3 2015 employee benefit guide Important Information As You Prepare For Your 2015 Benefit Elections Changing your Benefits During the Year IRS regulations limit when you can make changes to your benefits during the year. Once enrolled, you cannot change your medical, dental or vision coverage, or your FSA elections outside annual Open Enrollment unless you have a permitted change under IRS rules. If you have an eligible change or a question related to an eligible change, contact Human Resources as soon as possible as you only have 30 days from the event to make any changes. Examples of events that may allow you to make benefit changes: Change in Legal Marital Status Change in Number of Dependents Change in Dependent Eligibility Change in Employment Status (including spouse employment status) Paying for Benefits with Pre-Tax Dollars Your share of the cost for medical, dental, vision care and flexible spending accounts are deducted from your pay on a pre-tax basis, as allowed by the IRS. This saves you significant money by reducing your taxable income. Short term disability, voluntary life insurance and all Unum product premiums are paid with after-tax dollars. You have the option of making pre-tax or after-tax contributions to your 403b Retirement account. Who is considered an eligible dependent child? Your legal dependent child is eligible for coverage until the end of the month in which he or she turns age twenty-six (26), regardless of marital or student status. If you have a disabled dependent please speak to our HR Benefits Department as that dependent may be eligible beyond age twenty-six (26).

4 Lake Charles Memorial s Physician Hospital Organization (PHO) Network Lake Charles Memorial Health System continues to be the healthcare leader in Southwest Louisiana; providing quality healthcare since As a Lake Charles Memorial employee you have access to significantly discounted healthcare benefits if you use a PHO network provider. Our medical plan requires that you first seek approval from the Lake Charles Memorial Medical Committee before accessing an outside provider. Below are some need-to-know facts about Lake Charles Memorial s PHO network. Utilizing Providers Outside of the PHO Network Services rendered outside the Lake Charles Memorial PHO Network will require prior-approval from the Medical Committee of Lake Charles Memorial Health System. Coverage is contingent upon the provider(s) participating in the Aetna network. If the service is available within the PHO network, approval WILL NOT be granted. The Approval Process: If you need treatment that cannot be provided inside of the PHO network, you must first get a referral letter from your doctor to submit to the Lake Charles Memorial Health System Medical Committee. That letter needs to provide background information on your condition, what treatment is needed and to which provider(s) you are being referred. Before submitting your referral to the Medical Committee, you are responsible for making sure the provider you choose is in the Aetna PPO network. Claims will be denied if your provider is not an Aetna provider. Please visit the Aetna provider website referenced at the bottom right corner of this page to locate Aetna providers. You can also contact Meritain Health if you need help finding a provider. *Please Note: Ochsner Medical Center of New Orleans and Childrens Hospital of New Orleans will still require pre-approval for services. However, if approved, claims will be covered at the in-network PHO level of benefits. Lab Services There are three labs within the PHO network: 1. Lake Charles Memorial Hospital Lab 2. Medical Lab of Southwest Louisiana 3. The Pathology Laboratory Labs are covered at 100% if they are performed at the Lake Charles Memorial Hospital Lab or during an office visit. Labs performed at Medical Lab of Southwest LA or The Pathology Lab will be applied to your deductible first then be covered at 80%. If your labs are performed in a physician s office and have to be sent out to a lab for the actual testing, the physician must send off your lab samples to an in-network laboratory in order for the tests to be covered. If your labs are sent to or performed at a lab that is not in the PHO network and you did not receive prior approval from the Medical Committee to utilize the out of network lab, your lab work claims will be denied. It is your responsibility to make sure your physician sends your labs to an in-network provider. Durable Medical Equipment (DME) There are three DME providers within the PHO network: 1. Carmichaels Cashway Pharmacy 2. First Option 3. Medical Technologies 4. In addition, Aetna DME providers are also covered as PHO!! Physician prescribed DME purchased from the above three providers will be covered at the PHO level of benefits. In addition, if you purchase a physician prescribed DME from any Aetna DME provider, the claim will be covered at the PHO level of benefits as well. If you purchase any DME from a provider that is not in the Lake Charles Memorial PHO or Aetna network, the claim will not be covered. Please visit the Aetna provider website referenced at the bottom right corner of this page to locate Aetna providers. Out of PHO Service Area Employees and Dependents If you or your dependent live primarily outside of the Lake Charles Memorial PHO service area, which is a 100 mile radius from the hospital located at 1701 Oak Park Blvd., Lake Charles, LA 70601, we understand that your residence may not be within reach of the PHO network. However there are Aetna providers available to you. If you register yourself or your dependent with Human Resources as out of area, your claims for services rendered by an Aetna provider will be covered at the PHO level of benefits. Services rendered by a provider that is not in the Aetna network will not be covered. Please visit the Aetna provider website referenced below to locate Aetna providers. Locating an Aetna Provider If there is not a Lake Charles Memorial PHO provider that provides the services you are seeking, you can locate an Aetna provider in your area by visiting docfind/custom/mymeritain. Please be sure to choose the Open Choice PPO plan in the search options. You can also contact Meritain Health at if you need help locating an Aetna provider. Please remember, if the service is available within the PHO network, the services will not be covered elsewhere. 4 We are Memorial. Everything your healthcare should be.

