business, money, finance, people and banking concept - smiling wIf you are currently enrolled in a high deductible health plan and are looking for relief, the Out of Pocket Protection
Plan is an inexpensive way to eliminate or reduce high out of pocket healthcare expenses.  The Out of Pocket Protection Plan helps pay your deductible up to $6350 as well as other copayments, and the benefits are paid directly to you in addition to any other coverage you may have.
