What are value plans?
Value plans are health plans that offer lower deductibles and useful coverage for more health care services before your deductible is met. Value plans are designed to lower your out-of-pocket costs for the health care services the majority of people use most frequently.
How can I tell which plans are value plans?
All value plans include “Value” in the plan names you will see when shopping on Maryland Health Connection.
What’s covered and how much does it cost?
All value plans include doctor and specialist visits, generic drugs, urgent care and more before you meet the deductible. Also, enrollees with diabetes pay $0 for many diabetes-related services, medications, and supplies. Insulin, test strips, and glucometers are free in value plans.
When choosing a health insurance plan, it’s important to look at what costs you will be responsible for and what costs the insurance company will cover. All value plans are required to cover core benefits with a copay before you meet your deductible, and preventive services are free.
