2017 Second Opinion Requirement

Effective January 1, 2017, we request that you seek a second opinion through the Health Decision Support Program prior to receiving any of these four medical procedures (on a non-emergency basis): knee surgery, hip surgery, back surgery, spine surgery. If you decline to use the service for these four procedures, that’s your choice. But by doing so, you will be responsible for an additional $400 added to your total claim cost for the procedure, whether or not you’ve met the deductible. In 2017, this requirement will only apply to eligible employees enrolled in the Chevron Medical PPO Plan, the Chevron HDHP and the Chevron HDHP Basic.Learn more.

2017 Dental Cleaning Requirement (Dental PPO and Dental HMO only)

Effective January 1, 2017, we request that you take steps to protect your health and receive at least one preventive dental cleaning* between January 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017. Covered preventive dental services are 100 percent paid by your plan, with no deductible or copayment when you use a network provider. If you do not participate in this preventive care measure in 2017, you will pay $120 more for your annual dental plan premium in 2018. It’s still your choice to receive a cleaning or not, but if you choose to participate, you’ll save money in 2018 and you’ll be doing something good for your health. Learn more.

* For participants with dentures, receive at least one oral exam in lieu of a cleaning.

And remember, the second opinion service is available to seek a second opinion on any diagnosis you may be facing, not just for knee, hip, back and spine surgeries. Learn more.
