Select Local Plan
Select Local Plan

How the plan works

A plan that costs less and connects you with great doctors close to home. Get access to a select network of doctors at the lowest cost per paycheck where it’s offered. This plan is only available in certain locations.

Preventive care

You’ll get 100% coverage for preventive care when you use doctors in your network. Preventive care means things like annual checkups, vaccinations, mammograms and other screenings.

Simple copays

You’ll have simple copays so you can easily predict your costs. And with copays, there’s no need to meet your deductible first.

      $35 for primary care
      $75 for specialists
      $75 for urgent care
      $4 for video doctor visits

Other care

You’ll pay the full cost for additional care until you meet your deductible. After that, the plan pays 75% of all in-network costs and 50% of all out-of-network costs. However, the Centers of Excellence program provides 100% coverage for serious medical procedures like spine surgery and heart surgery.

Easy, affordable prescriptions

All generic prescriptions are just $4.

Annual deductible

Your annual deductible will be $2,750 for yourself and $5,500 if you want to cover yourself and your dependents.

Emergency room copay

In addition to your annual deductible, you will also have a $300 emergency room copay that will apply to out-of-pocket maximum.  Once you’ve met your annual deductible, you will only pay the $300 copay until your out-of-pocket is met. 

Total out-of-pocket costs

The maximum amount you can spend out of pocket will be $6,850 for yourself or $13,700 for yourself and your dependents. Once you reach this maximum amount, all your visits and costs will be covered at 100%.

How the local network works

If you have a medical emergency, you can access care outside the network.
