Coventry of Iowa offers two basic health care provider models to choose from for their individual/family health insurance plans:

1. Open Access Plans
Members are free to access care from any health care providers within the network. A primary care physician is not selected. Non-emergency services that are provided outside the network are not covered.

2. Point of Service Plan
Payment and out-of-pocket costs are determined by how care is accessed. For the highest payment levels to apply, care must be provided within the network. For services that are provided outside the network, the member is responsible for higher out-of-pocket costs. For some plans a primary care physician must be selected.
