3 A Message From Shelly Hester Dear Hunter Employee, Each year, Hunter reviews the quality and cost efficiency of our medical plan carriers to ensure they are providing the right care and managing costs to meet our employees needs. With double-digit cost increases for 2015, we decided to discontinue the Cigna HMO, Cigna Open Access Plus and Kaiser Permanente HMO effective December 31. For 2015, we will be introducing two new medical plans: Sharp Health Plan HMO 500 Meritain Health NationCare PPO 1,500 As the only San Diego-based commercial health plan, Sharp Health Plan offers exceptional coverage at an affordable cost right in our own backyard and throughout San Diego County and southern Riverside County. With the Meritain Health NationCare PPO 1,500, you have access to Aetna s Open Access network with significant discounts when you use network providers. In addition to the change in medical plans, we are also initiating different medical contribution rates for those employees with salaries below $50,999 and those with salaries above that amount. The changes to our medical plans will require each of us to make informed choices when it comes to choosing a medical plan and how we use health care services. So, during the 2015 Open Enrollment period (November 17 26), all employees must actively select the medical plan that best meets their needs and budget for the coming year. The 2015 employee contributions can be found starting on page 23 of this Guide. Your participation in our wellness program Hunter Lifeshift will determine your cost share for Hunter medical coverage in If you complete all of the required wellness activities, Hunter will invest more in your medical coverage by picking up a larger portion of the cost share. Take a few minutes to review this Guide. It will help you understand the changes to our medical plans and the differences between the coverage options available so you can make the best decisions for you and your family. You can also call the HR Service Center at (760) with your benefit questions. Sincerely, Shelly Hester Manager, HR Operations 1

6 Eligibility Employees Regular full-time active employees, working at least 30 hours per week, are eligible for benefits on the first day of the month following one month of employment. DEPENDENTS Eligibility for Spouses/Domestic Partners and Children In general, your eligible dependents include your legallymarried spouse, domestic partner and children up to age 26. Required documentation verifying dependent eligibility (i.e. birth certificate, marriage certificate) must be submitted to the HR Service Center as part of the enrollment process for your dependents. Eligibility for Other Dependents In some circumstances, additional individuals may be eligible for coverage under the Plan as your dependents. An individual who is either your Qualifying Child or Qualifying Relative will generally be eligible to enroll in the Plan on the same basis as your spouse/domestic partner and children. Refer to the table at right for more information. An individual who is not a Qualifying Child or a Qualifying Relative may still be eligible to enroll in the Plan, but you will generally be required to pay any contributions for coverage on an after-tax basis. The rules for determining when someone is eligible to enroll in the Plan as your dependent can be complicated. If you have any questions about whether someone is considered to be your dependent for purposes of the Plan, please contact the HR Service Center for more information. Dependents and the Dependent Care Reimbursement Account Special rules apply for determining when expenses incurred for a dependent are eligible for reimbursement under the Dependent Care Reimbursement Account. This is true even if a dependent is already enrolled in medical or other benefits available through the Plan. In order to get reimbursement through the Dependent Care Reimbursement Account for dependent care expenses, the dependent must (1) be a Qualifying Child under age 13, (2) be a Qualifying Child or a Qualifying Relative who is physically or mentally unable to care for him or herself and who shares the same principal residence with you for more than half the year, or (3) be your spouse and be physically or mentally unable to care for him or herself and share the same principal residence with you for more than half the year. If you have questions regarding how these rules may impact you, please contact the HR Service Center. Is the Person Your Child? To be a child eligible for coverage under the Plan, the person must satisfy both of the following conditions: RELATIONSHIP The person must be your child, stepchild or foster child; and AGE The child is under age 26. Note that your spouse, domestic partner, or grandchild are not eligible for coverage as your child. If the person is not your child, see if he or she is a qualifying child or a qualifying relative instead. Is the Person a Qualifying Child? To be a qualifying child, the person must satisfy all of the following conditions: RELATIONSHIP The person must be your child, stepchild, or foster child (if you are divorced, the child must live with you for the majority of the year); RESIDENCE The child lives with you as his or her primary residence for more than half of the year; AGE The child is under age 19, under age 24 if a fulltime student, or any age if totally disabled due to a physical or mental disability and enrolled in the Plan prior to age 24; SUPPORT The child does not provide more than half of his or her own support; and MARITAL/TAX STATUS The child must not have filed a joint return (other than for a claim of refund) with his or her spouse for the a year. If the person does not satisfy each of these conditions, see if he or she is a qualifying relative instead. Is the Person a Qualifying Relative? To be a qualifying relative, the person must satisfy all of the following conditions: RELATIONSHIP The person must be your relative (e.g., any children who do not meet the age requirements to be a Qualifying Child ); SUPPORT The person does not provide more than half of his or her own support; and STATUS The person cannot be a Qualifying Child 4

Examples of qualified status changes include: Change in the number of your eligible dependents because of marriage, birth, adoption, divorce, or death Change in employment status of you or your spouse or dependents, including commencement or termination of employment or change in work hours Change in residence or worksite for you, your spouse, or dependents You must notify the HR Service Center and submit required documentation if you are adding dependents to verify dependent eligibility within 30 days of the Change in Status to initiate a change in your benefits.

