  • Wellness Program Reimbursement Changes in Compliance with ACA
    This year we are continuing the out-of-pocket medical co-pays and deductibles, but some changes needed to be made to be in compliance with the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The ACA does not allow caps on medical payments and reimbursements. To be in compliance with the ACA, the Trustees have voted to pay $300 for any claim that is part of the Wellness Program, and $1 for any additional claim beyond. This will be retroactive from July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014. Please continue to save those receipts and EOB’s.  These changes are fully explained in the January newsletter. Please read about the changes and see a Trustee if you have any questions.
