* True family: If a plan is “true family,” both the employee + one and family plans begin to cost-share after the family deductible is met — even if only one person has all the claims. Once the family out-of-pocket maximum is met, the plan will pay 100%. If a plan is not “true family,” it begins to pay once an individual meets the individual deductible, even though you cover dependents. Once that person meets the individual out-of-pocket maximum, the plan will pay 100% for that person’s covered expenses.

icon Find your best match

The Mercer Marketplace 365+ website will clearly show the costs and coverage for each plan, making it easy to decide. And, if you answer a few simple questions, you’ll see which plan may be a “best match” for your needs and preferences.

iconConsider a supplemental plan

If you choose a higher-deductible plan to save on paycheck contributions, you can add extra protection for large or unexpected medical expenses through supplemental medical coverage, such as critical illness, accident, or hospital indemnity insurance.

$400 Deductible Plan

The $400 Deductible Plan offers lower out-of-pocket costs in exchange for higher contribution rates. With this plan, your costs are more predictable, but you’ll probably still have out-of-pocket expenses. You can see any provider you wish, but you will pay less when you stay in network.

How the $400 Deductible Plan Works

You pay the plan contribution rate from your paycheck to have coverage.

icon

Copay

You pay a small fee at the time of service for doctor visits and prescriptions.*

icon

Deductible

For care that doesn’t charge a copay, such as hospital services, you pay 100% of the costs until you meet the annual deductible.

icon

Coinsurance

After meeting the deductible, you and the plan share the cost of certain services, with the plan paying the majority.

icon

Out-of-pocket maximum

You’re protected by an annual limit on costs — the plan pays 100% of any further covered expenses for the rest of the year.

Keep in mind: You pay nothing for in-network preventive care – it’s covered in full.

*Your prescription costs do not count toward the deductible, but they do count toward the annual out-of-pocket maximum.

Use your $400 Deductible Plan wisely

Here are ways to make the most of your plan all year long.
  • Track your stats. Log in to the Blue Cross Blue Shield of MA website to see how much of your deductible you’ve met, review claims, and more.
  • Pair it with a Health Care FSA. If you enroll in the Health Care FSA, you can set aside before-tax dollars to help pay for your out-of-pocket costs. Keep in mind, the money in your FSA does not carry over to the next plan year; you must “use it or lose it.”
  • Be cost-conscious. Visit the Blue Cross Blue Shield of MA website to search for in-network providers and use the tools to compare costs for medical services.

$900 Deductible Plan

The $900 Deductible Plan offers slightly lower out-of-pocket costs in exchange for higher contribution rates. With this plan, your costs are more predictable, but you’ll probably still have out-of-pocket expenses. You can see any provider you wish, but you will pay less when you stay in network.

How the $900 Deductible Plan Works

You pay the plan contribution rate from your paycheck to have coverage.

icon

Prescriptions

You pay the coinsurance amount for prescriptions* (with a minimum and maximum cost per prescription type) without having to meet the annual deductible first.

icon

Deductible

For doctor’s office visits and hospital services, you pay 100% of the costs until you meet the annual deductible.

icon

*Your prescription costs do not count toward the deductible, but they do count toward the annual out-of-pocket maximum.

Use your $900 Deductible Plan wisely

Here are ways to make the most of your plan all year long.

  • Track your stats. Log in to the Blue Cross Blue Shield of MA website to see how much of your deductible you’ve met, review claims, and more.
  • Pair it with a Health Care FSA. If you enroll in the Health Care FSA you can set aside before-tax dollars to help pay for your out-of-pocket costs. Keep in mind, the money in your FSA does not carry over to the next plan year; you must “use it or lose it.”
  • Be cost-conscious. Visit the Blue Cross Blue Shield of MA website to search for in-network providers and use the tools to compare costs for medical services.

$1,850 and $2,850 Deductible Plans

The $1,850 and $2,850 Deductible Plans pair low-contribution rate, high-deductible coverage with a tax-free Health Savings Account (HSA) that helps you save up for future medical expenses. As an added bonus, Parexel will contribute to your HSA — $500 for employee-only coverage and $1,000 for all other coverage levels. Money in your HSA can be carried forward from year to year and is always yours to keep. You can see any provider you wish, but you will pay less when you stay in network.

How the $1,850 and $2,850 Deductible Plans work

You pay the plan contribution rate from your paycheck to have coverage.

icon

HSA

You can set aside tax-free money from your paycheck and receive company contributions to help cover your costs — now, or in the future.

icon

Deductible

You pay 100% of your medical and prescription costs until you meet the annual deductible.*

icon

Coinsurance

After meeting the deductible, you and the plan share the cost of covered medical care and prescriptions, with the plan paying the majority.

icon

Out-of-pocket maximum

You’re protected by an annual limit* on costs — the plan pays 100% of any further covered expenses for the rest of the year.

Keep in mind: You pay nothing for in-network preventive care – it’s covered in full.

* If you enroll in the $1,850 Deductible Plan or the $2,850 Deductible Plan with either employee + one or family coverage, the plan begins to cost-share after the family deductible is met — even if only one person has all the claims. Once the family out-of-pocket maximum is met, the plan will pay 100%.

