Telemedicine Available to State Group Health Subscribers

Have you ever wished you could seek basic medical care from the comfort of your own home?
If so, the telemedicine/telehealth (used interchangeably) services added to the State Group Health Insurance Program effective January 1, 2019 may allow you to do so.

What is telemedicine/telehealth?
The remote diagnosis and treatment of patients by means of electronic communication. This means that for non-emergent medical care, you may be able to access care through video chat or a virtual house call. Through telemedicine, a doctor may be able to recommend treatment, prescribe medication, refer you to a specialist or tell you, based on your symptoms, if you should see a doctor in-person. Note: These services vary among the carriers in the State Group Health Insurance Program.

Why should you consider telemedicine services?
With telemedicine services, you may receive care quicker and it may be more convenient than going to your doctor’s office or to urgent care. They are also typically less expensive than an office visit or urgent care visit.

How will your telemedicine/telehealth service be covered by your State Group Health Insurance?
How the service is covered will depend on which plan design you are enrolled in.

  • Health Plan: If you are enrolled in this plan, telemedicine services are covered at 100%.
  • High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP): If you are enrolled in the HDHP, you will need to meet your deductible first, then these services will be covered at 100%. This is necessary in order to comply with Health Savings Account (HSA) eligibility requirements as well as the coverage mandates under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

How can you obtain additional information regarding telemedicine services?
Generally, health plans offer telemedicine services through their online portals. If you’re unable to find telemedicine information through your health insurance plans online portal, contact your health insurance plan directly by calling the tollfree number on your health plan ID card.

Updated Income Continuation Insurance Premiums Effective February 1, 2019

Income Continuation Insurance (ICI) premiums are updated annually on February 1. Updated premiums for University Staff (paid bi-weekly) will be reflected on the February 14, 2019 paycheck. Updated ICI premiums for Faculty/Academic Staff/Limited Appointees (paid monthly) will be reflected on the March 1, 2019 paycheck.

If you are currently enrolled in the ICI program, visit the ICI Premium Notice web page for your personalized updated premium amount. Current enrollees were sent an email January 18 directing them to this customized web page.

Several factors determine your premium amount:

  • For University Staff: the ICI premium is based on 2018 earnings reported to the Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS), sick leave balance/usage as of December 22, 2018 and current ICI category.
  • For Faculty/Academic Staff/Limited Appointees: the ICI premium is based on 2018 WRS-reported earnings and the selected ICI elimination period.

Please note: The ICI annual premium update effective February 1 is based on 2018 earnings and does not reflect any enrollments made during the ICI Deferred Enrollment period which began in January and ends March 1, 2019. Employees who are eligible to participate in the ICI Deferred Enrollment period received notification about their opportunity via an email sent January 19.

A complete list of ICI premiums and plan information is available on the ICI plan page. If you have questions, contact your human resources office.

The Income Continuation Insurance (ICI) program is an ‘income replacement’ benefit plan that replaces up to 75% of your gross salary if you are unable to work due to a short or long-term disability.

If you are not currently enrolled in ICI, you may be able to enroll during the Annual ICI Deferred Enrollment opportunity through March 1, 2019. If you are currently enrolled in the ICI plan and have Standard ICI coverage, you may be eligible for Supplemental ICI coverage. Eligible employees were notified by email on January 18 from the UW System HR (uwsystemhr@uwsa.edu) email address.

Please see the Income Continuation Insurance section of the UW System Employee Benefits website for more information regarding eligibility and income continuation insurance benefits.

To apply for coverage through the Deferred Enrollment opportunity, you must complete an Income Continuation Insurance Application (ET-2307) and return it to your human resources office on or before March 1, 2019. ICI coverage elected through deferred enrollment will be effective April 1, 2019.

W-2 Forms (Wage and Tax Statements) Now Available Online

The 2018 W-2 Forms (Wage and Tax Statements) are now available online.  Employees who did not elect ‘electronic consent only’ by January 11, 2019 will also receive a paper copy of the W-2 mailed to them via U.S. mail by January 31, 2019.

View and Print the 2018 W-2-Form: View/print 2018 W-2 Form

  1. To access your W-2 Form online, you must be connected to a University of Wisconsin network either directly or through VPN.
  2. Log into the MyUW portal for UW System institutions or for UW-Madison.
  3. On the Payroll Information tile click the Tax Statements button.
  4. On the Tax Statements page, click the red View 2018 W-2 button.
  5. Before accessing your W-2 Form, you will be required to:
    • Enter the last 4 digits of your Social Security Number
    • Enter your date of birth
    • Check the ‘I agree’ box and click SAVE
    • Click the Next button in the upper right corner. The next button will not appear until the information you have entered is verified by the system.
  6. Your 2018 W-2 Form includes your Social Security number. Use caution when printing your W-2 in a ‘public’ environment. Do not send your W-2 Form via email.
  7. Once you have viewed/printed your W-2, close your browser before exiting the page.

