Changes to PPO1, PPO2 and PPO3
The cost of medical and prescription drug claims to DICK’S Sporting Goods rose dramatically in 2017, so we are making some changes to our medical plan offerings for 2018. See the 2018 Benefits Plan Summary for the updates that include slight increases in deductibles, copays and coinsurance. You can help to keep costs low for yourself and for DICK’S Sporting Goods by staying in-network, shopping for the highest quality, lowest cost providers and making your health a priority by getting an annual physical, preventive screenings and living a healthier lifestyle.

New Premium rates
The cost of health care continues to rise each year. That means the amount deducted from your pay will increase for 2018. There’s no difference in premium cost between the Aetna and the Highmark BCBS network (for example, the premium for PPO1 is the same whether you choose the Aetna or Highmark BCBS network.)
Check to make sure your prescription is covered in 2018
If you enroll in any of our medical plans, Express Scripts will provide your prescription drug benefits. This means:
You’ll get an ID card from Express Scripts that you’ll use only for prescriptions.
There will be only one formulary (the list of generic and brand-name drugs covered by your pharmacy benefits). That’s important if you switch medical plans in the future.
Express Scripts will make sure you’re getting the most effective and safe medications for your condition. They’ll contact you or your doctor if they see something that requires attention.
To make sure your local pharmacy is part of the Express Scripts network and to see if your medication is on the formulary, visit the Express Scripts website.

Express Scripts offers savings at thousands of participating retail pharmacies throughout the country and through mail order.

Tax Form 1095-C
As required by the Affordable Care Act (ACA), if you are enrolled in a DICK’S Sporting Goods medical plan, you will receive a copy of IRS Form 1095-C. The form will be mailed in January 2018. It includes information you will need for filing your 2017 income taxes.
