Employee Cost Chart

The College offers full-time faculty, counselors and academic advisors health insurance through Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS). Under the Educators Health Alliance (EHA) BCBS PPO plan, employees receive comprehensive health benefits and may choose in-network or out-of-network providers with each health care situation.

Employees share in the cost of medical services by paying out-of-pocket costs including office visit and prescription co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance amounts.  The amount of cost share varies depending on the health care services and whether an in-network or out-of-network provider is utilized. To find an in-network PPO provider, go to nebraskablue.com and click "Find a Doctor"

New employees must enroll within 31 days of employment, and coverage becomes effective the first of the month following the beginning date of employment.

NOTE: Preventive services do not generally include services intended to treat an existing illness, injury or condition. Claims must include the appropriate diagnosis and procedure code to be paid at the 100% preventative benefits level.

Prescription drug mail order service

EHA BCBS participants can save money when filling prescriptions for "maintenance" medication used to treat chronic or long-term conditions; for example, blood pressure and diabetes.

If you use the PrimeMail order prescription drug program, you may be able to order up to a 180-day supply of covered medication at one time (if allowed by your prescription). The copay for a mail order prescription is 5 times the 30-day copay amount for 180-day supply.

IMPORTANT: If you are ordering a 180-day supply of a maintenance prescription medication through the PrimeMail order program, make sure your prescription is written for a 180-day supply, not including refills. The mail order prescription plan benefits are subject to a list of covered maintenance medications. For questions regarding the PrimeMail mail order prescription drug plan, call 1-877-357-7463.

tELEHEALTH SERVICES

You can get care when you need it in less than 10 minutes with telehealth services. Telehealth lets you video chat with a doctor at your convenience instead of having to travel to a doctor's office. Each visit costs less than emergency room, urgent care, or even in-office doctor visits. It's easy to use, affordable, private and secure. Telehealth is available 24/7, 365 days a year, over your computer, tablet or smart phone in all 50 states. It's perfect when your doctor's office is closed, you're too sick or busy to go in person, or when traveling. Behavioral health services are also available from licensed therapists.

Cash-in-Lieu

Full-time faculty, counselors and academic advisors may be eligible to receive cash-in-lieu of health insurance if the employee provides evidence of other creditable health insurance.
