What is the difference between a benefit exclusion rider and a pre-existing condition waiting period?

A benefit exclusion rider means a member cannot receive benefits for a specific illness or condition for the lifetime of the benefit exclusion. A pre-existing waiting period means a member cannot receive benefits during the first six or 12 months of coverage for any condition where symptoms existed prior to the effective date of coverage.

How do I order an identification card?

Contact your local Farm Bureau office and the Farm Bureau Health Plans Representative will be glad to order a new ID card for you. If you're a Farm Bureau Health Plans Medicare Supplement member, you can easily order a card through our OneConnection portal. You should receive your new card in the mail within 10 business days after it is ordered. You may also contact us toll-free at 877-874-8323 or use our contact us form.

How do I meet my deductible per calendar year?

You meet your deductible with eligible hospital services, prescription drugs and other services, such as lab work or X-rays. On the co-pay plans, your co-pay is a first-dollar benefit, and the co-pay amount does not apply to your deductible or out-of-pocket maximums. Non-covered expenses also do not apply to the deductible.

Why do I have a pre-existing waiting period?

A pre-existing waiting period protects existing members' premiums. A pre-existing waiting period means a member cannot receive benefits during the first six or 12 months of coverage for any symptom or condition that existed prior to the effective date of coverage. Because the cost of individual coverage is based on use of benefits by the entire membership, pre-existing waiting periods help Farm Bureau Health Plans continue to provide coverage at a significantly lower cost than if pre-existing waiting periods were not in place. If pre-existing waiting periods were not in place, people could wait until they became ill to get health care protection, driving health care costs to an unaffordable level for everyone.
