The high-deductible health plan (HDHP) features lower premiums and the ability for members to make pre-tax contributions to a Health Savings Account (HSA). The HSA can be used to pay for eligible expenses—and when you reach age 65, the account can pay for post-retirement health expenses tax-free.
For specific details about this plan, review the HDHP Summary of Benefits and Benefit Description documents. Please note that this plan is only available to faculty, administrative/professional staff, non-union support staff, and internal post-docs.
Eligible costs incurred by any combination of members enrolled under the same family plan contribute to the family deductible; however, you must reach the family deductible before benefits are provided for any one member.
