Note: Some benefits such as supplemental life insurance are subject to evidence of insurability. Additionally, specific eligibility rules apply for re-hired retirees. Please see Appendix (page 12). In most locations, you can choose from the Aetna Comprehensive Traditional Plan or Aetna Comprehensive High Deductible Plan. Both plans provide coverage for eligible medical services (like doctor’s office visits, specialist care or a hospital stay), coverage of preventative care at 100%, prescription drugs, mental health and substance abuse. Both plans use the same network, offer protection from unexpected health care expenses and allow the flexibility to use out-ofnetwork providers. The difference is in how you pay for care: Comprehensive Traditional Plan costs more from your paycheck in exchange for generally lower costs when you receive care. Comprehensive High Deductible Plan costs less from your paycheck. Instead, you generally pay more when receiving care. Depending on where you live, you may be eligible for the Kaiser Comprehensive Traditional Plan, HMSA Hawaii PPO Plan, Triple-S Salud Plan, Aetna Out-of-Area Plan or Aetna International Health Plan. If you are eligible for one of these plans, check your Health Plan Comparison Charts for more detailed information. Your Enrollment Worksheet shows the plans for which you are eligible.
