How Vera Works


Radical transparency. That's how we work at Vera. We're here to streamline the path to Short-Term Medical coverage by giving you the freedom and confidence to choose the best plan for your lifestyle. No mysteries. No fluff. No hassle.

 

Telemedicine Services

As a member of the LIFE Association, you get access to convenient 24/7 phone access to licensed doctors who can treat and diagnose common illnesses.

Doctor Visits

Subject to deductible and coinsurance

*In Florida, our plans offer a $50 benefit for your first doctor visit. Subsequent visits apply to deductible and coinsurance.

Urgent Care

Unlimited visits. You pay $50 per visit; your medical deductible is waived and remaining expenses apply to coinsurance.

*Urgent Care is defined as a medical facility providing immediate, non-routine urgent care for an injury or sickness treated on a walk-in basis.

Emergency Room Care

Unlimited visits. Subject to an additional $250 access fee unless admitted to a hospital; costs apply to deductible and coinsurance.

Ambulance Services

Unlimited ground trips. Maximum benefit of $250 per trip.

Some Out-of-Network Coverage

Even if your primary care physician is out of the Aetna network, we still pay benefits for out-of-network services. Therefore, Vera may still be the best health insurance option for you.

Today, there is no penalty for using out-of-network facilities, but you will not receive the same discounts as provided by in-network facilities. 

Find a Doctor

Choose your doctor from more than 690,000 primary care doctors and specialists across 5,700 hospitals in the Aetna Open Choice® PPO Network.
