Missouri Western provides medical and prescription coverage through Blue Cross Blue Shield to all benefit eligible employees. Employees have a choice of two base plans or two buy-up plans. Missouri Western pays 100% of the employee’s premium of enrollment in one of the base plans. The High Deductible Health Plan includes participation in a Health savings Account (HSA).
Employees may choose to participate in the buy-up plan if they would like to increase their level of coverage, lower co-pays or deductibles, lower out-of-pocket expenses or expand the eligible provider network. The employee pays the difference between the base plan premium and the buy-up plan.
