9/14/2013
These Dynamics Have
Significant Impact
 Affordable Care Act

New fees, taxes, and charges

New payment systems will be established with
the goal to directly tie reimbursement to
performance – ie HCAHPS/value based
purchasing
 Borgess will experience a significant reduction
in Medicare payments

Conservative estimates indicate a $50 million
reduction between FY 2013 and FY 2017

BH 2014 Benefit Update
9/14/2013
These Dynamics Have
Significant Impact
 Symphony Deployment

Standardize/Align Human Resources, Finance,
and Supply Chain programs and services
throughout Ascension Health provide significant
opportunities for financial improvement through
reduced costs or gains in efficiencies.

This process will in some cases require Borgess
associates to change the way we work and
follow a different set of policies/programs.

BH 2014 Benefit Update

What does this all mean?
 Borgess will continually have pressure to do
more with less financial resources
 Borgess must be more efficient in all that it does
 Borgess must, where it can, leverage its
relationship within Ascension to use buying
power and market share to reduce its cost of
operations
 Borgess must ask all of its associates to
continue to work together as a team to meet
current and future challenges
6
BH 2014 Benefit Update
9/14/2013
And What Does This Mean for
Benefit Programs
 Symphony standardization/alignment of
programs/policies will have positive financial
implications, but will require associates to
demonstrate additional flexibility
 Associates need to be sure they understand
benefit program changes and ask questions
 Associates need to make educated choices
regarding healthcare benefits, develop health
habits, and be wise consumers.

Impact of Revised Holiday Policy
What happens if I am scheduled to work a holiday?

Associates will receive holiday pay up to their standard hours;

Instead, associates will have 90 days to utilize the hours for a
given holiday

Any holiday time not utilized after this 90 day period will be lost

If the rescheduled holiday hours are cancelled at the
supervisor’s request or utilizing the time causes the associate to
work over their standard hours – the hours will be paid the first
pay period following the 90 day window.

Holiday Example
Emily works July 4, 2014, she receives time and half for hours
worked but not holiday pay as she worked her standard hours
In order to receive her holiday, she needs to schedule an
additional day off between July 4th and October 4th
If Emily doesn’t schedule that additional day, she will lose that
holiday pay
If Emily’s supervisor can’t grant the time off for this day, Emily
will automatically receive her holiday after the 90 day window
expires

General Considerations

Borgess Health benefits programs are a central component of your
total rewards structure

Borgess Health benefits compromise approximately between 30% to
40% of the average Borgess associate’s total compensation

Health and wellness benefits are an important part of Borgess’ ability to
attract and retain associates

Healthcare expenses continue to trend higher

Most employers are sharing more of the cost of benefits with their
associates
