A closer look at your Connected Care Plan options

Features of the HDHP and Primary Care Plus plans:

  • In-network and out-of-network benefits

    You pay less when you receive care from in-network providers and facilities.

    Out of network preventive care will be subject to deductible and coinsurance. You will pay 40% of the cost after deductible.

    In-network preventive care will continue to be paid at 100% with no deductible. The in-network coinsurance also remains at 5% after deductible.

  • In-network preventive care covered in full
    Most preventive care services are covered at 100 percent when care is received from in-network providers; you don’t need to meet your annual deductible before most preventive care services are covered.
  • Prescription drug coverage at 100%

    For certain medications. They are noted within the formulary with “ACA Preventive.” You also have access to up to a 90-day supply of a prescription drug from a retail pharmacy or from our mail-order service.

  • Annual deductible

    You’ll need to meet an annual deductible for many services, then the plan begins to pay for covered services.

    • The HDHP has a higher deductible because you can offset the high deductible by making pre-tax contributions to a Health Savings Account to pay for eligible health care expenses
    • The Primary Care Plus plan has a lower annual deductible. You do not need to meet the annual deductible before the plan pays for in-network primary care office visits and prescription drugs
  • Extra support for chronic conditions

    Get the care you’re looking for from your Medical Home plus additional support from a dedicated Connected Care team just for Intel members. They are available to members who live with asthma, diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, tobacco use, weight-control issues and many other chronic conditions.

  • Easy access to office visits for primary care

    Both Connected Care plans offer benefits for primary care visits in the clinic or virtually through an eVisit, phone visit or web-based video visit.