Important: If the values you enter in the identify fields do not match those found in the HR system, you will receive an error message. Please contact your HR/Payroll office to validate these fields. You will have three attempts before a 1 hour lockout occurs, and your page is disabled. After 6 unsuccessful attempts, you will be hard-locked out of the system, and you will need to contact your IT helpdesk for assistance.

If you experience an issue viewing your W-2 Form, see help with pop-up blockers. To view and print 2017 W-2 Forms (or earlier years), see: View/print 2017 W-2 Forms 2017 (or earlier years)

Availability of Other Tax Forms (1095-C, 1042-S, Fellowship/Scholarship Letter)
Some employees will also receive additional tax forms from the University (1095-C, 1042-S, Fellowship/Scholarship Letter). The 1095-C Form will be available online in late January. Employees who did not elect ‘electronic consent only’ by January 11, 2019 will also receive a paper copy of the 1095-C Form mailed to them via U.S. mail by January 31, 2019.

The 1042-S Forms will be available online in the MyUW portal in March. Employees who have chosen electronic delivery through the Glacier System may have access to their forms earlier; others will have them mailed to their home address. The Fellowship Letter is typically available in February.

Filing Your Taxes
Employees should use their W-2 Form, not their final 2018 earnings statement, to file taxes. Some employees have had adjustments made to their 2018 taxable earnings since the last 2018 payroll was paid. These employees may have an additional earnings statement generated reflecting these adjustments. These adjustments will already be reflected on the W-2 Form that the employee receives.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will begin accepting returns on January 29, 2019 for the 2018 tax filing season. Employees may want to consider filing their return as soon as all tax forms are received to minimize the chance of a fraudulent return being processed using their Social Security number, or Individual Tax Payer Identification number. More information is available on the IRS website.

Saving 1% More

Many financial planners recommend that you should be saving 15% of your annual income for retirement - are you?

If you are, great!

If not, 15% may seem a little intimidating, but don't worry, there are easy ways you can begin increasing how much you save for retirement without breaking the bank. Consider increasing your UW Tax-Sheltered Annuity (TSA) 403(b) contribution by 1%. With this increase you may hardly notice a change in your take-home pay, BUT it could translate to tens of thousands of dollars to use in retirement (depending on future market values).

If you are eligible, your Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) benefit is a great tool in saving for retirement, but contributing to the UW TSA can also help.

If you are already contributing to the UW TSA and want to see how you are doing in saving for retirement, sign up for an individual counseling session with your provider. You can do this by visiting Counseling Sessions under the Education section of the UW TSA website.

If you are not currently contributing to the UW TSA Program, there is no time like the present to enroll! Visit the UW Tax-Sheltered Annuity (TSA) 403(b) website for information on the plan and on how to enroll.

2019 Benefits ID Cards

State Group Health Insurance Plans
Health insurance plan ID cards are typically sent by health insurance carriers to participants by the end of December for enrollments that occurred during the Annual Benefits Enrollment (ABE) in October. The ID cards are effective January 1, 2019. Present your new ID card at all appointments after January 1, 2019. Remember, before seeing a health care provider in 2019, check to make sure they are in-network by visiting your health plan's online provider directory.

The following employees will receive health insurance ID cards for 2019:

  • Employees who chose a different health plan: Employees who chose a different health plan design or a different health insurance carrier during the Annual Benefits Enrollment (ABE) period will receive a new ID card.
  • Employees who chose the same health plan: Employees who chose the same health plan design with the same health insurance carrier during the Annual Benefits Enrollment (ABE) period will typically only receive a new ID card if they added or removed dependents.

Pharmacy Benefits
Newly enrolled employees in health insurance will also receive an ID card from Navitus for pharmacy benefits. Currently enrolled employees will only receive a new card if they added or removed dependents. If a change was made, employees can expect to receive their ID card in early January.

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA)
Newly enrolled employees in a Health Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA), Limited Purpose Flexible Spending Account (LPFSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA) will receive their debit card for these plans from TASC, the FSA & HSA plan administrator in early January. New enrollees can submit claims through the manual claims submission process until their debit card is received.

Employees who previously participated in these plans and already have a debit card may use the same card as previous years until the expiration date listed on the card. If the employee no longer has their FSA or HSA debit card from previous years, contact TASC at 844-786-3947 or 1customercare@tasconline.com to request a new card.