9 HUNTER OFFERS: Medical Hunter s Medical Plans Hunter offers a choice of two medical plans to keep you at your best. Remember to take advantage of the preventive care benefits offered by your plan. It s important to have regular checkups. Sharp Health Plan HMO 500 To enroll in the Sharp Health Plan HMO, you must live or work within Sharp Health Plan s service area for at least nine out of every twelve consecutive months and choose a Primary Care Physician (PCP) from the Sharp Health Plan s service area. Your PCP will manage your care and refer you to specialists as needed; all care except emergency or urgent care must be provided by HMO providers. Covered dependents are not required to live with you, but they must maintain their primary residence or work within Sharp Health Plan s service area unless enrolled as a full-time student at an accredited institution or unless coverage is provided under a medical support order. If a dependent lives outside the service area, he or she must select a PCP within the service area and must obtain all care from HMO providers inside the service area, except for emergency or urgent care. The HMO provides comprehensive benefits, including 100% coverage without a co-pay for preventive care; other services require a co-pay and/or deductible and co-insurance. There are no claim forms to submit. Sharp Health Plan providers are located throughout San Diego and southern Riverside counties. To find providers, go to or call (800) Meritain Health NationCare PPO 1,500 The NationCare PPO plan provides 100% coverage without a co-pay for in-network preventive care. For non-preventive care, you have a choice of using in-network providers and paying a set co-pay and/or co-insurance and deductible, or seeking care from any out-of-network qualified physician or facility and being reimbursed by the plan (usually at 50%), up to the allowable amount*, after any required deductible. Each time you receive care, you have the option to choose between network care and out-of-network care. You will have lower out-of-pocket costs when you use a network provider. NationCare utilizes the national Aetna Open Access provider network. To find providers, visit docfind/custom/mymeritain/. Be sure to click on Open Access Network when prompted for a network in the drop down box. * The allowable amount for out-of-network services under the NationCare PPO is based on the 80th percentile of usual and customary charges. 7

16 Reimbursement Accounts Turn on Tax Savings Reimbursement Accounts allow you to set aside pre-tax dollars to pay for eligible health care and dependent care expenses. Reimbursement Accounts There are two separate accounts you can participate in: Health Care Account Dependent Care Account During enrollment, you decide how much you want to contribute to either or both accounts. You may contribute up to $2,550 per year to the Health Care Account, and/or up to $5,000 per year to the Dependent Care Account (or up to $2,500 if you are married and file separate tax returns). You cannot change your contribution amounts during the plan year unless you have a Change in Status. Your contributions are deducted from your paycheck in equal amounts during the year. Because contributions are made before taxes are withheld, they are not subject to Social Security tax, federal income tax and, in most cases, state and local income taxes, so you save money. To enjoy the tax-saving benefits of the Reimbursement Accounts, you must re-enroll each year. Your elections do NOT carry forward from one year to the next. When you have an eligible expense, you submit a claim for reimbursement. The Health Care Account and Dependent Care Account function separately. This means you cannot use health care funds to pay dependent care expenses and vice-versa. Health care expenses are reimbursed up to the total amount of contributions elected for the calendar year, while dependent care expenses are reimbursed up to the total amount contributed to your account on the date your claim is processed. Note: If you terminate employment, you may submit claims for eligible expenses that are incurred through your date of termination. Health Care Reimbursement Account The Health Care Reimbursement Account (HCRA) gives you a tax break on many health care expenses that are not covered by other plans. By anticipating your expenses and arranging for deductions to be made from your paycheck, you can lower your tax bill. When you incur an eligible expense during the year: You can use the TRI-AD benefit card (see page 15) You can you will file a claim form for reimbursement. You must enclose a copy of the receipt showing the expense has been incurred. Your receipt must include the name and address of the person for whom the expense was incurred, date of service, description of services obtained or product purchased and the amount charged. Important IRS Rules Because the IRS is allowing you to reduce your taxes, certain restrictions apply. When you decide on your contribution to either or both accounts, be conservative in your estimate. Do not contribute more than what you are certain you will use during the plan year for eligible expenses. Any money that is left over after reimbursements are made for claims incurred through March 15 of the following plan year will be forfeited. 14

17 Eligible Health Care Expenses The following is a partial list of expenses that may be reimbursed under the HCRA. You may use the HCRA for yourself and your eligible dependents, as defined under IRC Section 152. To be eligible for reimbursement, the expense cannot be covered by other insurance.
