What’s New for 2019
Know the facts about your 2019 benefits programs and learn how each gives you the power to take your health, wealth, and life balance to the next level.
Here’s what you can expect beginning January 1, 2019:
No Plan Changes
The plans you will choose for 2019 are not changing. We will continue to have the same benefits plans and options.
Equifax HSA Contribution Will Be Discontinued
The company contribution to the HSA is being discontinued. If you enroll in CHDP 20 and CDHP 30, you can continue to contribute to an HSA on pre-tax basis in 2019 — up to $3,500 with individual coverage or up to $7,000 with family coverage. If you are age 55 or older, you may contribute an additional $1,000.
New Tiered Medical Plan Premiums
Beginning in 2019, we’re adopting tiered premiums for our medical plans. This means the amount you pay out of each paycheck for your medical plan coverage will be based on your annual base salary as of October 1, 2018. Your per-paycheck cost is available in Workday.
To help each of us get better outcomes from the health care we receive and to get better returns from our investment in health care, we will be introducing new resources to help you better understand your options, spend more wisely, and make the best-informed decisions possible regarding your family’s health. We’ll be introducing new partnerships and programs to supplement our medical plans with more knowledge and services. Watch for more information throughout 2019.
Cost Change for MDLIVE and Amwell
Maximum costs for our two on-demand, telehealth doctor visit services are increasingly slight in 2019 for participants in either of the CDHP options. MDLIVE maximum cost will increase from $42 to $45. Amwell maximum cost will increase from $42 to $49.
For participants of the PPO plan, the PCP visit copay will continue to apply.
