Healthcare

What you pay for services.

First, use JetBlue dollars.

Here’s how you get dollars into your account to use toward eligible expenses.

Green Plan
PPO w/HRA
Blue Plan
PPO w/HSA
JetBlue contributes:

Seed dollars to start (prorated for new enrollees)

$400 (individual)

$800 (family)

$400 (individual)

$800 (family)

Healthy Rewards dollars

$400 (individual)

$800 (family)

$400 (individual)

$800 (family)

Enhanced Care Management credit
(if qualified)

$250 (individual)

$500 (family)

$250 (individual)

$500 (family)

Your pre-tax contributions:

Annually

You can contribute up to $2,650 in a Healthcare FSA

You can contribute up to $3,450 (individual) / $6,900 (family) in your HSA

Account dollars pay:

HRA: eligible healthcare expenses

FSA: eligible healthcare expenses

HSA: Eligible healthcare expenses now; future retiree healthcare expenses

Next, do some easy math.

It may seem like you’re paying more for healthcare services, until you see the “total cost” picture. Here’s how your “starting deductible” gets reduced by JetBlue dollars.
This example uses the Green Plan (PPO w/HRA) for a single Crewmember…

First, you pay your payroll deduction.

You pay $55.50/semi-monthly
(non-tobacco rate)

Then, you’re responsible for 100% of the deductible. But, it can be offset by JetBlue money!

Your starting deductible

$1,300

JetBlue dollars add up to MOST of your $1,300 “starting deductible,” so your actual deductible is much less!

 

JetBlue gives you …

– $400

(maximum seed dollars)

– $400

(Healthy Rewards you earn)

After JetBlue contributions and rewards are subtracted, this is the typical best-case deductible for a single Crewmember.

 

= $500

 

NOTE: Earn an additional $250 ($500 family) by working with a BlueCarpet nurse to care for an ongoing condition — further reducing the deductible you are responsible for to $150.

Then, pay for healthcare services.

Here are the details on what you pay under each option.

IMPORTANT:

  • A true emergency is an immediate risk to health, which requires urgent intervention to prevent the worsening of a life threat.
  • Pre-authorization is required for services such as bariatric surgery, home health care and certain out-of-network services — be sure to check with your medical plan provider for the complete list.
  • Out-of-Network medical expenses are paid based on the Maximum Allowed Amount (MAA).
  • Deductible and out-of-pocket maximum do not include pre-authorization penalties.
