Benefits drive the cost of a health plan, and all plans try to balance benefits and cost. All plans limit payment for non-essential or experimental treatments, job-related expenses, most cosmetic treatment and a range of other "exclusions".
The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) plan offers a broad range of benefits including preventive care for adults and children and routine office visits at modest co-pays, plus hospice, midwife services, mental health treatment, and private duty nursing, and prescription drugs, to name only a few examples. Unlike many other plans, it includes voluntary pregnancy terminations, and transgender surgery up to a fixed amount.
