Medical Coverage

We realize that, for many employees, medical coverage is the most important benefit we offer. To ensure you have a good range of options, we will continue to offer three UMR medical plans for 2022.

In addition to these three medical plans, employees in California will continue to have the Kaiser HMO as a fourth option.

Employees residing in Hawaii are required to be covered under the available HMSA medical PPO Plan. Visit the Hawaii Employee Benefits page of this site to learn more about all the benefits available to residents of Hawaii.

Genesys offers the following medical coverage options to eligible U.S. employees. Click the links below to see the summary of benefits and coverage.

All medical options include prescription drug benefits. You do not need to make a separate prescription drug election.

Aggregate vs. Embedded Deductible

What’s the difference?
If you’re considering enrolling yourself and your covered dependents in one of the HDHP medical plans, it’s important that you understand how the family deductible works under each of the options. HDHP Plan 1 has an “aggregate” family deductible, while HDHP Plan 2 has an “embedded” plan deductible. Here’s what those terms mean:

Aggregate Family Deductible:
The full family deductible must be met before the plan begins to pay a portion of expenses for any covered family members.

Embedded Plan Deductible:
If one covered family member has enough expenses in a calendar year to meet the individual deductible, the plan will begin paying a portion of that family member’s expenses for the remainder of the year. You do not have to meet the full family deductible before the plan begins to pay.

What is a Deductible?
The amount you need to pay each year before the plan starts paying benefits. For example, if your deductible is $2,000, your plan won’t pay anything until you’ve paid $2,000 for covered healthcare services, unless copays apply.

Preventive Care

Your medical benefits provide essential preventive care to keep you and your covered family members healthy. These services are provided at no cost to you and bypass the deductible. Preventive Care refers to a medical service category covered completely by your Genesys benefits when you utilize an in-network provider. Preventive care services are designated by the Affordable Care Act, and include screenings such as annual wellness checkups, preventive mammograms, certain immunizations, and more. For women, certain products are also included on this list such, as breastfeeding supplies, contraceptives, and certain supplements for pregnancy.

How to find an in-network provider:
In order for these services to be covered at 100% by your medical insurance, you must visit an in-network provider. If you need assistance with this process, employees enrolled in one of the HDHP Plans or the PPO Plan can always reach out to your Genesys Care Coordinators by visiting genesyshealthplan.com or by calling 1-877-498-3041. Kaiser HMO plan participants may find a provider by clicking here. Be sure to select your region (northern or southern California). Once done, you can search using a map or enter your zip code to view Kaiser doctors and locations in your area.

Your 2022 Medical ID Cards

All employees who enroll in the either a HDHP or the PPO plan will receive a new Medical ID card, even if you do not update your elections. Please be on the lookout to receive this card in the mail by the end of this year.
