Just to clarify – is the dental premium shown per pay period or per month?

Will we be able to use our bene card for more than prescriptions next year? It takes so long to get reimbursed and there is no way to pay for glasses without using that card.

No – The Bene Card continues to be pharmacy only. Thanks – Your Benefits Team

I am dismayed that hearing aids are not covered under insurance, nor reimbursable as they once were. Mine will cost $4800 which is even more than the HSA covers. Are there any other payment options I'm not aware of?

Hearing aids were removed as an eligible expense under the MRA in 2013. To preserve the majority of MRA benefits, Mayo needed to find a way to protect the plan from ACA requirements that would have added significant administrative and plan expenses. These expenses were projected in the millions of dollars and would make the MRA too costly for Mayo to continue. Amending the MRA to make it a limited scope dental and vision plan was a way, under federal government guidance, that Mayo could remove the plan from the cost-prohibitive ACA requirements. Removing hearing aid devices from the MRA accomplished the goal of preserving the majority of the benefit. Please consider the cost-saving tools mentioned above to help with these expenses.

I would love to be able to use the Mayo Reimbursement Account (especially if the Employee+Spouse continues to increase), but can't since our medical insurance is the high-deductible Plan C. The MRA is like the dental/vision version of the HSA, right? Why can't we select both the HSA and the MRA?

Not exactly. Due to the depth required to fully answer this question regarding similarities and differences in benefits, employees will be best served by reviewing their Open Enrollment guide for this information and contacting the ESC with questions. Thanks – Your Benefits Team

Not so much a comment, but a question. Will the 2016 limit for the Single HSA remain at $3,350 and the over age 55 catch up remain at $1,000 for the Mayo basic Health Savings Account contributions?

Jump to this post

Yes – that is correct. Thanks – Your Benefits Team

I just received the packet last night, I thought the cost was going to be minimal for the health plans? I looks like an extra $14 a month, that's not minimal in my opinion. Am I misreading the information?

There will be no increase in health plan premiums in 2016. Thanks – Your Benefits Team
