs outlined by the ACA. Save on vision care and eyewear Take advantage of our vision care discount program to save on eye exams, frames, lenses, and even laser vision correction when you visit providers from the EyeMed Vision Care Network. Your WPS ID card is all you need to receive your discount.
