Savings Plan

Your insurance needs are as unique as you are. You may meet your deductible each year, or maybe you can’t remember the last time you saw a doctor. The Savings Plan is one of two State Health Plan options, and has lower premiums and higher deductibles. Features of the Savings Plan include:

  • Lower premiums. The Savings Plan is a high deductible plan. This means you save money with lower premiums, and you take greater responsibility for your health care costs through a higher annual deductible.
  • Copayments. There are no copayments for services. Instead, you pay the full allowed amount for covered benefits until you meet your deductible.
  • Health Savings Account. A Health Savings Account, or HSA, allows you to set aside pretax money every year for eligible medical expenses. Learn more about an HSA on the MoneyPlus web page.
