If you are enrolled in an ODS medical plan, it's important to know that certain procedures require additional copayments. Those procedures include, outpatient upper endoscopy, spine surgery for pain, knee and hip arthroscopy and knee and hip replacement. This "additional cost tier" was added to encourage members to talk with their doctor and consider other choices in order to make the best treatment decision for their personal situation.
If one of these procedures is recommended to you, ODS provides resources
to learn more about the procedure.
