Wellmark Gold Modified HMOSM

If you and your family want lower out-of-pocket expenses with no coinsurance when receiving frequent care, consider a simplified gold plan.

Modified plans provide a simple approach to health insurance and include traditional elements like primary care physician (PCP) copays, but without the coinsurance that comes with a traditional health plan.

With a gold tier, overall Wellmark pays about 80 percent and you'll pay about 20 percent of the plan's cost-sharing requirements, which can include the deductible, coinsurance and copays. Consider a gold plan for lower out-of-pocket costs.

Drug tier 1 has the lowest payment obligation. It includes most generics and select branded drugs that have no generic equivalent.

Drug tier 2 has a higher payment obligation than Tier 1 and is made up of drugs that are preferred based on effectiveness when compared to similar drugs.

Drug tier 3 also increases out-of-pocket costs. It consists of non-preferred drugs that have reasonable, more cost-effective alternatives on Tier 1 or Tier 2.

Biosimilar and generic specialty drugs are safe, effective and less costly than specialty treatment options. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a biosimilar is highly similar to and has no meaningful differences from an existing FDA-approved product.

Specialty drugs are split into two categories — preferred and non-preferred. Preferred drugs are proven to treat complex or rare conditions.
