Shopping for Health Care Coverage

A Health Plan for Your Life

In addition to quality benefits and award-winning customer service, CDPHP members receive free preventive care, nutrition services, gym access, and personalized resources to help you meet your health goals. That’s the CDPHP Difference.

Estimating Health Care Costs

Health care costs can vary depending on a number of factors.

High deductible plans: If you select a high deductible plan, your monthly payment (also known as a premium) will be lower, but you will need to pay out-of-pocket for services until you meet your deductible. Once you meet the deductible, CDPHP will begin paying for the services and you will only pay a copay/coinsurance.

Copayment plans: If your plan does not have a deductible, your premium might be higher, but you will only pay a copay for covered services.

Use the FAIR Health calculator to see what health care providers in your area charge for common procedures. All CDPHP members have access to CDPHP Price Check™, allowing youto call and speak with a live, local representative to determine the costs of common health care services BEFORE they’re scheduled.

In-Network versus Out-of-Network

When shopping for health care coverage, note the difference between in-network and out-of-network cost-sharing levels. By seeing an in-network doctor, you pay significantly less than if you see an out-of-network doctor.

Like other health plans, CDPHP has an “allowed amount” or maximum that we will pay for covered health care services delivered by a non-network provider. If a non-participating provider charges more than the allowed amount, you may have to pay the difference between the allowed amount and the provider’s charge, in addition to any cost-sharing requirements.
