Network vs. Non Network Providers
Network Providers accept the plan allowance as payment in full and save you money. Non Network Providers have not agreed to accept the plan allowance. This means that in addition to your required Out-of-Pocket cost, any amount above the plan allowance will be your responsibility. Out-of-Pocket maximums which include deductibles, coinsurance, and copays accumulate separately for Network and Non Network providers.
