Discount plans

In a discount plan, you pay a monthly fee to qualify for discounts within a network of doctors and other health providers. Discount plans are not health insurance. So they don't have the same rules. For instance, a provider in the network can refuse to give you a discount on care after you’ve already paid the monthly fee and there would be nothing you could do.
