*Assume that the in-network providers listed above are NOT in the Emory Provider Network (EPN) unless otherwise stated.

Suppose Jill selected the Emory HSA Plan (individual, no spouse or family members covered). She also opted into the additional vision plan and the Aetna traditional dental plan (PPO).

1. Calculate Jill's annual premium for medical coverage. Assume she works at least 30 hours per week.

2. Calculate Jill's annual premium for vision

3. Calculate Jill's annual premium for dental.

4. Calculate Jill's out of pocket costs for the year (use the back of this sheet to show your work)
