Nevada Tonik: Blue Cross Health Coverage Explained
June 15, 2010
By Mike Rose
The main reason people should purchase a Tonik health plan in Nevada is to protect themselves from bankruptcy should a major health issue occur. We all have health insurance horror stories about some uninsured friend being billed thousands of dollars for medical fees. Since Tonik has a 5 million dollar life time payout, you can rest assured that if you ever did have very expensive hospital bills you would be covered. But you would first have to pay your deductible.
How does the Blue Cross Tonik Nevada deductible work?
Tonik offers three different plans with three different deductibles.
- 1) Tonik 1500
- 2) Tonik 3000
- 3) Tonik 5000
