Medical rates are increasing
Rates for all Cigna medical plans will increase an average of 3% in response to rising healthcare costs. However, the actual rate increase will depend on the coverage level you enroll in:
- Associate Only, Associate + Child(ren), and Associate + Family rates will have modest increases.
- Associate + Spouse/Domestic Partner rates will increase to be the same as Associate + Family.
The increase is based on actual higher healthcare costs and higher usage of medical benefits.
Contribute more to your HSA
If you enroll in the HSA Base Plan, you can contribute more to your Health Savings Account (HSA) for 2022, up to the IRS maximum contributions: $3,650 for Associate only, or $7,300 for Family.
If you’re age 55 or older, you can contribute an additional $1,000 in catch-up contributions each year.
Remember, it is your responsibility to ensure that your HSA contributions along with the company contributions do not exceed the IRS limits.