These prescriptions will be covered with just your standard Generic copayment!

Brand medications that are to be removed from coverage will include, but are not limited to, the following medications: Aciphex, Prevacid, Prilosec, Protonix, Nexium, and Dexilant. Why is LCMH making this change? Lake Charles Memorial is making this change to offer our members a cost savings by covering over-the-counter PPI medications with a standard generic copayment. There are many products now available over the counter, and studies and medical experts agree that they work just as well and are just as safe, but have a much lower retail price than prescription versions. 8 We are Memorial.

11 2015 employee benefit guide Whether you are married with children, single with no children, a single parent or any other lifestyle status, a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) can save you money. An FSA allows you to set aside pre-tax dollars to cover qualified expenses that you would normally pay out of your pocket with after-tax dollars. You pay no federal income or state income taxes on the money you place in your FSA. The FSA is actually comprised of two accounts: a health care spending account and a dependent care account. Employees who work on a regular full-time basis or on a regular part-time basis are eligible to participate. Your FSA contributions will not roll over into the next year. You must re-enroll in the FSA program each year. Health Care Spending Account The Health Care Spending Account may be used for any medical, prescription drugs, dental or vision care expenses not reimbursed by Lake Charles Memorial Health System s health plan. These expenses may include the deductible, coinsurance, or costs not covered by the plan. The maximum yearly contribution is $2,500. With your Health Care Spending Account you will receive a benefits debit card, Benny Card. This card works like any Visa or Mastercard but can only be used to pay for eligible expenses such as prescription drugs, medical copays, as well as vision and dental expenses. For a complete list of eligible expenses, visit Lost or stolen cards will require a $5 replacement fee. Cards are issued once when you initially enroll; they are not reissued annually. Dependent Care Account The Dependent Care Account may be used to pay for dependent care expenses that enable you or your spouse to work. You may claim dependent care expenses for your children under age 13, or for a dependent adult or child over 13 who requires day care. Expenses that qualify for the Dependent Care Account include the cost of care in licensed day care centers, pre-school tuition and care provided in or outside of your home, such as an adult day care facility. The maximum yearly contribution is $5,000. End Of The Year Run-Out Healthcare FSA: Lake Charles Memorial has opted for the grace period extension offered by the IRS, which allows an additional 2 1/2 months (3/15/15) to incur expenses toward your healthcare FSA after the plan year has ended. These expenses incurred between January 1st and March 15th cannot be paid for using your Benefit Debit Card (Benny Card). Charges to your Benny Card are credited to current year contributions. Expenses incurred in the grace period must be submitted by paper claim for reimbursement. Claim forms can be found on the LCMH Intranet and on SmartBen. Dependent Care FSA: You may incur dependent care claims until the end of the plan year (12/31/14) Healthcare and dependent care FSA claims can be submitted with proper documentation until 4/15/2015. Be sure to save your receipts! Some expenses will require additional information, including receipts to verify eligibility of the expense to comply with IRS rules. That is why it is important to save all receipts for expenses which you use your Benny Card to pay. If you fail to submit receipts promptly when they are requested, the expenses will be declared ineligible and you will have to reimburse your account. If there is continued non-compliance, you could jeopardize the tax-exempt status of your account and lose access to your benefit debit card. **Tip: If you are asked to provide a receipt from a physician or dentist s office and can t find the receipt, contact their office and ask if they can provide you with an additional copy. Don t pass up the opportunity to use your pre-tax dollars!

