22Mountain Top ViewHeading into our third year of our high deductible health plans, we can unequivocally say that our three fold strategy is working!

Goal #1: To beat down health care trend to stabilize premium costs for the company and for our employees even in the midst of healthcare reformHealthcare trend increases for high deductible health plans averages 6 8%, PPO increases range 8 12% and HMO increases range from 12 15%

Salient Results: We have averaged a 1.7% increase per year over the three years even when healthcare reform was adding costs into our plans0% increase at 1st anniversary5% increase at 2nd anniversary0% increase at 3rd anniversary

33Mountain Top View (continued)Goal #2: Provide an opportunity for our employees to begin saving for future retiree health expenses using Health Savings Accounts (HSAs)Salients contribution to employees HSA accounts is on the high side of industry averages Average is $500/$1,000Salient contributes $750/$1,500

Salient Results:Employees account balances have steadily increasedPEACE OF MIND accumulated savings can be built up to offset any potential out-of-pocket expenses in a given yearSAVINGS FOR THE FUTURE with the increased account balances, employees are putting money away that can be used for future expenses (retiree healthcare or COBRA)

44Mountain Top View (continued)Goal #3: Provide high-quality insurance plans which offer choice along with both short- and long-term protectionsSalient Results:Salients coinsurance after the deductible is met and underlying insurance plan is on the high side of industry averages.Industry average is 80%/60% ; Salients plan is 90%70%Robust insurance protections Adding third medical plan for 2014 to offer additional choice, lower premiums and provide simplicityLowest premiums for employees! Salient is paying an additional 10% towards premiums for the Value PlanOnce deductible is met, eligible expenses are paid at 100% for remainder of yearAs HSA balances have grown, employees have opportunity to afford higher deductible
