INTRODUCTION

Princeton Theological Seminary has prepared this document to help you understand your medical and
prescription drug benefits. Please read it carefully. Your benefits are affected by certain limitations and
conditions designed to encourage you to be a wise consumer of health services and to use only those ser-
vices you need. Also, benefits are not provided for certain kinds of treatments or services, even if such
services are Medically Necessary and your Physician or other Health Care Provider recommends them.
As used in this document, the word year refers to the Plan Year, which is the 12-month period beginning
September 1 and ending August 31. Maximums and deductibles accumulate during the Plan Year. The
word Lifetime as used in this document refers to the period of time you or your eligible dependents par-
ticipate in the SHBP or any other plan sponsored by Princeton Theological Seminary for its students
and/or their eligible dependents.
The benefits described in this document are effective September 1, 2007. Terms printed in italics are de-
fined in the Section of this Plan Document entitled Definitions.
ELIGIBILITY AND PARTICIPATION

Student Eligibility

You are eligible to participate in the SHBP if you qualify as one of the following:
• A full-time or part-time student enrolled at Princeton Theological Seminary if enrollment occurs pur-
suant to the Annual Open Enrollment Period requirements for the SHBP. • Doctoral Teaching Fellows at Princeton Theological Seminary. • An international student, regardless of degree seeking status or credit hour enrollment, enrolled at
Dependent Eligibility

Your eligible dependents may participate in the SHBP, provided you are also currently enrolled. Eligible
dependents include:
• Your lawful spouse as defined by applicable state law;
• An unmarried children younger than age 19 (or an unmarried child who is a full-time student, through
age 23, and is attending an accredited college or university). • A Physically or Mentally Disabled Child of any age, provided the disability began before he or she reached age 19 and while covered under the SHBP. Coverage may continue for as long as the child remains disabled, unmarried and wholly dependent upon you for financial support (in accordance with Internal Revenue Service dependent guidelines). The SHBP may require you at any time to submit a Physician’s statement certifying the child’s Physical or Mental Disability. For purposes of the SHBP, child means: • A child who, before reaching the age of 18, was either adopted by you or placed in your home for • A stepchild living in your home; • A foster child if he or she lives with you and is dependent upon you for support and maintenance. • Your natural child, including any child for whom you are required to provide coverage under a court
If you and your spouse are both students, only one of you may cover a dependent child. In addition you
may not participate in the SHBP as both a student and as a dependent at the same time.
Student Enrollment

You will be billed for the SHBP unless you submit an approved waiver of coverage within the time pre-
scribed by Princeton Theological Seminary. To activate your coverage you must complete an enrollment
form for the SHBP. Your coverage will become effective as described in the Section of this Plan Docu-
ment entitled When Coverage Begins.
Dependent Enrollment

You must enroll your eligible dependents within 31 days of when you enroll at Princeton Theological
Seminary. If you do not have any eligible dependents at the time of initial enrollment, but acquire eligible
dependents at a later date, you must enroll the dependent(s) within 31 days of the date you acquire them.
You may also enroll your eligible dependents during the Annual Open Enrollment Period in September of
each year. Your coverage will become effective as described in the Section of this Plan Document entitled
When Coverage Begins.
Your newborn child is automatically covered at birth for 31 days. For coverage to continue beyond 31
days, you must notify the Plan Administrator (i.e., Office of Admissions and Financial Aid at Princeton
Theological Seminary) of the birth and pay any required contribution during the 31-day period following
the birth. If you fail to do so, coverage will terminate at the end of 31 days following your child’s birth.
Submission of claims for maternity expenses do not qualify as notification to the Plan Administrator.
The 31 day automatic coverage provision also applies to the adoption of a child. Coverage begins when
the adoption process is finalized and the adoption is effective.
Late Enrollments

