2 To avoid a benefit penalty, preauthorization must be obtained as soon as possible before receiving scheduled, nonemergency services or products. For a detailed listing of services and products for which preauthorization must be obtained, see "Appendix C: Services and Products that Require Preauthorization." Failure to obtain preauthorization when required will result in a 25% benefit penalty (100% benefit penalty for transplants). As with all claims, any services determined not to be medically necessary will not be covered.

3 Coverage for chiropractic includes related office visits and eligible services billed and performed by the chiropractor, osteopath, or other medical professional who provides spinal manipulation services.

4 Benefits for hospital observation status are limited to 24 consecutive hours.

5 The Plan pays 100% of Allowable Charges for preauthorized infusion services when the services are provided at an Alliance Coal Direct provider, an on-site Health Center or an alternate site (including at-home administration) arranged through Care Coordination.

6 To be covered, preventive care services must not exceed certain frequencies. Coverage for preventive care includes related office visits and services (such as lab tests and X-rays) if not billed separately and if the primary purpose of the visit is the preventive care.

7 Coverage for private-duty nursing is limited to a $25,000 lifetime maximum benefit (combined for Alliance Coal Direct and Non-Direct services).

8 Coverage for TMJ is limited to surgical and non-appliance treatment, up to a $3,500 lifetime maximum (combined for Alliance Coal Direct and Non-Direct services). This maximum amount also applies to any complications from TMJ treatment.

Other services may be covered at benefit levels that are different from the levels listed above. For example, see “Eligible Expenses” for information about coverage for certain cosmetic treatments to restore normal physical function.
