Health Insurance

Quality Care Health Plan (QCHP)

QCHP is a medical plan, which offers a comprehensive range of benefits. The basic concept underlying this traditional approach to group health insurance is freedom of choice. You have the option to choose any physician or hospital for general or specialty medical services, and receive enhanced benefits by using QCHP hospitals, network pharmacies for prescription drugs and behavioral health network providers. As a member of the QCHP, you are responsible for plan year deductibles, special deductibles, and coinsurance amounts. QCHP is comprised of three independent components:

  • Medical
  • Prescription drugs
  • Behavioral health services

Points to consider in making this choice:

  • The freedom to choose any doctor or treatment site also means you may change your choice of doctor or treatment site at any time.
  • Coverage is provided for some preventive and well-care services.
  • An annual deductible and coinsurance apply to most medical services.
  • An annual prescription deductible applies to each member.
  • The following do not apply toward out-of-pocket maximums: prescriptions drug benefits, deductibles or co-payments; pre-certification penalties; ineligible charges (amounts over usual and customary, charges for noncovered services and charges for services deemed not medically necessary).
  • A mandatory pre-certification provision applies to hospital admissions, inpatient or outpatient surgical procedures, extended-care facility admissions and organ & tissue transplants.
  • You may receive additional benefits and/or reductions in cost by using QCHP network providers for inpatient stays, hospital outpatient services, prescription drugs, and behavioral health services.
  • You, or your provider, are required to submit claim forms for payment of benefits. The claims administrator is CIGNA.