If you waived coverage under the SHBP for yourself or your dependents because you or they had cover-
age under an employer-sponsored group health plan, and that coverage ends for any reason other than
non-payment of premium, you may enroll yourself and/or your dependents for coverage, provided you do
so within 31 days of the date coverage under the other plan ends.
If you do not enroll within the 31-day period, you will not be allowed to enroll in this plan until the next
Annual Open Enrollment Period.
There is a pro-rated fee schedule for late enrollments. Late enrollments are subject to all limitations, pro-
visions and requirements of the SHBP.
When Coverage Begins

Your coverage begins on the earlier of September 1 or the date you are required to be at Princeton Theo-
logical Seminary for a Seminary-sponsored activity. In no event will your coverage begin prior to August
1. Coverage for your dependents begins the later of the date your coverage begins or the first day a de-
pendent is legally acquired, if the dependent is properly enrolled. In the case of a late enrollment, cover-
age begins on the date coverage under the other health plan ends.
The effective date for Doctoral Teaching Fellows will be the date designated by PTS. The date may be
set to provide coverage not more than 60 days prior to the date the Doctoral Teaching Fellow will arrive
at PTS.
For students and their dependents who first enroll at the Seminary for the summer session, that typically
begins on or about July 1, these students and their dependents will be eligible for the SHBP for the re-
maining two months of coverage under the Plan Year then effect, subject to payment of the appropriate
SHBP costs.
When Coverage Ends

Your coverage will end on the earliest of the following dates:
• August 31st, if you waive coverage for the next Plan Year or you or your dependents are no longer
• The date your Extension of Benefits Due to Disability expires. • The first date of class for the spring semester for students who complete their degree requirements or otherwise withdraw from the Seminary during the fall semester or at the end of the fall semester. • You may apply for cancellation of your student coverage for the spring semester (prior to the end of the fall semester coverage period) if you provide evidence that you have attained coverage under an employer-sponsored group health insurance plan that meets all of the Seminary’s requirements for health insurance coverage. • The date you enter into the armed services of any country. A pro-rated refund of the SHBP cost will be provided. NO OTHER SHBP COST REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED.
Coverage for your dependents ends on the earliest of the following dates: • The date your coverage ends. • The date you cancel your dependent’s coverage. Dependent coverage may be canceled for the spring semester if the student waives the right for payment of future claims for the dependent. EXTENSION OF BENEFITS DUE TO TOTAL DISABILITY
If you or your dependent is Totally Disabled on the date coverage ends for the SHBP, SHBP coverage
will continue for such Injury or Sickness that is the underlying cause of the Total Disability as long as the
disability continues but not to exceed 90 days after the SHBP coverage terminates for you or your de-
pendent. The total payments made under the Extension of Benefits Due to Disability will not exceed the
Lifetime Maximum Benefit.
After the Extension of Benefits Due to Total Disability provision has been exhausted, all benefits under
the SHBP will cease, and under no circumstance will further benefits be provided by the SHBP.
Extension of Eligibility or Conversion Privilege

Except as specifically provided for the 2005-06 Plan Year, there is no Extension of Eligibility or Conver-
sion Privilege under the Student Health Benefits Plan provided by Princeton Theological Seminary.
MEDICAL BENEFITS

General Requirements

The SHBP imposes some conditions on benefits that are common to many health benefit plans. You will
get the most out of the benefit program by understanding the following requirements.
• The SHBP provides benefits only for Covered Expenses/Services that are Medically Necessary for the
treatment of a covered Sickness or Injury. Not all Medically Necessary services are covered. For ex-ample, Experimental/Investigational treatments are not covered. • The SHBP provides benefits only for Covered Expenses/Services that are equal to or less than the Usual and Customary Charge in the geographic area where services or supplies are provided. Any amounts that exceed the Usual and Customary Charge are not recognized by the SHBP for any pur-pose. In-Network Providers charge for their services to the SHBP at negotiated rates which are con-sidered to be the Usual and Customary Charge for those services. If you use an Out-of-Network pro-vider, you will be responsible for any amounts in excess of the Usual and Customary Charge. • The SHBP provides benefits only for Covered Expenses/Services rendered by a Physician or other
Princeton Area In-Network Benefits

