BENEFITS: Plan Summaries, Rates, and Booklets

For the 2017-18 plan year, COCC will offer three traditional medical plans, one high-deductible HSA plan, three dental plans, and one vision plan.

Benefit Plans Summaries and Booklets are listed below to help make your decisions.

Check out our Plan Calculation Tool! It will help you to identify what your monthly premium may be depending on the choices you make. This tool is to help all active staff. Rates may differ for retirees and employees who work less than 1.0 FTE.

Synergy or PPO, what's the difference?

The Synergy and Summit plans are based on a coordinated care model (CCM) using the more focused Synergy and Summit networks. While a statewide PPO plan uses the wider Connexus network and does not connect you to a specific clinic to manage your care.

When you choose a PPO plan, you can have lower out-of-pocket costs when you use any provider practicing within a Connexus Medical Home, but you do not need to select one specific Medical Home to coordinate your care.  

The Synergy and Summit plans do require you to select a Medical Home within the network and see providers within that Medical Home for all primary care services. Both the PPO plans and the Synergy/Summit plans have out-of-network benefits available, but you will be responsible for higher out-of-pocket costs when using out-of-network providers (and, on the Synergy and Summit plans, when seeking primary care outside your selected Medical Home).

Another benefit to Synergy and Summit plans is that premium costs are typically lower for these plans than for PPO plans using the statewide Connexus network.

Pharmacy - Value Tier Medications

Value tier medications include commonly prescribed products used to treat chronic medical conditions and preserve health. A list of value tier medications is available here or on the website.

Find a Provider

Use the Find Care tool on the Moda website to find a physician, dentist, pharmacist, or clinic. Use "Search as a Guest".


If you are enrolled in Moda Evergreen Medical Plan (The new health savings account plan), you will need to maintain an active HSA account through HSA Bank using the College Group enrollment link. You are required to submit an HSA Employee Contribution Form to Human Resources when you first enroll in the Plan and at the start of each new plan year thereafter.

Please contact Human Resources for the group enrollment link.  


Healthy Futures is a voluntary wellness program available to all OEBB subscribers enrolled in an OEBB medical plan.   OEBB subscribers who choose to participate in Healthy Futures program will receive an incentive of a reduced deductible of $100 per person (up to $300 per family depending on plan selection and the number of individuals covered) if they enroll in Healthy Futures and complete an HRA between August 15 and October 15 and complete two healthy activities prior to the next Open Enrollment.

New for 2017-18: No More Spouse/Domestic Partner Requirement

Spouses and domestic partners no longer need to participate to earn the incentive. Only the benefits-eligible employee/retiree/COBRA member needs to participate to earn the incentive for all individuals covered on the OEBB medical plan.

If you complete the requirements of the Healthy Futures program within the designated time frames, effective October 1, 2017, your OEBB medical plan deductible will be reduced $100/person (up to a $300 value per family depending on plan selection and number of individuals covered)

Flexible Spending Account (FSA) FORMS AND INFORMATION

A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is a tax-free employee funded account used for unreimbursed health related expenses (doctor visit co-pay or co-insurance fees, dental and/or vision expenses, and prescription expenses) and dependent care expenses.

The maximum amount is $2600 for Health Related Expenses (HRE) and $5000 for Dependent Care Expenses (DCE). What if you don’t use it?  Any unused balance up to $500 will be carried into the next plan year (amounts over $500 will be forfeited). Funds are carried over approximately 15 days after the 90-day claim submission period ends, therefore mid-January.  You do not have to enroll in the FSA plan to have your remaining funds carry over.
