Medical Plan Options

AETNA SELECT 1
The Aetna Select 1 plan offers access to a national network of providers and facilities. There are no out-of-network benefits. The Aetna Select 1 plan has a $200 deductible per person, up to $600 per family. Once the deductible is met, participants pay copays for services. Preventive care is free and bypasses the deductible. Prescription drugs also bypass the deductible, but require copays.*

AETNA SELECT 2
The Aetna Select 2 plan offers access to a national network of providers and facilities. There are no out-of-network benefits. The Aetna Select 2 plan has a $300 deductible per person, up to $900 per family. Once the deductible is met, participants pay copays for services. Preventive care is free and bypasses the deductible. Prescription drugs also bypass the deductible, but require copays.*

To find an Aetna Select 1 or 2 provider, visit www.aetna.com and click “Find a Provider” from the homepage. Search for providers in the “Aetna Select Open Access” Network.

HRA
The HRA plan offers access to a national network of providers and facilities and out-of-network benefits (at higher costs). The plan has a $400 per person health fund - paid by UM - to help pay for up front medical expenses, including the $1,500 per person deductible, up to $4,500 per family. In-network preventive care is free and bypasses the deductible. However, prescription drugs do not bypass the deductible, which must be met prior to copays.* 

The maximum fund a family will receive is $1,200. The unused funds roll over each year. Click here to view a presentation explaining how the HRA Plan works and here for a Quick Start Guide.

To find an HRA provider, visit www.aetna.com and click “find a provider” from the homepage. Search for providers in the “Choice POS II Open Access” Network. 

*Note, any prescription NOT covered by OptumRx is the full responsibility of the member and WILL NOT be applied toward your deductible or out-of-pocket maximum.