Physicians and other Health Care Providers in the Princeton Area who have contracted with the SHBP to
provide specific medical services at negotiated prices or a Preferred Allowance are referred to collectively
as In-Network Providers. Outside of the Princeton Area, the SHBP has contracted with the managed care
network identified in the Schedule of Medical Benefits to provide In-Network services.
In-Network Providers accept the Preferred Allowance as full payment for Covered Expenses/Services.
You identify your eligibility for Preferred Allowance charges by showing your Identification Card to the
Provider when you register.
You should be aware that In-Network Hospitals may be staffed with Physicians and other professional staff who are not in In-Network Providers. Unless specified otherwise, the charges of the providers who are out-of-network will not be paid at the In-Network Provider level of benefits. To locate In-Network Providers refer to the contacts information on the Table of Contents for this Plan Document or the Student Health Program web site at www.ptsem/current/healthresources/.
In-Network Benefits Outside of the Princeton Area

The SHBP provides coverage when you receive medical care outside of the Princeton Area from an In-
Network Provider.
Generally, the percentage of charges that the SHBP pays is the same as for Princeton
Area
In-Network benefits. The SHBP does not provide all of the benefits specified in the Schedule for
SHBP Medical Benefits for In-Network Providers in the Princeton Area when you receive these same
services away from the Princeton Area, regardless of your use of an In-Network Provider.

Out-of-Network Benefits

You may choose to use a Physician or other Health Care Provider that is not an In-Network Provider.
This decision may increase your out-of-pocket costs because of lower coverage levels or charges that ex-
ceed the Usual and Customary Charge allowance. The lack of available In-Network Provider in a specific
geographic may not be used as the basis for an appeal of a claim under the SHBP.
Aggregate Plan Year Deductible (Out-of-Network Care Only)

Except as specifically provided for coverage that is subject to In-Network services, the Aggregate Plan
Year Deductible
is the amount of Out-of-Network Covered Expenses/Services you must pay during each
Plan Year before the SHBP will consider expenses for reimbursement. The individual deductible applies
separately to each SHBP-Covered Person. The family deductible applies collectively to all SHBP-
Covered Person
s in the same family. When the family deductible is satisfied, no further deductible will be
applied for any covered Family Member during the remainder of that Plan Year.
The Plan Year individual and family deductible amounts are shown on the Schedule of Medical Benefits.
Expenses from separate Sicknesses or Injuries may be used to satisfy the Aggregate Plan Year Deducti-
ble.

Copayments

Dollar Copayments specified on the Schedule of Medical Benefits represent amounts paid by the Covered
Person
before the SHBP pays benefits at the percentage stated in the Schedule of Medical Benefits or in
the Schedule of Prescription Drug Benefits.
Coinsurance
After satisfaction of any applicable Aggregate Plan Year Deductible or Copayment, the SHBP will pay
the percentage of charges indicated in the Schedule of Medical Benefits or in the Schedule of Prescription
Drug Benefits, subject to the specified maximums.
The SHBP encourages you to use In-Network providers whenever possible. In the Princeton Area you
will receive a higher benefit level for services from In-Network providers. The Coinsurance for In- and
Out-of-Network providers is specified in the Schedule of Medical Benefits at the front of this document.
Student Health Benefits Plan (SHBP)
In-Network providers will not balance-bill you if their charges exceed the In-Network fee schedule. You
may be balance-billed when charges made by an Out-of-Network Provider exceed the Usual and Custom-
ary
(U&C) amount for such services.
Out-Of-Pocket Maximums

