LIMITED BENEFIT/GAP PLANS
Limited Medical Plans (sometimes called Mini-Med plans) offer viable low-cost alternatives for people not purchasing comprehensive major medical insurance. Where major medical plans pay based upon the charged claims amount, most Limited Medical Plans pay based upon a fixed benefit indemnity amount when various services are incurred, such as:
- Physician Office Visits
- Outpatient Lab & X-Ray Tests
- Hospital In-Patient Stays
- Critical Illness Incidents
- Prescriptions- Discount Card, or Restricted Rx Benefit
These products are currently most popular with clients that do not have other medical coverage. On a group basis, they provide lesser coverage to full-time, part-time, entry-level employees and any other employee who cannot afford or is not eligible for the employer's traditional major medical plan. They are an inexpensive way to provide some health insurance coverage and security for their employees.
When purchased by individuals, Limited Benefits also serve as a reasonable alternative to medical insurance.
Many groups and individuals use small versions of Limited Medical benefits as a Gap Plan to support higher-deductible catastrophic insurance.

The history has enabled the company to develop support and service systems that are specifically directed toward handling this unique type of business. APL has earned a reputation of prompt and effective administration and service to its group and individual policyholders.
APL provides coverage for thousands of employees of school systems, city governments, county and parish governments, state governments and of course commercial businesses.
APL’s Medlink product is intended to provide reimbursement for costs related to deductibles and co-insurance/co-payments not paid by the primary underlying medical plan.
This reimbursement plan targets groups with five or more participating employees.
