According to a news release, the Consumer Care plan by PERFORMAX includes both a health reimbursement account (HRA) as well as a high-deductible PPO. After participants deplete the HRA funds and meet their deductibles, the PPO kicks in to pay their medical expenses. The plan pays more for in-network physicians, specialists, hospitals, and other health care providers, the announcement said.
PERFORMAX clients can offer Consumer Care as a stand-alone plan or side by side with traditional health plans.
Consumer Care also offers educational tools and a variety of informational resources to help employees understand the health-care system and become knowledgeable health-care consumers.
The educational offering, PERFORMAX Consumer Care Advisor, provides plan participants with
- online hospital quality and cost information
- a 24-hour Nurse Line
- an audio health information library
- online claims status and account balance access
- other self-service tools and health-care information.
