ALEX is designed to explain each one of our health benefits, to provide you a side-by-side comparison of the plans, and to give you a best choice of plans based upon the information you enter on how you use the health benefits. We recommend letting him explain each plan offered and then answering his questions several times to see what benefit plans he recommends based upon your different answers. At the end of the questionnaire, he will give you a star by the one he feels is best for you and will show you what your payroll deduction total is for the year, as well as the amount you might spend on deductibles, co-payments, and portions of the billing. Then, he will show you the amount total you may have to pay in case of a catastrophe.
