Health Supplemental Plan benefits

What is covered?

Plans: H1, H2, H3
The LRFA Health Supplemental Plans are a low cost option, designed to assist individuals and families in the payment of medical expenses. They are ideally suited as secondary coverage to supplement primary health insurance. There are three types of plans (members can choose one plan per individual and children must be enrolled under a parent's plan. These plans differ by limits set on the amount of covered expenses (percentage groups) and maximum payable in a given calendar year.

The H1 plan requires proof of primary health insurance and is only available as a secondary plan. The H2 and H3 plans may be used as either primary or secondary coverage, but they do not qualify as insurance under government regulations, as LRFA is not an insurance company.

Percentage Groups: 20%, 50%, 80%
The percentage groups reflect the benefit payment amount for LRFA approved medical expenses, calculated on the balance after a member's primary coverage has completed payment of the approved charges. Maximums and limitations apply.

Examples of covered medical services:
Common medical services are covered by the LRFA Health Supplemental Plans, including office visits, lab and diagnostic tests, immunizations, in-patient & out-patient services, ambulance transportation, emergency room services, some dental & vision services. See plan Regulations for coverage limits, annual limits and maxiumum services.
