Clarification on Doctor On Demand for High Deductible Options

Published on September 11th, 2017

Please note that the $10 copay for Doctor on Demand only applies to the CHP PPO options that have a copay for doctor visits. Members who are enrolled in a high deductible health plan like Option HDHP, Choice 1500, Choice 2000 or Choice 3000 will pay $44 for a Doctor on Demand visit effective 9/1/2017.  The $44 will also apply towards the deductible or coinsurance under the high deductible health plan options.  IRS regulations require that all medical expenses (except for preventive care) are applied to the deductible for members enrolled in an HSA-qualified high deductible health plan before the Plan begins to pay for covered expenses.
