Medical Care Plan

The College offers a PPO Health Plan and a Qualified High Deductible Health Plan with Highmark to eligible employees with the following features:

  • Benefits will be paid at a higher level when a participating physician and/or facility rather than at a non-participating provider who renders services.
  • Participating Provider Search (please ensure "BCBS PPO" is selected for network)
  • 100% after deductible.   Co-pays do not apply to the deductible. 
    • PPO Plan - $350 Individual/$700 Family Deductible
    • QHDHP - $1500 Individual/$3000 Family Deductible
  • There is also a mail in prescription program offered for medications you take on a regular, long-term basis. You will receive up to a 90 day supply at a reduced rate. Prescription Formulary can be accessed here.
  • The plan requires pre-certification 15 days prior to inpatient admission. More information is available here.

A 15% contribution by the employee is required for single coverage. For persons electing dependent coverage, the employee will contribute 20% of the monthly dependent premium. These premiums can be contributed on a pre-tax basis through a Section 125 Premium Conversion Plan. The monthly premium paid by the employee:

PPO - single coverage is $121.80, two-person coverage is $334.89, family coverage is $408.03

QHDHP- single coverage is $111.78, two-person coverage is $307.04, family coverage is $374.10.

Employees who choose to waive health plan participation can receive a $750 annual incentive upon receipt of proof of other non-Juniata health plan coverage. The incentive will be paid through payroll (taxed).
