What’s a Provider Network and the importance of it?
IMG uses the UnitedHealthcare network. If you use an in-network UnitedHealthcare provider, your out-of-pocket expenses will less than using a medical provider not in the UnitedHealthcare network.
If you see a provider out of network, you will be subject to additional costs.
When you receive healthcare services from providers that are in your insurance network, your out-of-pocket costs are typically lower than they would be if you received care from an out of network provider.
Find out more about “in network” and “out of network” coverage. UnitedHealthcare is your in-network provider.
If you need medical treatment during your program Telehealth/Telemedicine and Convenience/Urgent Care Clinics options below are the lowest out of pocket cost to you:
For common illnesses and/or minor injuries, your policy has a Teladoc/Telemedicine benefit. Teladoc/Telemedicine visits are NOT subject to a deductible payment.
Teladoc/Telemedicine – $0 deductible or co-payment
Always utilize Teladoc/Telemedicine first. This provides remote doctor visits. It allows patients to connect with healthcare providers remotely, either through video conferencing or through phone calls, to receive medical care without having to be in the same physical location. Telemedicine can be used for a variety of medical services, including consultations, diagnoses, and treatment plans. It is especially useful in situations where a patient may not be able to physically visit a healthcare facility, such as during the COVID-19, earache, flu, sore throat or when a patient lives in a rural area. There is no cost to you for using Teladoc/Telemedicine. You are not subject to your deductible
First, you will need to create a profile on the Teladoc/Telemedicine web site or the app.
Always use zip code 46208 when creating your profile.
URGENT CARE – $100 co-payment
You can choose to go to an urgent care center. These centers can treat most illnesses and some injuries and typically, you will not wait as long you would at the hospital. At urgent care centers, you can go there to get stitches for a bad cut or injuries that require immediate attention. Some urgent cares will take x-rays for if needed.

Coinsurance is the percentage of your medical costs that you must pay after reaching your deductible. When you incur health care costs from a medical provider/procedure, you must pay out of pocket until you spend a certain amount, known as your deductible. Once you’ve paid your deductible, your insurance company starts splitting the cost of future care, based on a set percentage of the costs. The percentage that you pay is your coinsurance (10%). IMG will pay 90% of your coinsurance and you will pay 10%.
Coinsurance is different from a copay, which is a flat fee you pay anytime you get certain types of health care services.
As an example, let’s say you go to the hospital and get a bill of $4,000 to have a minor surgery. You’ll need to pay your $350.00 per injury/per illness deductible, then, the 10% co insurance for that surgery.
The balance after the deductible is $3,650.00. You will need to pay 10% of that before the insurance company pays. 10% of that is $365.00 that you will owe to the provider.
