Here too, members pay the lowest out-of-pocket costs when they use network hospitals.

Alaska Interim 20 is a temporary health-care plan that offers limited medical services, with certain restrictions, to provide medical coverage for one month, or up to six months in a single contract period. As far as long term care is concerned, Premera Long Term Care (LTC) gives members the means to obtain the services they really need, in the manner they find suitable.
