Wellmark Silver Traditional HMOSM

If you want predictable expenses and are unsure how often you'll visit the doctor, this plan may be right for you.

Traditional plans make it easy for you to predict what you'll pay for common health care expenses, like in-network office visits, because of the flat copay they offer.

With a silver tier, overall Wellmark pays about 70 percent and you'll pay about 30 percent of the plan's cost-sharing requirements, which can include the deductible, coinsurance and copays. If you're eligible for cost sharing reduction (CSR), you may pay less for services. Consider a silver plan if you qualify for a CSR, which can help lower your out-of-pocket expenses throughout the year.

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.
