Your major health insurance most likely doesn’t cover all your out-of-pocket medical costs. Even after you’re enrolled, you might have...
And if you don’t have major medical coverage, your out-of-pocket costs can be even higher. These expenses can add up or surprise you and your family at the most inconvenient times. That’s where Core Access plans can come in. Underwritten by Independence American Insurance Company (IAIC)3, these are a series of Hospital and Doctor fixed indemnity plans designed to pay you fixed benefit amounts for covered out-of-pocket medical expenses.4
Core Access plans pays benefits right away, as soon as you or the provider you assigned your benefits to submits a receipt for your expense.5
Core Access plans cover the “core” health care expenses you’re likely to have. Wellness and preventive care appointments, doctor office visits, outpatient procedures, hospital stays and more—for each of these services you use, Core Access plans pay a fixed cash payment. You can even choose a plan that pays a benefit for maternity expenses and prescriptions.
Let a Core Access plan help provide a financial boost toward paying those parts of your health care expenses you still have to pay.
Flexibility is a key feature of the Core Access series of Hospital and Doctor fixed indemnity plans. With four different plans featuring various benefit levels and covered services, you get to pick the plan that most closely fits your life and financial situation.
Note: Core Access plans don’t restrict you to any network. However, if you choose to use a provider or facility included in the MultiPlan network, one of the largest independent PPO networks in the United States, you can receive the same negotiated discount rates on medical expenses members of that network receive. That translates into more savings for you.
When you reduce your premium by choosing a deductible with a Core Access fixed indemnity plan, it’s not what you’re used to thinking of as a deductible. You’re not paying anything out-of-pocket. Instead, you’re agreeing to a benefit reduction of a certain amount.
For example, say you choose a Core Access plan with a $1,000 deductible. You have a surgical procedure that your plan benefits would ordinarily pay you $3,000 for. With the $1,000 deductible, that means you would receive $2,000 instead.
The Core Access “deductible” benefit reduction is one more way to customize a plan to fit what you need.
