SUmmary of Benefits and Coverage
IMPORTANT: Availability of Summary Health Information
As a retired employee, the health benefits available to you represent a significant component of your compensation package. They also provide important protection for you and your family in the case of illness or injury.
Choosing a health coverage option is an important decision. To help you make an informed choice, your plan makes available a Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC), which summarizes important information about any health coverage option in a standard format, to help you compare across options. The uniform Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC) provision of the Affordable Care Act requires all insurers and group health plans to provide consumers with an SBC to describe key plan features in a mandated format, including limitations and exclusions. The provision also requires that consumers have access to a uniform glossary of terms commonly used in health care coverage.
The details listed in the SBC for UT SELECT PPO or Out-of-Area coverage will be updated for the 2014-2015 plan year by July 15, 2014. To review an SBC for UT SELECT PPO or Out-of-Area coverage at any time, visit the website www.bcbstx.com/ut. You can view the glossary at www.dol.gov/ebsa/pdf/SBCUniformGlossary.pdf. To request a copy of these documents free of charge, you may call the SBC hotline at (855) 756-4448.
