Built-in prescription drug coverage
SmartSense Plus includes coverage for generic and select brand name drugs. For an additional cost, you can upgrade the SmartSense Plus prescription benefit to expand the coverage for brand name drugs upgrade.
Genric drugs: Coverage is immediate with no deductible t worry about. You'll always save the most when you choose generic drugs.
Brand-name and specialty drugs: A separate deductible is required before coverage begins. If you choose a brand-name drug when generic is available, SmartSense will pay the allowed amount for the generic drug and you'll have to pay the difference.
Good to know: There is some flexibility in the price of your SmartSense plan depending on how much you're willing to pay out-of-pocket each year for your deductible and/or brand-name and specialty drugs.

Preventive versus Diagnostic Care

Deductible Credit Program Available in Indiana
The Deductible Credit Program is a program for Individual customers that automatically puts money into a Special Incentive Account (Account) when you don’t meet your annual deductible, and grows that account to use for future medical costs or whatever you want. If you are a healthy person who rarely meets your deductible or a person who likes having a high deductible in order to keep your premiums lower than this may be of interest to you.
First in order to qualify for one of these accounts you must be on a plan that has a deductible of at least $2,500 or higher or $3,000 or higher for the Lumenos HSA plan. Once you are eligible your account will be set up automatically. Each year where your medical claims are less than your deductible Anthem will credit your Account with an amount that is equal to 20% of your deductible ($3,000 Deductible x 20% = $600).
Once you accumulate credits in your Account, Anthem will automatically send you a special check from your Account the first year you have claims greater than 80% of your deductible. You can use the check payment to lower your out-of-pocket expenses or on whatever you deem necessary. Once this happens Anthem will reset your account back to zero the following year. Then your credits will start all over again.
This new program can help soften the expenses you may incur over your lifetime thus helping reduce the impact of having a high deductible plan.
