If you decide to go out of network for your treatment, the insurer will apply further deductions in terms of co-payment and UCR rates resulting in partial reimbursement only for your claim.

For Basic Essential Plans (EBP), you will not be able to claim for reimbursement for treatments received outside of your network.
