Multi-State Plan

Fri, 02/14/2020 - 16:35

A type of plan offered in the Health Insurance Marketplace.

♦ Despite the name, “multi-state plans” don’t necessarily have network providers or cover services in multiple states.

If you want a plan that does, carefully read any Marketplace plan’s documents and provider directory.

The Affordable Care Act created the Multi-State Plan program to increase choice and competition in insurance markets nationwide.

• The plans are sold through the Marketplace under a contract between the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and insurance companies.

The name “Multi-State Plan” means only that OPM operates the program in multiple states.

♦ Some Multi-State Plans offer in-network coverage nationally or in multiple states. Many don’t.
