2017 Active Plan – At-a-Glance  

  • We are pleased to make yet again 2017 Health Savings Account (HSA’s) contribution of $1,000 (for single coverage) and $2,000 (for family coverage).  

  • The Conference will continue to partner with the United Methodist Credit Union for HSA accounts. At the above meetings you will be able to make sure your HSA account information is in order, whether you need to open one for the first time or reactivate one that previously closed.  

  • The maximum out of pocket costs will remain the same.  

  • We will remain with Aetna’s provider network and pharmaceutical program.  

  • The dental and vision plans will remain the same.  

  • Churches/salary-paying units will pay 90% of plan cost and employees 10% of plan cost.  

2017 Retiree Plan – At-a-Glance   

  • Retirees 65 and older will continue with the Humana Medicare Advantage program that has been in place since 2012.  

  • The medical deductible remains at $500 and the prescription deductible will remain at $200. 

  • The maximum out of pocket cost will remain at $2,000.  

  • The dental and vision plans will remain the same.
