These plans have annual calendar year maximums of less than $50,000, limited prescription drug benefits, limited preventive care benefits, limited pregnancy benefits and limited emergency room benefits.

They provide the insured with ease of underwriting (no individual underwriting), HIPAA portability, access to provider discounts beyond the plan maximum (this is very important when discounts for in network services can be up to 50 percent) and affordability of premium (fifty-five cents per hour assuming a 20 hour work week, employee only coverage) at the expense of very limited medical insurance protection (between $7,500 and $50,000 calendar year maximum along with the other limits mentioned above).
