Benefits 101

Health insurance can be a confusing product and as a result many people just assume it’s too confusing to learn or understand basic benefits. Not true. Health insurance certainly has various aspects that a member needs to understand but it is not impossible or even that hard to learn. Here are key aspects of a health insurance policy that affect the price of the policy:

COINSURANCE

An enrollee begins to pay for coinsurance after their deductible has been met. A coinsurance fee refers to a percentage of a healthcare cost that they will be charged. For instance, an in-network doctor’s visit may have a 30% coinsurance rate. If the visit costs $100 total, the consumer will be responsible for paying $30, and the insurance company pays the remaining $70. Generally, the lower the member’s coinsurance percentage, the higher the premium the member must pay.

COPAYMENT

A copayment is similar to coinsurance, but instead of being figured as a percentage of a service’s cost, it is calculated as a flat fee for a medical service. For instance, your plan may charge a $33 copay for visiting an in-network specialist. As with coinsurance, in many cases copayments will not begin until the consumer has met their deductible. Generally, the more copays that are not after deductible (a.k.a. “first dollar”), the higher the premium the member will pay.

DEDUCTIBLE

A deductible is the amount an enrollee must pay for covered medical services before an insurance plan will start covering costs. Generally, the lower the deductible, the higher the premium the member must pay.

POLICY MAXIMUM

The maximum dollar amount for medical services that the member’s insurance company will pay during the term of the policy. Traditionally, $1,000,000 has been the standard. However, a lower policy maximum will drive lower premiums.

PREMIUM

The amount of money that the member must pay for their insurance policy. Generally, the more benefits provided will mean a higher premium for the member.

OUT-OF-POCKET MAXIMUM (Or Limit)

Your out-of-pocket limit is the maximum amount you pay for deductibles, coinsurance, and copayments within your coverage period. After this amount is reached, the plan pays 100% of covered medical services delivered in-network for the remainder of the policy term. Costs that do not have to be counted towards your out-of-pocket maximum include: premiums, out-of-network costs, and uncovered medical services. Generally, the lower the out-of-pocket maximum, the higher the premium the member must pay.

POLICY TERM

Policy term is the maximum duration of the initial coverage period offered by the plan. You can purchase a plan for one month up to the maximum duration and you can cancel your policy at any time. We suggest purchasing the maximum duration available. Short-term plans are not guaranteed renewable, but we can help you reapply or find a new plan.

How does a Short Term Health Plan Work?

A person with a short-term health insurance plan gets in a serious accident Costing $110,000 in medical claims. Their health plan has the following cost-shares:

Example of how much the insurance policy pays

All together, the person will pay $10,000 and the insurance Company will pay $100,000 to cover the medical claims from this accident.

Provider Network

One of the popular aspects of short-term medical insurance plans is they do not confine you to a specific network. In other types of major medical plans if a member seeks services outside of the network they either have a higher percentage of cost shares or they have to pay the full claim themselves. Your Everest STM does not confine you to a specific network Everest plan pays up to 150%* of Medicare allowable expenses. This is generous reimbursement that most providers will accept. However, you should make sure that the provider organization where you are seeking services understands this so there are no issues later.

*Actual amount may be greater in some states. The coverage is subject to the language of the policy as issued.

Exclusions

Virtually all health insurance policies have exclusions that are listed in the insurance contract. It is important that a member know those exclusions. Below is a list of some of the more common short-term medical exclusions (for a complete listing read your specific insurance contract):

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the plan require Pre-Certification?

All Inpatient hospitalizations and procedures done at an Outpatient Surgery Facility must be pre-certified. Everest Reinsurance Company's professional review organization must be contacted as soon as possible before the expense is to be incurred. If the Covered Person does not comply with the Pre-certification requirements as stated in the insurance certificate, the Eligible Medical Expenses will be reduced by 50%.

How does Usual and Customary Fees affect my benefits?

The Policy defines Usual and Customary Fees as the usual, fair and reasonable fee for medical treatment provided to a Covered Person (or any other form of medical care, procedure, drug or supply).

In determining a Usual and Customary Fee, the Company at its discretion, consults:

  1. one (1) or more standard industry sources to calculate services of comparable severity and nature in the same geographical area, the cost of the goods and services reasonably required to produce and deliver such treatment and/or the charge most commonly paid for such treatment. The standard industry sources utilize cost-based formula methodology and/or pricing data (updated semi-annually) to produce replicable and consistent cost and/or pricing parameters;
  2. the cost to the health care provider of performing or providing the medical treatment, including reasonable allowance for overhead and profit;
  3. fee schedules used by third parties such as Medicare or Medicaid, including Medicare allowable charge data for Medicare Part B;
  4. hospital cost data as submitted to Medicare, including Medicare allowable charge data for Medicare Part A;
  5. prevailing negotiated fee schedules for same or similar services performed in the same geographical area.

All benefits are limited to Usual and Customary Fees. Usual and Customary Fee definition may vary by state.

What if members change their minds after the purchase of STM coverage?

