BCBSM will continue to be our medical provider for the 2022-2023 plan year for the PPO HSA 6350 plan option.
The PPO HSA is a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) which allows your o choose any provider when you need care. However, in exchange for a lower per-paycheck cost, you must satisfy a higher deductible that applies to almost all health care expenses, including those for prescription drugs.
All expenses are your responsibility until the deductible is reached, with the exception of preventive care, which is covered at 100% when you visit a physician in the network. Once the deductible is met, you are responsible for coinsurance for medical expenses and a copay for prescription drug expenses.
Enrolling in this plan allows you to contribute tax free dollars to a health savings account (HSA). Any dollars that you wish to contribute can be used towards any eligible medical, Rx, dental and vision expenses that you may incur while covered under the plan. See HSA section for additional details.
