Increasing premiums are a threat to your bottom line. Many of the cost savings solutions available today do not lower costs, but rather shift costs from the employer to the employee. The GEO Group Alternative Plan, a unique option offered exclusively by us, lowers plan costs instead of shifting them. It provides members with financial incentives to receive excellent medical care overseas, when appropriate. The Alternative Plan provides the same high-quality benefits as the traditional plan, with the following exceptions:
- Higher deductible for care received in the U.S., and a lower deductible for care received outside the U.S.
- Modified Coinsurance schedule:
- For treatment received outside the U.S.: 100% coverage with no out-of-pocket after deductible is satisfied
- For treatment received within the U.S.:
- If utilizing Medical Concierge Provider, company pays 85% of Eligible Medical Expenses until reaching $5,000, then 100%.
- If in the PPO Network, company pays 80% of Eligible Medical Expenses until reaching $10,000, then 100%.
- If outside the PPO Network, company pays 60% of Eligible Medical Expenses until reaching $10,000, then 100%.
