Doctors, Specialist, and Hospital Coverage

A 90/10 Coinsurance means that the total cost of any In-Network service is shared between the Fund and the Participant at a percentage of the bill. When a Participants visit providers who are in-network with Independence Administrators, the Fund pays 90% of the total Independence Administrator's allowance leaving the Participant with a coinsurance of only 10%.

Once an individual or family has reached their OOP Max, the Plan will pay 100% for all further In-Network claims for the duration of the Plan Year (May 1 through April 30).

Medical Coverage FAQs

Are Doctor and Specialist visits covered?

What is the difference between a deductible, a co-pay, and coinsurance?

A deductible is the initial amount of money you must pay for health care services before your insurance starts to pay for covered services. For all In Network Claims through Independence Administrators or Mental Health Consultants, your coverage does not have a deductible.

A co-pay is a fixed dollar amount you are required to pay for health care services. For example, if you visit a Participating Chiropractor, the copay is $5.

Coinsurance is the set percentage of the allowed amount you are required to pay for health care services. Currently, the coinsurance amount of an office visit through a Participating Independence Administrator provider is 10%.