The out-of-pocket maximum is the maximum amount of charges for Covered Expenses/Services an
SHBP-Covered Person must pay during a Plan Year. The individual out-of-pocket maximum applies
separately to each SHBP-Covered Person. When an SHBP-Covered Person reaches the Plan Year out-of-
pocket maximum, the SHBP will pay 100% of additional Covered Expenses/Services incurred by that in-
dividual during the remainder of the Plan Year. The family out-of-pocket maximum applies collectively
to all SHBP-Covered Persons in the same family. When the Plan Year family out-of-pocket maximum is
reached, the SHBP will pay 100% of Covered Expenses/Services for any covered Family Member in-
curred during the remainder of the Plan Year.
The Plan Year individual and family out-of-pocket maximum amounts are shown on the Schedule of
Medical Benefits. Any amount applied toward the In-Network out-of-pocket maximum will be applied
toward the Out-of-Network out-of-pocket maximum and vice versa.
The out-of-pocket maximum does not apply to the following:
• Any expenses not covered or excluded by the SHBP, including expenses which exceed Usual and
• Charges in excess of Benefit Maximums. Benefit Maximums

Total plan payments for each SHBP-Covered Person are limited to certain maximum benefit amounts. A
benefit maximum can apply to specific benefit categories or to all benefits. A benefit maximum amount
also applies to a specific time period, such as Plan Year or Lifetime.
The benefit maximums applicable to the SHBP are shown on the Benefit Schedules. Unless otherwise
specified, maximums apply to combined In- and Out-of-Network benefits. The Lifetime maximum applies
to combined Medical Benefits and Prescription Drug Benefits.
Medical Case Management
Medical case management is designed to help manage the care of patients who have special or extended
care Sicknesses or injuries. The primary objective of medical case management is to identify and coordi-
nate cost-effective medical care alternatives meeting accepted standards of medical practice. Medical case
management also monitors the care of the patient, offers emotional support to the family, and coordinates
communications among Health Care Providers, patients, and others.
Benefits may be modified by the SHBP Claims Administrator to permit a method of treatment not ex-
pressly provided for, but not prohibited by law, rules or public policy, if the SHBP Claims Administrator
determines that such modification is Medically Necessary and is more cost-effective than continuing a
benefit to which you or your eligible dependents may otherwise be entitled. The SHBP Claims Adminis-
trator
also reserves the right to limit payment for services to those amounts which would have been
charged had the service been provided in the most cost-effective setting in which the service could safely have been provided. Examples of Sicknesses or Injuries that may be appropriate for medical case management include, but are not limited to: • Chronic or Terminal Sicknesses such as AIDS, cancer, multiple sclerosis, renal failure, chronic ob- structive pulmonary disease and cardiac conditions. • Post-accident long-term rehabilitative therapy. • Newborns with high risk complications or multiple birth defects. • Diagnosis involving long-term IV therapy. • Sicknesses not responding to medical care. • Child and adolescent Mental/Nervous Disorders.
Covered Expenses/Services

When all of the provisions of the SHBP are satisfied, the SHBP will provide benefits as outlined on the
Schedule of Medical Benefits for the services and supplies listed in this Section.
Treatment or services rendered outside the United States of America or its territories are covered on the
same basis as treatment or services rendered within the United States. For international students and their
SHBP-Covered dependents, such SHBP benefits are only provided to the extent they are not covered by
any other insurance plan, insurance program, or system of socialized medicine.

General Requirements

Prescription Drug benefits are payable in connection with covered prescriptions and refills dispensed by
licensed pharmacists. Although a Physician's prescription is required, such prescription does not guaran-
tee that a particular drug will be covered by the SHBP.
The SHBP has selected MEDCO as the prescription benefit program manager. When you fill a covered
prescription at a MEDCO participating pharmacy and show your SHBP Identification Card with the
MEDCO logo, the pharmacy will submit the claim on your behalf and accept the Maximum Allowable
Cost
as full payment. You pay only your Copayment specified in the Prescription Drug Schedule of Bene-
fits.
When you fill a covered prescription at a pharmacy outside the MEDCO Network, you must pay for the
full cost of the purchase and then submit a claim for benefits to MEDCO to be reimbursed. A pharmacy
that does not participate with MEDCO may charge you either more than the Maximum Allowable Cost or
an amount in excess of the SHBP’s Usual and Customary Charge allowance. Charges in excess of the
Maximum Allowable Cost or the SHBP’s Usual and Customary Charge allowance are not covered by the
SHBP.