If not 100% satisfied with coverage and members have not already used any of the insurance benefits, they may return the certification to us within 10 days of receipt. Coverage will be cancelled as of the effective date and the plan cost will be returned. No questions asked!

What is the Pre-Existing Conditions Limitation?

Charges resulting directly or indirectly from a condition for which a Covered Person received medical treatment, diagnosis, care or advice within the 60* month period immediately preceding such person's Certificate Effective Date. A Pre-Existing condition includes conditions that produced any symptoms which would have caused a reasonable prudent person to seek diagnosis, care or treatment within the 60* month period.

Glossary

You should also refer to your specific policy’s definitions to ensure you have the precise meaning for your needs):

Accident:

A sudden, unforeseeable event that causes injury to one or more people covered under the policy.

Allowed Amount:

The maximum amount a plan will pay for a covered health care service. May also be called “eligible expense,” “payment allowance,” or “negotiated rate.” If your provider charges more than the plan’s allowed amount, you may have to pay the difference (also known as Balance Billing).

Association Fee:

Some short-term medical plans are filed as an association group plan in various states and require monthly fees.

Balance Billing:

When a provider bills you for the difference between the provider’s charge and the allowed amount. For example, if the provider’s charge is $100 and the allowed amount is $70, the provider may bill you for the remaining $30. A preferred provider (one in your network) may not balance bill you for covered services.

Benefits:

The health care items or services covered under a health insurance plan. Covered benefits and excluded services are defined in the health insurance plan's contract or certificate.

Claim:

A request for payment that you or your health care provider submits to your health insurer when you get items or services you think are covered.

Coinsurance:

An enrollee begins to pay for coinsurance after their deductible has been met. A coinsurance fee refers to a percentage of a healthcare cost that they will be charged. For instance, an in-network doctor’s visit may have a 30% coinsurance rate. If the visit costs $100 total, the consumer will be responsible for paying $30, and the insurance company pays the remaining $70. Generally, the lower the member’s coinsurance percentage, the higher the premium the member must pay.

Congenital Condition:

A disease or other anomaly existing at or before birth, whether acquired during development or by heredity.

Copayment:

A copayment is similar to coinsurance, but instead of being figured as a percentage of a service’s cost, it is calculated as a flat fee for a medical service. For instance, your plan may charge a $33 copay for visiting an in-network specialist. As with coinsurance, in many cases copayments will not begin until the consumer has met their deductible. Generally, the more copays that are not after deductible (a.k.a. “first dollar”), the higher the premium the member will pay.

Cost Sharing:

The share of costs covered by your insurance that you pay out of your own pocket. This term generally includes deductibles, coinsurance, and copayments, or similar charges, but it doesn't include premiums, balance billing amounts for non-network providers, or the cost of non-covered services.

Coverage Period:

The length of time which the Insured selected in the Insured’s application and approved by the insurance company.

Covered Person:

An Insured and his/her eligible dependents for whom coverage is in effect under a policy.

Creditable Coverage:

Under HIPAA, Continuous Coverage applies when a person is transitioning from an existing health insurance plan to an employer-sponsored group health plan. With Continuous Coverage, conditions treated under the prior plan will continue to be treated under the employer plan without the being subject to a waiting period. Policy holders can contact their insurance carrier to request a Certificate of Creditable Coverage for use when transitioning from Short-Term to an employer-sponsored group health plan. For more information, see the FAQ or visit the Help Center.

Deductible:

A deductible is the amount an enrollee must pay for covered medical services before an insurance plan will start covering costs. Generally, the lower the deductible, the higher the premium the member must pay.

Dental Coverage:

Benefits that help pay for the cost of visits to a dentist for basic or preventive services, like teeth cleaning, X-rays, and fillings. Short-term medical plans generally do not have regular dental coverage but do cover restoration and replacement of natural teeth lost or damaged because of an Injury covered under the policy. Stand-alone dental plans are available on AgileHealthInsurance.com.

Dependent:

Experimental Treatment:

A treatment, drug, device, procedure, supply or service and related services (or any portion thereof, including the form, administration or dosage) for a particular diagnosis or condition that is not clinically approved.

Out-Of-Pocket Maximum (Or Limit):

Your out-of-pocket limit is the maximum amount you pay for deductibles, coinsurance, and copayments within your coverage period. After this amount is reached, the plan pays 100% of covered medical services delivered in-network for the remainder of the policy term. Costs that do not have to be counted towards your out-of-pocket maximum include: premiums, out-of-network costs, and uncovered medical services. Generally, the lower the out-of-pocket maximum, the higher the premium the member must pay.

Outpatient:

A person who incurs medical expenses at Doctor’s offices and freestanding clinics, and at hospitals when not admitted as an inpatient.

Penalty:

A payment (“fee,” “fine,” “individual mandate”) you make if you don’t have health insurance that counts as qualifying health coverage.

You owe a fee for any month you, your spouse, or your tax dependents don’t have qualifying health coverage. You’ll pay the fee when you file your federal income tax return. If you’re uncovered just some months of the year, you pay 1/12 of the penalty for each month you’re uninsured. If you’re uncovered for only 1 or 2 consecutive months, you don’t have to pay the fee at all.

