It's not too late to qualify for the premium discounts PEIA offered to offset the $14 premium increase for Plan Year 2012.
PEIA is offering two discounts: Improve Your Score ($10 monthly) and Advance Directive/Living Will ($4 monthly).
Improve Your ScoreActive members covered by PEIA PPB Plans A, B or C who report their Improve Your Score measures to PEIA are eligible for the $10 monthly discount. Improve Your Score is designed to make you and your doctor aware of individual health risks, including cholesterol, glucose or blood sugar, blood pressure and waist circumference. Participants receive a color-coded report card, which grades each of the measures as “green” (healthy), “yellow” (moderate risk) or “red” (high risk) while also providing an aggregate color-coded score. The premium discount is based upon participation and not the color-coded outcome.
Advance Directive/Living WillActive members covered by PEIA PPB Plans A, B or C and retirees covered by PEIA PPB Plan A, Humana or the Special Medicare Plan who notify PEIA by affidavit they have executed an Advance Directive/Living Will are eligible for the $4 monthly discount. An Advance Directive/Living Will is a legal document for making known your wishes about end-of-life care or what medical treatments you desire. It also can be referred to as a health care directive or physician’s directive. Please do not send PEIA a copy of your Advance Directive/Living Will.
The Health Plan HMO members are not eligible for either discount.
To check your status, log on to Manage My Benefits on PEIA's Web site, and go to "Policyholder" and "Coverage for the Next Plan Year." The status of your discounts appears after your insurance coverages.