COORDINATION OF BENEFITS
When you and/or your dependents are covered under more than one medical plan, one plan is considered primary and the other secondary. The primary plan always pays first and usually pays full regular benefits while the secondary plan may pay a portion of the claim not paid by the other plan. This is known as co-ordination of benefits. Except as specifically provided, the SHBP will be primary in coordinating benefits with other insurance programs. As primary coverage, the SBHP will reimburse eligible medical expenses before other insur-ance makes payments for a claim. This Coordination of Benefits provision is subject to some limitations: (1) the SHBP will pay no more than it would have paid if it had been primary, and (2) the amount that the SHBP pays, combined with the amount paid by the other plan, will not exceed the total amount of eligible medical expenses incurred. For purposes of coordination, eligible medical expenses mean any Medically Necessary charges consid-ered in part or full by the SHBP. The Student Health Benefits Plan will coordinate coverage for dependents: • When the SHBP covers a dependent child of non-divorced or non-separated parents and the parent with coverage under the SHBP has the earlier birth date (month and day) in the year. If both parents have the same birth date, the SHBP covering the child for the longest period of time will be primary. • When the SHBP covers the dependent child of the natural parent designated by court order to be re- sponsible for the child’s health care expenses • In the absence of a court order specifying otherwise, the SHBP covers the dependent child of the natural parent having legal custody of the child. • In the absence of a court order specifying otherwise, the SHBP covers the stepchild residing with a stepparent who is the spouse of the natural parent having legal custody of the child. Government Programs The regulations governing Medicare, Medicaid and CHAMPUS/Tricare take precedence over the deter-mination of the SHBP. For example, in determining the benefits payable under the SHBP, the SHBP will not take into account the fact that you or any eligible dependent(s) are eligible for or receive benefits un-der a Medicaid plan. Other Group Plans Any group health plan that does not contain a coordination of benefits provision will be considered pri-mary. Right To Make Payments To Other Organizations Whenever payments, which should have been made by the SHBP, have been made by any other plans(s), the SHBP has the right to pay the other plan(s) any amount necessary to satisfy the terms of this coordina-tion of benefits provision. Amounts paid will be considered benefits paid under the SHBP and, to the ex-tent of such payments, the SHBP will be fully released from any liability regarding the SHBP-Covered Person for whom payment was made. SUBROGATION, REIMBURSEMENT AND RECOVERY

The SHBP’s Subrogation Rights
The SHBP’s subrogation provisions apply when another party (including an insurance carrier) is or may
be liable for a covered individual’s Sickness or Injury and the SHBP has already paid benefits for treat-
ment of that Sickness or Injury. Subrogation refers to the right of the SHBP to be substituted in place of
any covered individual with respect to that covered individual’s legal right of action against the person
who may have wrongfully caused the Sickness or Injury that resulted in the payment of benefits by the
SHBP.
The SHBP may, at its discretion, start any legal action or administrative proceeding it deems necessary to
protect its right to recover any amount it has paid as plan benefits and it may try or settle any such action
or proceeding in the name of and with the full cooperation of the covered individuals. However in doing
so, the SHBP will not represent or provide legal representation for any covered individual with respect to
that covered individual’s damages to the extent those damages exceed the amount of plan benefits.
In addition, the SHBP may, at its discretion, intervene in any claim, legal action, or administrative proceeding
started by any covered individual against any person or that person’s insurer on account of any alleged negli-
gent, intentional, or otherwise wrongful action that may have caused or contributed to the covered individ-
ual’s injury or illness that resulted in the payment of benefits by the SHBP.
The SHBP’s legal costs in subrogation matters will be borne by the SHBP. The legal costs of covered
individuals will be borne by such covered individuals.