Dental Insurance
Newly enrolled employees in Uniform Dental through Delta Dental will receive an ID card. Currently enrolled employees in Uniform Dental with Delta Dental will only receive a new ID card if their level of coverage has changed (single to family, etc.). If a change was made, employees can expect to receive their ID cards late December.

All employees that enrolled in a supplemental dental plan for 2019 will receive an ID card from Delta Dental late December.

Vision Insurance
VSP, the vision insurance plan administrator, does not issue ID cards. Employees that are enrolled in vision for 2019 should notify their vision provider that they have VSP vision insurance when they schedule their vision appointment. The provider will then contact VSP to verify coverage.

Review Your Cards For Accuracy
Review your ID cards for accuracy. If you discover errors or if you do not receive your ID cards by mid-January, contact the benefit plan directly to request new ID cards.

After you have refreshed your memory on the benefits you elected for 2019, the remainder of this article will remind you of 2019 benefit plan changes.

Health Insurance
For 2019 there are minimal changes to the State Group Health Insurance Program.

  • Annual deductibles and out-of-pocket maximums will not change for 2019; however, they were reset at the beginning of the new plan year, January 1, 2019.
  • Employees enrolled in the State Group Health Insurance Program and their covered spouses and dependents must select a primary care provider (PCP).

Supplemental Dental Benefits
Delta Dental is administering the supplemental dental plans in 2019. Two plans are available:

2019 Tax-Sheltered Annuity and Wisconsin Deferred Compensation Limits

The IRS recently announced the 2019 contribution limits. These contribution limits apply to the UW Tax-Sheltered Annuity (TSA) 403(b) Program and the Wisconsin Deferred Compensation (WDC) 457 Program.

In 2019, employees may contribute a basic maximum of $19,000 to the TSA Program. Employees age 50 and over can contribute an additional $6,000 for a total of $25,000. These same limits apply to WDC. Employees can contribute the maximum to both programs for a total of $38,000 (under age 50) or $50,000 (age 50 or older).

If you have 15 years or more of service with the UW and have contributed less than an average of $5,000 per year over your UW employment, you may have an additional "catch-up" opportunity with the TSA Program. Contact your human resources office for more information.

Both pre-tax and Roth (after-tax) contributions count towards the annual limits. Note: Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) are a type of retirement account separate from the TSA and WDC Programs and have separate limits.

To change your TSA deduction for 2019 or enroll in the program, submit your TSA Salary Reduction Agreement to your human resources office in early December. If you are enrolling for the first time, set up your account with the provider(s) of your choice either online, by EZ Enrollment form, or via paper application prior to submitting your Salary Reduction Agreement. Clearly mark the form as calendar year 2019.

For questions on the TSA program go to the TSA website - and don’t hesitate to use ALEX, a personalized online benefits counselor. You may also contact your human resources office with questions on your benefit plans.

To change your WDC contribution call the WDC office at 1-877-457-9327 or access your account at the WDC website. The WDC website also has information about enrolling in the program. WDC changes must be made with Empower, the third-party WDC plan administrator, in early December 2018, so that there is adequate time to electronically send the information to the UW Service Center.

Reminder: Substantiate 2018 Flexible Spending Account Claims Timely

Employees currently enrolled in a Health Care or Limited Purpose Flexible Spending Account (FSA) for the 2018 plan year are reminded to provide documentation as required for FSA claims.

If you participated in a FSA for the 2018 plan year, review your account at https://partners.tasconline.com/ETFEmployee to see if you have any claims that require documentation (referred to as unsubstantiated claims).

Under Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regulations, FSAs are a pre-tax benefit, and all payments from a Health Care or Limited Purpose FSA may require third party documentation (substantiation) unless the claim is automatically substantiated. If requested by TASC, you are REQUIRED to provide documentation to substantiate claims paid with the TASC debit card. This ensures the debit card was used for IRS approved items/services within the allowed time-frame.

Failure to provide documentation to TASC when requested may require repayment by the employee for any unsubstantiated payments. Repayment is done by deducting money from the employee's paycheck on an after-tax basis until repayment is complete. Claims should be substantiated timely to avoid repayment.

The repayment process for 2018 unsubstantiated claims has begun. Affected employees will see deductions beginning with the January 31 paycheck (biweekly paid employees) and the February 1 paycheck (monthly paid employees), continuing through the end of March 2019. Additional information regarding this process may be found here.

Substantiation information can be found in the ERA Participant Guide. If you have questions, contact TASC at 1customercare@tasconline.com or 1-844-786-3974.
