About Beazley Supplemental Medical (gap medical)

Benefits and range of options may vary by state. Premium will vary based on plan chosen. A waiting period for late entrants may apply. This policy is renewable at the option of the company.

The Supplemental Medical Expense (out-of-pocket) plan is not a major medical plan. The product is designed to reimburse certain covered expenses, and is only available if an employer has a major medical plan in place. Out-pocket expenses submitted for reimbursement must be eligible under the major medical plan, and must meet the coverage definitions under our policy (may not include full reimbursement, if annual plan limits have been met). Riders for outpatient services performed in a physician's office/urgent care, or for outpatient chemotherapy/radiation performed in a licensed facility, may not be available in all states.
