SELF-INSURED: The ODAWT plan is defined as a self-insured plan that will allow participants to avoid some of the taxes, regulations and requirements of the Affordable Care Act. The plan began March 1, 2015. Typically, participants in a self-insured plan realize a 10 % savings compared to marketplace plans.
EMPLOYER PLAN: The ODAWT is an employer plan, which means offices that enroll in the plan will be required to offer insurance to all full-time employees (defined as those employees working 25-30 hours or more per week). Employees are allowed to decline the coverage by completing a waiver form. While no employer contribution is required, if an employer chooses to make a contribution it must be on a non-discrimination basis. Consult your CPA to design a structure that works best for your practice and adheres to all the rules.
CARRIER: The ODAWT has the same carrier (Medical Mutual of Ohio), the same networks of providers and hospitals, the same prescription coverage and same plans as the Society’s previous DCHCP health insurance program.
