* In accordance with the Affordable Care Act, effective January 1, 2017, all MCTWF Actives Plan medical and prescription drug benefits combined in-network out-of-pocket costs are subject to calendar year limits. Out-of-pocket costs refer to deductibles, copay and coinsurance amounts (but not contribution payments, or out-of-network cost-sharing or balance bill payments). Once a calendar year limit is reached, coverage must be provided for the balance of the year without further out-of-pocket costs for in-network medical and prescription drug benefits. The limits for 2022 are $8,700 per individual and $17,400 per family member accumulations toward these statutory out-of-pocket cost limits are tracked on each MCTWF Explanation of Benefits (EOB) form and in each MCTWF Participant Portal account.
** The co-payments and/or coinsurance payments for these services apply toward the annual out-of-pocket maximum.

Eligibility for auto-related accidental injuries or illnesses under your MCTWF benefit package will be available only to the extent that claims resulting from the accident are in excess of the greater of (1) the required insurance coverage or other financial protection required under applicable state law, or (2) the benefit limits of any other insurance under which the individual is entitled to coverage. MCTWF will provide benefits pursuant to a signed MCTWF Assignment, Subrogation and Reimbursement Agreement, contingent upon the submission of proof that benefits have been exhausted through the auto carrier and/or other insurance available. MCTWF does not provide Qualified Health Coverage.
