IN-NETWORK As a member of Providence Medicare Extra + RX there is a network (group of providers) that Providence has contracted with to provide you care. These are called in-network providers.
OUT-OF-POCKET MAXIMUM With Providence Medicare Extra + RX there is an out-of-pocket maximum. This means that $2,500 is the maximum amount you will pay for services.
