Oncology Guidance for Anthem PPO and CDHP

Carrum Health, JPIA’s concierge and second opinion surgery partner, has expanded to offer oncology services. Oncology Guidance will provide those newly diagnosed with cancer with a registered oncology nurse to guide them through their journey for up to 48 months. In partnership with world-renowned cancer centers Memorial Sloan Kettering and City of Hope, an oncologist will review the diagnosis and treatment plan, consulting directly with the treating physician. This benefit is available for all types of cancer, excluding non-melanoma skin cancer. Oncology Guidance is provided at no cost, unless a CDHP member has not yet met the IRS required minimum deductible for HSA eligibility. In that case, Carrum will work with Anthem to ensure the minimum required deductible has been met collectively before providing 100% coverage. 

Breast Cancer Treatment for Anthem PPO and CDHP

Carrum Health's journey further into the oncology space has led to their partnership with the world-renowned City of Hope Cancer Center. Comprehensive treatment bundles include coordinated care, radiation, chemotherapy, and surgery. This benefit is available to participants with a first-time non-metastatic breast cancer diagnosis. Due to the need for repeat visits, participants must live within 60 miles of a City of Hope location in Southern California. Breast cancer treatment bundles through Carrum are provided at no cost. For CDHP participants, the same process used for Oncology Guidance will be applied to maintain HSA eligibility. See the Carrum Health Flyer for more information about this benefit.

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs)

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) designations must be made each year. If you would like to contribute to an FSA in 2023, you must make that election during Open Enrollment. The IRS has not yet announced the 2023 maximum annual contribution. The projected annual limit on salary reduction contributions for health care FSAs is $3,050. The annual limit for salary reduction contributions for dependent care FSAs is $5,000.  Both limits apply to calendar years. The maximum amount of funds in a Health Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA) that can be rolled over from one calendar year to the next is $610. Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts have a 2 ½ month grace period into the next year; receipts are due by 3/31.

Use pre-tax money for your co-pays on medical, dental, vision care, and prescription costs through a Flexible Spending Account. This includes deductibles, costs for alternative healthcare, and orthodontia. This benefit is now even easier to use with the availability of a debit card or direct deposit. The EZ mobile app by WageWorks/Health Equity is now available on your iphone or Android smartphone. The mobile app lets you submit claims, snap photos of receipts, and manage your account from anywhere-it puts the WageWorks/Health Equity web portal in the palm of your hand.

Health Savings Account (HSA) for Anthem CDHP or Kaiser CDHP

Health Savings Account (HSA) deduction elections for 2023 should be made during Open Enrollment, as the deduction elected for the prior year will not continue without a completed form on file. Changes to your deduction amount can be made throughout the year. The 2023 maximum HSA contribution, for employer and employee contributions combined, will be $3,850/individual enrolled or $7,750/family enrolled. There is an additional $1,000/year catch-up contribution allowed for participants who will be age 55 or older at any point in 2023. Those enrolled in another plan, including Medicare, may not contribute to HSA. Learn more about Health Savings Accounts by reading these Frequently Asked Questions
