All-Inclusive Office Visit Copayment
All-inclusive, comprehensive copayment that covers all services at a participating provider’s office, such as labs, X-rays, surgical procedures and more!
All plans that have a copayment provide you with the convenience of an all-inclusive office visit copayment. What does that mean?
If you visit a participating in-network provider, you will pay one copayment for all covered services performed in the doctor’s office for the same date when billed by the physician. Best of all, there are no dollar maximums!
Here are a few examples of what is covered under the all-inclusive office visit copayment:
- Office charges, including surgical services or treatment of an illness, accident or injury
- Allergy and tetanus shots
- Annual physicals
- Injections (immunizations)
- Diagnostic lab and X-ray services (Other charges could apply if the provider sends the claim to a hospital for processing.)
