    We know Alaska. We also know employees aren't static. Premera's employer plans give employees access to the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association's worldwide network of doctors and hospitals.


    Premera's qualified, high-deductible health plans with a health savings account (HSA) offer employees great basic coverage and a chance to save money and invest it for future IRS-approved medical expenses. HSA-qualified health plans allow employers to reduce their taxable income and receive lower monthly rates due to the higher annual plan deductibles.

    HSA plans help employees save in 3 major ways

    • Contributions are 100% tax deductible
    • Tax-free withdrawals for eligible healthcare expenses
    • Tax-free growth from interest earned and any earnings from investments

    Important reminder

    Premera no longer sends creditable coverage notices to members on behalf of groups with pharmacy plans prior to the Medicare annual open enrollment period.

    Employers will need to send the notifications required by the Medicare Modernization Act (MMA) to their Medicare-eligible employees and dependents. This act requires employers to let their Medicare-eligible employees and dependents know whether the prescription drug coverage in their employer health plan pays on average as much as the standard Medicare prescription drug coverage.

    Additional information is found at the following pages of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services:

    Submission of CMS Medicare Part D Disclosure Form

    Federal law requires employer groups to notify the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) if their prescription drug coverage for Medicare beneficiaries is creditable. CMS requires employer groups to submit a creditable coverage disclosure form each year or upon any change that could affect whether the drug coverage offered is creditable.

    Individual and Medicare Supplement

    We will continue to mail creditable coverage notices, as required under the MMA to individual and Medicare Supplement subscribers.

    Employers offering group health plans must comply with the Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) statute and regulations (the MSP laws). These laws establish Medicare as the secondary payer to group health plan coverage in certain instances of dual healthcare coverage. The MSP laws are complex and can be confusing even to a seasoned healthcare administrator.

    This section has been designed to provide a general overview of what your group clients need to know about MSP and related issues. It's purely informational, does not modify their policy or coverage in any way, and should not be construed as legal advice or opinion.
