Apex is a Self Funded Group
Apex has a self-funded group health plan where Apex assumes the financial risk associated with providing health care benefits to you. Rather than paying fixed premiums to an insurance company, Apex pays for medical claims out of pocket as they are incurred.
|Managing Joe’s Type 2 Diabetes
|Joe is going to the physician, receiving diagnostic blood tests, needing prescription drugs, and using a Glucose monitor.
|The total cost of all these services is $7,250
|Copayments (office visits, Rx|
drugs and blood test)
|Limits and Exclusions|| $60||n/a
|What Joe would pay||$1,460||What Apex would pay||$5,790
Joe would still have $7,640 to pay before he reaches his maximum out of pocket
responsibility for the year.
Do Your Part!
Because Apex assumes the financial risk of providing you with health care benefits, we can either save or lose money depending on the level of claims incurred. We want to be able to provide you with high-quality health benefits, but as the cost of providing health care rises, you too must do your part to keep benefits high and costs low.
Some ways that you can help save money for yourself and our company are:
- Eliminate unnecessary visits to your doctor.
- Discuss healthy living and preventive care with your doctor.
- Follow prescription drug directions precisely, and be sure to take all of your medication, even if you feel better.
- Go to in-network doctors, hospitals, and providers as much as possible.
To help keep your health care costs down, do your best to be a wise health care consumer and always ask questions if you do not understand the benefits available to you.