The SHBP’s Reimbursement Rights

The SHBP’s reimbursement provisions apply when you or the individuals you cover under the SHBP
(i.e., covered individuals) receive any payment by settlement, verdict or otherwise, including from an in-
surance policy, for an Sickness or Injury caused by a third party. These payments are referred to here as a
recovery.
If you or another covered individual have received a recovery, the SHBP will subtract the amount of the
recovery from the benefits it would otherwise pay for treatment of that Sickness or Injury. If the SHBP
has already paid benefits for treatment of the Sickness or Injury, you or the covered individual must
promptly reimburse the SHBP from any recovery received for the amount of benefits paid by the SHBP.
Reimbursement must be made regardless of whether the covered individual is fully compensated (i.e.,
made whole) by the recovery and regardless of how the payment is characterized. Unless agreed to in
writing by the SHBP Claims Administrator, the reimbursement may not be reduced for any legal or other
expenses incurred in connection with the recovery against the third party or that third party’s insurer. By
accepting benefits from the SHBP, all covered individuals are deemed to agree to this repayment provi-
sion.
Covered individuals may be required to execute an agreement under which they jointly and severally:
• Grant the SHBP a first priority lien against the proceeds of any recovery received.
• Assign to the SHBP any benefit they may have under any insurance policy or other coverage. • Agree to hold the proceeds of any recovery received in trust for the SHBP. • Cooperate with the SHBP and its agents in order to protect the SHBP’s reimbursement rights. Payments of benefits under the SHBP may be conditioned on execution of this agreement. The SHBP is only responsible for those legal costs to which it agrees in writing and will not otherwise
bear the legal costs of covered individuals.
If any covered individual fails to reimburse the SHBP as required by this Section, the SHBP may apply any future
plan benefits that may become payable on behalf of all covered individuals to the amount not reimbursed or it
may enforce its rights through other legal or equitable means.

The SHBP’s Right of Recovery

Whenever payments have been made in excess of the amount necessary to satisfy the provisions of the
SHBP, the SHBP has the right to recover these excess payments from any individual (including yourself),
insurance company or other organization to whom the excess payments were made or to withhold pay-
ment, if necessary, on future benefits until the overpayment is recovered.
If excess payments were made for services rendered to your dependent(s), the SHBP has the right to withhold payment on your benefits until the overpayment is recovered. Further, whenever payments have been made based on fraudulent information provided by you, the SHBP will exercise its right to withhold payment on future benefits until the over payment is recovered. OTHER IMPORTANT PLAN PROVISIONS

Assignment of Benefits

All benefits payable by the SHBP may be assigned to the provider of services or supplies at your option.
Payments made in accordance with an assignment are made in good faith and release the SHBP’s obliga-
tion to the extent of the payment. Payments will also be made in accordance with any assignment of rights
required by a state Medicaid plan.
Alternate Payees

Generally, benefits are payable to you and can only be paid directly to another party upon signed authori-
zation from you. If conditions exist under which a valid release or assignment cannot be obtained, the
SHBP may make payment to any individual or organization that has assumed the care or principal support
for you and is equitably entitled to payment. The SHBP must make payments to your separated/divorced
spouse, state child support agencies or Medicaid agencies if required by a qualified medical child support
order (QMCSO) or state Medicaid law.
The SHBP may also honor benefit assignments made prior to your death in relation to remaining benefits
payable by the SHBP.
Any payment made by the SHBP in accordance with this provision will fully release the SHBP of its li-
ability to you.
Necessary Information

When you request benefits, you must furnish all the information required to implement plan provisions.
Your signature on the claim form permits Princeton Theological Seminary to release or obtain informa-
tion without your further authorization. The SHBP may, without further authorization or notice to any
person, release to or obtain from any organization or person, information needed to implement plan provi-
sions. The SHBP's privacy practices are described in the Health Service Notice on Privacy Practices.
