What is an Indemnity plan?
An Indemnity plan is one of the most flexible health insurance plans on the market. It allows you to freely choose any doctor or hospital you wish with no difference in the levels of coverage. Selection of a primary care physician is not required, nor is it necessary to get a referral to see a specialist. However, Indemnity plans are considerably more expensive than managed care plans because a deductible, usually ranging from $500 to $1500, must be met annually before the insurance company begins to absorb any of the cost. When the deductible is met, claims will be paid at a certain percentage of the usual, customary, and reasonable rate (UCR), which is determined by examining the standard costs of healthcare in your area. Additionally, since the insurance company does not have managed care agreements with providers, the responsibility for filing claims for reimbursement is left to you.