14 Retirement Planning 403(b) Tax-Deferred Contribution Account All employees are eligible to participate in the LCMH 403(b) Tax-Deferred Contribution Account upon date of hire. Lake Charles Memorial Health System has made a conscientious decision to assist employees in saving for their future by enforcing an automatic enrollment in the 403(b) retirement plan at a 3% contribution level. What this means is that if a new employee does not personally enroll or decline participation, he or she will be automatically enrolled in the plan and automatically have 3% of his or her base compensation for hours worked deferred into their individual account. Employees are immediately 100% vested in these contributions. Newly eligible employees will have 90 days to opt out of participation in the plan and request reimbursement of their contributions. Since inception, our enrollment in the retirement plan has increased significantly which is our goal. We feel that as an employer, we have a responsibility to ensure that our employees take advantage of the benefits provided. In 2015, we are implementing another phase in retirement savings for employees who do not take initiative to manage their plan. If the employees who were automatically enrolled did not touch their plan by allocating funds or increasing/decreasing their contribution level, they will see an automatic increase of 1% to their contribution. Meaning, if you were automatically enrolled in 2014 at 3% and made zero changes to your account, your contribution in 2015 will be 4%. 401(a) Account Employees who participate in the LCMH 403(b) Tax-Deferred Contribution Account may participate in the LCMH 401(a) Retirement Planning Account beginning January 1 or July 1, coinciding with or immediately following the date on which all eligibility requirements are met: 1. Completion of one (1) year of eligibility service, to include 1,000 working hours by the anniversary of your hire date. 2. Attain age Employed in a job classification covered by the Plan as an eligible class. You are in an eligible class if you are employed by LCMH in any capacity, and you are not a leased employee. As a Defined Contribution Plan, LCMH will make a matching contribution to your 401(a) Account equal to 100% of the first 3% of your contribution to the 403(b) Tax-Deferred Contribution Plan, based on your hours worked and subject to the Federal Matching Contribution limits. The graded vesting schedule, as illustrated below, applies to the 401(a) Account: Years of Vesting Service Vested Interest Less than 2 0% 2, but less than 3 20% 3, but less than 4 40% 4, but less than 5 60% 5, but less than 6 80% 6 or more 100% Please contact Human Resources or refer to the LCMH Retirement Plan Summary Plan Description for further plan details. Plan Ahead for Your Retirement How much income do you think you'll need during retirement? According to financial planners, you'll probably need about 70% to 80% of your pre-retirement income after you retire. Have you thought about where that income will come from? Reaching your retirement goal is easier with pre-tax contributions from both you and your employer into a retirement plan. The bottom line is, the more you put away monthly, and/or the higher the rate of return on your investments, the more likely you'll reach your retirement goal. Need Advice? For help with retirement planning needs such as funds allocation, projecting your retirement income requirements, etc., you can contact Investment Advisor, Jeff Wylie at to schedule an appointment. 14 We are Memorial.
