TRANSPARENCY IN COVERAGE

LETTER TO EMPLOYEES 2022


AltaStaff is committed to providing our employees a competitive group health plan.

We know that consumer out-of-pocket spending on healthcare in the U.S. has risen

and will continue to grow at a rate of 9.9% for the next five years.

That is why we are pleased to inform you that as part of the Consolidated

Appropriations Act of 2021, United Healthcare must be transparent regarding the billing

rates for covered medical items and services of in-network providers (e.g., doctors and

hospitals) and out-of-network historical payments. This information will be published to

the Internet website of United Healthcare at www.transparency-in-coverage.uhc.com. It

can also be found on the AltaStaff website at https://www.altastaff.com/posters as well

as in the Benefitfirst portal under Resource Center . The website will be live on July 1,

2022.

This is just the first phase of this multi-phase implementation. By January 1, 2023, we

anticipate that prescription drug information will also be available for you to access.

With access to this information, you are likely to be in a better position than in the past,

to use your consumer skills to control your out-of-pocket spending on healthcare. You

will be able to evaluate your care options and improve your overall health navigation

experience, all while being able to anticipate the cost of care for the first time in your life.

For example, you now can shop for the most reasonably priced MRI, lab facility, or other

medical items and services, which may vary significantly in cost.

With 24-7 access to this data, we hope you feel empowered to make the best possible

decisions for your unique health needs.
