Citi Benefits Handbook
Your Medical Options
Although each of the Citi medical plans offers comprehensive coverage, there are differences between the plans. The options include:
  • In-Network Only Plan — Offers coverage only for services from a smaller network of doctors and hospitals that deliver high-quality care at lower costs. If you get care outside the smaller network, it won't be covered (except in emergencies). You pay for most health care with a copay. The deductible is lower than Citi's other medical plan options, and paycheck deductions fall in between the Choice Plan and the High Deductible Plan with HSA.
  • Choice Plan — Offers the flexibility to choose any doctor or hospital when you need care. You'll pay less when you stay in-network. You pay higher paycheck deductions, but have a lower deductible than the High Deductible Plan with HSA. After meeting the deductible, you pay a percentage of costs through coinsurance.
  • High Deductible Plan with HSA — Similar to the Choice Plan, however, you have access to a Health Savings Account (HSA) that Citi contributes to, giving you long-term savings and investment opportunities, if there is not an immediate need to use the funds to pay the deductible and other health care expenses. You pay lower paycheck deductions but have a higher deductible than the other medical plan options available. After meeting the deductible, you pay a percentage of costs through coinsurance.

Note: Precertification is required for certain procedures and services in network (and out of network with the Choice Plan and High Deductible Plan with HSA). Penalties may apply if precertification is not obtained. Call your plan at the number listed on the back of your ID card for details.
For in-network covered expenses, the plans pay a percentage of discounted rates, while for out-of-network charges, the plans pay a percentage of the maximum allowed amount (MAA). See the Glossary section for a definition of MAA, which is sometimes referred to as "Recognized Charges." For out-of-network services, providers may charge you for medical expenses that exceed the MAA (referred to as "balance billing"), and you are responsible for those charges.
