UnitedHealthcare HDHP with HSA

When you choose the UnitedHealthcare HDHP with HSA, you choose to take control of your healthcare spending. Best of all, you get a personal Health Savings Account (HSA) with this plan—a tax-advantaged savings account that allows you to budget for healthcare expenses and save for the future. Ultimately, you get to decide when and where you spend your healthcare dollars.

How the UnitedHealthcare HDHP with HSA works

The UnitedHealthcare HDHP with HSA has two parts:

  1. A medical plan. The rich coverage provided under the plan has an annual deductible, which is offset by Nutanix contributions to your HSA. After you meet the deductible, you pay 10% for most in-network services and 30% if you seek out-of-network care—a lower-cost share for out-of-network coverage than the UnitedHealthcare POS plan. This plan uses the same network of doctors as the UnitedHealthcare POS plan. Unlike our other medical plans, this plan doesn’t have visit limits for physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and nutritionist visits.
  2. A Health Savings Account (HSA). This is a triple tax-advantaged savings account. You can use the money in the account to pay for eligible healthcare expenses for you and your eligible dependents now, or you can save the money for the future. Best of all, Nutanix jump-starts your savings each year by contributing $600 for employee-only coverage or $1,200 for family coverage, prorated when joining during the year. This contribution is made when you enroll in the plan so you can use the money to help pay for your deductible or save for the future. You can also make your own pretax contributions through payroll deductions, saving up to the IRS annual maximum limit. Any money you put in your HSA reduces your taxable income, earnings generated by the account aren’t taxed, and withdrawals aren’t taxed when used for qualified expenses. Learn more about the HSA.
Why choose the UnitedHealthcare HDHP with HSA?
  1. It comes with an 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.
  2. Free money from Nutanix. Each January, or when you enroll during the year, Nutanix puts in money to jump-start your savings ($600 for individual coverage and $1,200 for all other coverage levels). You can use this to help pay a portion of your deductible, use it toward coinsurance, or save for the future.
  3. You own the account. Your HSA funds belong to you, for good. That means you can keep your HSA funds from year to year, even if you change medical plans or leave Nutanix. You have the option to invest your balance, once you meet the minimum threshold of $1,000, in a variety of investment options.
  4. Same comprehensive coverage as other Nutanix plans. The UnitedHealthcare HDHP with HSA provides the same level of comprehensive and affordable coverage as the UnitedHealthcare POS and Kaiser Permanente HMO.
  5. Lower out-of-network cost share than the UnitedHealthcare POS. If you choose to use out-of-network providers, your out-of-pocket cost share is lower with the UnitedHealthcare HDHP with HSA than the UnitedHealthcare POS plan.

UnitedHealthcare POS

The UnitedHealthcare POS plan covers in-network services at 100%, and there’s no annual deductible. This means when you see in-network providers for eligible services, you pay no out-of-pocket costs. You only pay the deductible and coinsurance when you use out-of-network providers.

In-network preventive services are always 100% covered—you pay nothing.

How the UnitedHealthcare POS works

  • Choose any provider: You can choose any provider each time you receive care.
  • In-network providers: Keep in mind that you receive the highest benefits when you use in-network providers: doctors, labs, hospitals, clinics and pharmacies. You also pay no deductible when you use in-network providers for eligible services.
  • Out-of-network providers: If you go to out-of-network providers, you must first pay a deductible before the plan begins paying expenses. After you meet the deductible, you typically pay a percentage of the cost, called coinsurance, and the plan will pay the remaining amount (up to the maximum amount allowed by the plan). (You may be balance billed by the provider.)
  • Prescriptions: Prescriptions are covered the same way as other medical services. It’s your choice as to which pharmacy you use, but you pay less when you use in-network pharmacies. If you use out-of-network pharmacies, you must first pay the plan’s deductible before copays apply.

Balance Bill

Your medical provider may “balance bill” when the amount they charge is more than the amount the insurance company pays. When this happens, your medical provider may bill you for amounts over what the insurance company covers.

To find in-network providers and pharmacies, visit the UnitedHealthcare website.

Kaiser Permanente HMO

Kaiser Permanente HMO is available in California only. The Kaiser Permanente HMO plan provides coverage only when you receive care from providers within the HMO network. You must use in-network providers only—doctors, hospitals, labs, clinics and pharmacies. There’s no out-of-network coverage for this plan.

You don’t have an annual deductible, and most office visits are covered after a $20 copay. Preventive services are always fully covered—you pay nothing.

When you have a copay or incur an out-of-pocket expense for an eligible service, you can use money in your Kaiser HRA—an account that Nutanix funds for employees enrolled in the Kaiser Permanente HMO plan. The Kaiser HRA is available to be used for copays and coinsurance payments for you and your covered dependents.
