Medical Coverage

Genesis Energy’s heath program, administered by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX), offers two plan choices: the Choice Plus PPO and the Choice Saver HSA. The primary difference between the two options is how you pay for your health care expenses. The Choice Plus PPO and the Choice Saver HSA have different monthly premiums, deductibles and out-of-pocket maximum limits. Both plans offer embedded prescription drug coverage. Please review your BenefitsConnections Enrollment Guide for monthly premiums.

Your choices for medical plan coverage are the following:

  • Choice Plus PPO offers traditional medical and prescription drug coverage. Per pay period premiums are higher, but the deductibles and coinsurance are lower, meaning more of your bill is covered by the plan up-front when you need health care.
  • Choice Saver HSA offers a high deductible health plan and prescription drug coverage that can be paired with a health savings account. Per pay period premiums are lower, but the higher deductibles and coinsurance mean you will pay more money up-front when you need health care.


Please review the information below when considering the options.

Frequently Asked Questions


One feature that makes the Choice Saver HSA special is that it is compatible with a health savings account. A health savings account – or HSA – is like a savings plan for your health care. An HSA is a personal account. It works like a regular bank account, but you don’t currently pay federal income taxes on money you deposit. Your savings grow from year to year. There is no use it or lose it rule. And you can take your money with you if you change plans or when you leave Genesis Energy. You can use an HSA to pay for qualified medical expenses now or at any point in the future – even in retirement. Be sure to do your research before you take action and enroll. The frequently asked questions link above contains a document that may answer many of your questions.
