What's New for 2020

Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug (MA-PD) Plans 

At the direction of Governor DeSantis, the Division of State Group Insurance selected three qualified Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plans (MA-PDs). A MA-PD is a Medicare Advantage plan that includes Part A (hospitalization coverage), Part B (medical coverage), and Part D (prescription drug coverage). If you are a Medicare-eligible retiree currently enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B and are currently enrolled in a State Group Insurance health plan, check out these new plans by visiting the myBenefits website. Selecting one of these MA-PD plans is optional. 

HSA Contribution & Coverage Limits for 2020

The IRS has announced the 2020 contribution and expense limits for Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) and High Deductible Health Plans (HDHPs). Look for this updated information in your 2020 Open Enrollment materials.

Health Savings Account (HSA) Annual Maximum Contribution Amount for 2020
Individual $3,550 (increase of $50)
Family $7,100 (increase of $100)
High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) Annual Maximum Out-of-Pocket Limit