Use your $1,850 or $2,850 Deductible Plan wisely

Here are ways to make the most of your plan all year long.

  • Track your stats. Log in to the Blue Cross Blue Shield of MA website to see how much of your deductible you’ve met, review claims, use helpful tools, and more. Likewise, keep tabs on your HSA by logging in to the Discovery Benefits website to view your balance, submit claims, and more.
  • Think about your costs. You pay lower contribution rates in exchange for assuming more financial responsibility when you receive care, so it’s smart to plan ahead. Visit the Blue Cross Blue Shield of MA website to search for in-network providers and use the tools to compare costs for medical services. Try to contribute enough to your HSA to cover your expected out-of-pocket costs, such as your annual deductible and coinsurance.
  • Change your contributions anytime. Adjust your contributions as necessary during the year to keep your savings on track with your anticipated expenses. Note: You can only spend HSA contributions that have actually been deposited into your account.
  • Look long term. You will never forfeit any money left in your HSA — it rolls over year after year. If you know about future expenses — or if you want to save for your health care costs in retirement — set aside a little extra each paycheck so your balance can grow over time.

Prescription drugs

When you enroll in a Parexel medical plan, you will automatically receive prescription drug coverage through Express Scripts.

Drug tiers

The cost of your prescription drugs under each medical plan depends on the tier of the medication:

  • Tier 1 drugs (most generics) contain the same active ingredients as their brand-name equivalents and meet the same federal standards for safety but typically cost significantly less.
  • Tier 2 (formulary) drugs are brand-name medications that are favored by a prescription plan based on drug effectiveness and cost.
  • Tier 3 (nonformulary) drugs are brand-name medications that are not on a prescription plan’s favored list (or formulary) based on drug effectiveness and cost. They may still be covered but may require prior authorization and cost more.

Mail order

If you regularly take medication to treat a chronic condition — such as an allergy, heart disease, high blood pressure, or diabetes — you can take advantage of the convenience and cost savings of using the mail order program or the new Smart90® program.

iconYou have a choice with the Smart90® program

With Smart90, you pay the same amount for a 90-day supply of maintenance medication at a CVS retail pharmacy as you do through the Express Scripts mail order pharmacy. Have your prescription delivered in the mail or pick it up at a local CVS retail pharmacy — it’s your choice!

Why use mail order?

  • Prescriptions are shipped to you for free — no waiting in line at the pharmacy
  • You save money with a reduced cost for a three-month supply.
  • You can set up automatic refills.

Why use Smart90?

  • You can receive a three-month supply through a local CVS retail pharmacy at the same cost as ordering through the mail order program.
  • You can save money and time by ordering a three-month supply at once.
  • Prescriptions are available for pick up in person at a local pharmacy.

Save money

The cost of prescription drugs is rising faster than many other health care services and supplies. But there are ways for you to save:

  • Ask your doctor about generic medications. Generic medications are generally just as effective as brand-name medications, but they typically cost between 30% and 75% less.
  • Use mail order or Smart90. For ongoing maintenance medications, the mail order prescription program and Smart90 will save you time and money.

Find a doctor

Seeing in-network providers saves you money. These doctors and health care professionals have agreed to discounted pricing for their services, and you’ll receive a higher level of benefits when using your in-network coverage. Here’s how to find doctors in your medical plan network.

  • Go to the Blue Cross Blue Shield of MA website.
  • Use the Find a Doctor & Estimate Costs purple quick link on the right.
  • Log in to be able to estimate costs while also looking for providers, or you can find a doctor without logging in.
  • If you search without logging in, select the PPO/EPO network.

Look up providers on Mercer Marketplace 365+

You can also use the Provider Lookup tool on the Mercer Marketplace 365+ website to easily find in-network doctors.

  • Follow the enrollment prompts until you get to the Choose your medical plan page.
  • Click on Find a Doctor or Hospital on the left side of the page. This launches the Provider Lookup tool.
  • Enter your ZIP code.
  • Enter your search criteria to find the type of provider you’re looking for.
  • You can narrow your results by choosing a specific distance, network, specialty, language, hospital affiliation, group affiliation, city, county, or gender. You can also choose to show only providers who are accepting new patients.
iconDon’t have a personal doctor? You should. Here’s why.
  • Better health. Getting the right health screenings each year can reduce your risk for many serious conditions. Preventive care is free, so there’s no excuse to skip it.
  • A healthier wallet. Having a doctor you can call helps you avoid costly trips to the emergency room and decide when you really need to see a specialist.
  • Peace of mind. Advice from someone you trust ... it means a lot when you’re healthy, but it’s even more important when you’re sick. Your personal doctor gets to know you and your health history and can help coordinate any care you need.

Well Connection

Well Connection is a convenient, low-cost Telehealth service where you can see a board-certified doctor through a video visit using a smartphone, tablet, app or computer.

All of the medical plans include this valuable coverage.

365 HUB

Imagine you’ve been told you need a medical procedure to treat a recently diagnosed condition. It’s hard to know where to start. How will you find the best doctor, and what will it cost? Where can you get a second opinion? What if you need help resolving a complicated bill or claim issues?
