A Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) can help you save on taxes when paying for care and planning ahead for future expenses. If you participate in the Health Savings Plan, you can contribute pre-tax earning in an HSA and/or a Limited PurposeFSA. However, this tool only allows you to model contributions to an HSA.

I am age 55 or older and qualify for the increased HSA contribution limit.

Estimates are based on national average medical costs. Because costs vary by provider and not all service details are included, actual costs may differ from what is shown in the Decision Support Tool. Actual costs may also vary based on the order in which services are incurred and by the specific family member using a service (if applicable). In the event of any contradiction between the information contained in this tool and the Plan Documents, the Plan Documents shall govern in all cases.

This tool is designed to help you choose the medical plan that is right for you in two easy steps:

Then, you'll be able to see an estimate of what you'll spend annually for the upcoming year under each medical plan option. You can also use the savings account section to consider how much you should contribute on a before-tax basis to cover your expected medical expenses.

Because costs can vary by provider and by region, your actual costs may differ from the national averages used by this tool.

Unit costs above represent the average allowed charge for each service. The allowed charge is the amount of submitted charges eligible for payment for all claims according to health plan documents/contracts. Specifically, it is the amount eligible after applying pricing guidelines, but before deducting third party, copayment, coinsurance, or deductible amounts. The allowed charge represents the amount a plan will consider for adjudication for a covered service. The unit costs above include network and non-network services.

In the event of any discrepancy between the information contained in this tool and official plan documents, the latter shall govern in all cases.

Please select the group that applies to you.

Full-time teammates work a scheduled 30 hours or more per week, based on your FTE in Core Connect.

To earn the wellness incentives, complete these activities between January 1, 2022 and December 31, 2022.
