Your Health:

Medical

Introduction

Marathon Petroleum provides medical coverage to protect and promote your family’s health through the MPC Health Plan – a qualified plan that meets the standards of the Affordable Care Act and offers you a choice of two Preferred Provider Organization options. The Saver HSA and Classic options are both administered by Anthem BlueCross BlueShield (Anthem BCBS).

Saver HSA Option – Overview

The Saver HSA option is a “pay as you go” Health Plan option, and qualifies as a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). It has a lower premium, a higher deductible and the opportunity to open a portable Health Savings Account (HSA) that offers triple-tax advantages.

With this option, your annual deductible includes both medical and prescription drug expenses, and you pay all your medical and prescription drug costs in until you reach that amount (with the exception of preventive care and certain generic preventive medications). After you meet the annual deductible, the Saver HSA option pays 80% of your eligible expenses for care received in-network. If you reach the out-of-pocket maximum, the Health Plan will pay 100% of your medical and prescription drug costs.

To help offset the higher deductibles in the Saver HSA option, the Company will contribute $350 for Employee Only coverage or $700 for Employee + Dependents coverage to a Health Savings Account when you enroll in this option and open an account. See the “Health Savings Account (HSA)” section for details.

2019

There will be no plan changes to the Saver HSA option for 2019. Marathon Petroleum’s contribution to the Health Savings Account will increase from $350 to $500 for Employee Only coverage, and from $700 to $1000 for Employee + Dependent(s) coverage.

Employees who enroll in the Saver HSA in 2019 will also be eligible to participate in a Limited Purpose Flexible Spending Account. This account is limited to paying for eligible dental and vision expenses. As with the Flexible Spending Account, you can elect from $120 to $2,650 for your anticipated dental and/or vision expenses in 2019. Eligible expenses must be incurred by December 31, 2019 and claims must be summited by May 31, 2020. You may carry over up to $500 into 2020. Once you have met your deductible, it can also be used for medical and prescription drug expenses. But first, make sure you let PayFlex know you met your deductible. You will receive a debit card, pre-loaded with the amount of your annual election. The same Flexible Spending Account expense deadlines apply.

Classic Option – Overview

The Classic option is a “pay up-front” option, with a higher monthly contribution in exchange for lower annual deductibles and out-of-pocket maximums. This option also includes copays instead of coinsurance for certain services such as office visits and prescription drugs.

After the annual deductible is met, the Classic option pays 80% of eligible expenses for health care received in-network. With family coverage, until the family deductible is met, each covered family member must meet the individual deductible before coinsurance begins for his/her medical care. However, regardless of whether you have met your deductible, you will only be responsible for copays for in-network doctor visits. With the Classic option, prescription drugs have copays. Retail drugs are subject to a smaller, separate deductible before copays begin.

If you select the Classic option or waive coverage under the Health Plan, you are also eligible for a Health Care Flexible Spending Account (HCFSA), wherein you can set aside pre-tax dollars from your pay to help cover your family’s health care expenses. See the “Health Care Flexible Spending Account (HCFSA)” section for details.

2019

There will be no plan changes to the Classic option for 2019; however the Health Plan contributions will increase.

Key Health Plan Option Features

The primary difference between the two options is how you pay for your health care expenses, so the Saver HSA and Classic options will have different premiums, deductibles and out-of-pocket maximum limits. The following chart offers a side-by-side comparison of the Saver HSA and Classic options.

Health Plan Information for Retirees

Retirees under age 65 are eligible for the same Health Plan options as MPC active employees. Monthly contributions depend on your accrued percentage of the Company subsidy, based on your years of service.

Retirees age 65 and over can receive an annual Company subsidy toward the cost of individual Medicare-related plans available through Towers Watson’s Via Benefits. If you’re eligible for the subsidy, you will receive an enrollment guide from Via Benefits similar to the sample below.

* OneExchange has changed their name to Via Benefits. They still provide the same services to our post-65 retirees and their dependents.