If you qualify for an exemption, you won’t have to pay the fee.

Policy Maximum Benefit:

The maximum dollar amount for medical services that the member’s insurance company will pay during the term of the policy. Traditionally, $1,000,000 has been the standard. However, a lower policy maximum will drive lower premiums.

Policy Term:

Policy term is the maximum duration of the initial coverage period offered by the plan. You can purchase a plan for one month up to the maximum duration and you can cancel your policy at any time. We suggest purchasing the maximum duration available. Short-term plans are not guaranteed renewable, but we can help you reapply or find a new plan.

Pre-Existing Condition:

A health problem you had before the date that new health coverage starts.

Premium:

The amount of money that the member must pay for their insurance policy. Generally, the more benefits provided will mean a higher premium for the member.

Drugs and medications that, by law, require a prescription.

Prevention:

Activities to prevent illness such as routine check-ups, immunizations, patient counseling, and screenings.

Primary Care:

Health services that cover a range of prevention, wellness, and treatment for common illnesses. Primary care providers include doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. They often maintain long-term relationships with you and advise and treat you on a range of health-related issues. They may also coordinate your care with specialists.

Prior Authorization (Preauthorization):

Approval from a health plan that may be required before you get a service or fill a prescription in order for the service or prescription to be covered by your plan.

Qualifying Health Insurance (or Coverage):

Coverage that is compliant with the Affordable Care Act so that policyholders are not liable to the shared responsibility tax.

Qualified Health Plan:

An insurance plan that’s certified by the Health Insurance Marketplace, provides essential health benefits, follows established limits on cost-sharing (like deductibles, copayments, and out-of-pocket maximum amounts), and meets other requirements under the Affordable Care Act. All qualified health plans meet the Affordable Care Act requirement for having health coverage, known as “minimum essential coverage.” Short-term medical is not a qualified health plan.

Rate Review:

A process that allows state insurance departments to review rate increases before insurance companies can apply them to you. Short-term medical plans are term insurance so a member will not receive a rate increase during the term of their policy.

Rescission:

The retroactive cancellation of a health insurance policy. Insurance companies will sometimes retroactively cancel your entire policy if you made a mistake on your initial application when you buy an individual market insurance policy. Under the Affordable Care Act, rescission is illegal except in cases of fraud or intentional misrepresentation of material fact as prohibited by the terms of the plan or coverage.

Rehabilitative/Rehabilitation Services:

Health care services that help you keep, get back, or improve skills and functioning for daily living that have been lost or impaired because you were sick, hurt, or disabled.

Subscriber:

The person who is the primary insured or the policyholder.

Subsidized Coverage:

Health coverage available at reduced or no cost for people with incomes below certain levels. Examples of subsidized coverage include Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

Substance Abuse:

The overindulgence in and dependence on a psychoactive leading to effects that are detrimental to the individual's physical health or mental health, or the welfare of others.

Skilled Nursing Care:

Also known as custodial or convalescence care services from licensed nurses in your own home or in a nursing home. Skilled care services are from technicians and therapists in your own home or in a nursing home.

Specialist:

A physician specialist focuses on a specific area of medicine or a group of patients to diagnose, manage, prevent or treat certain types of symptoms and conditions. A non-physician specialist is a provider who has more training in a specific area of health care.

Surgery or Surgical Procedure:

An invasive diagnostic procedure; or the treatment of injury or sickness by manual or instrumental operations performed by a doctor while the patient is under general or local anesthesia.

UCR (Usual, Customary, and Reasonable):

The amount paid for a medical service in a geographic area based on what providers in the area usually charge for the same or similar medical service. The UCR amount sometimes is used to determine the allowed amount.

Urgent Care Center:

A medical facility separate from a hospital emergency department where ambulatory patients can be treated on a walk-in basis without an appointment and receive immediate, non-routine urgent care for an Injury or Sickness presented on an episodic basis.

Vision Coverage:

A health benefit that at least partially covers vision care, like eye exams and glasses. Generally, short-term medical plans do not include a vision benefit. A “stand-alone” plan is available for purchase when someone buys a short-term medical plan.

Wellness Programs:

A program intended to improve and promote health and fitness. Coverage in a short-term medical plan varies plan to plan. Some have no wellness benefits while other plans have varying benefits.

Explanation of benefits

Explanation of benefits (commonly referred to as an EOB form) is a statement the health insurance company sends to members explaining what medical treatments and/or services were paid for on their behalf.

Example health insurance explaination of benefits document

It is most famous as that “waste” of mail that comes to people after accessing medical services announcing that it is “not a bill.” So why bother? The explanation of benefits is important for a few reasons:

  1. It explains what the cost of the medical service actually was (the allowed amount not billed amount) which is applied to a person’s maximum benefit counter.
  2. It informs the member if they have any responsibility for payment so the member knows if a bill will be coming.
  3. Many EOBs will tell the member how much of their deductible is satisfied.
