On the Classic Program, the Individual Sharing Amount ("ISA") does not apply to Preventive Services that are Eligible In and Out-of-Network after a 90-Day Waiting Period, up to $1,000 per Program Year. Out-of-Network sharing reimbursement is based on the lesser of the Out-of-Network provider actual billed amount, or Maximum Reasonable Guidelines for Eligible Services provided.

Out-of-Network Services are Eligible after the ISA is met, subject to the sharing percentages and Program Guidelines, up to $1,000 per Program Year.

What is included in a Wellness Visit?

An annual Wellness Visit, or annual GYN, is prevention-focused and not medically necessary to treat an Illness or Injury. It includes past medical, social, and family history; a complete physical exam and review of body systems; age-/gender-appropriate screening tests, including, but not limited to, preventive mammograms and colonoscopies; review of medications; Immunizations and counseling/anticipatory guidance/risk factor reduction interventions.
