FAQs

The ASPE is a self -funded, limited health care benefit plan designed to pay covered medical expenses for eligible Exchange Participants. Covered medical expenses are subject to limitations. The ASPE is secondary to any primary insurance that you may carry, and covers you alone during your exchange program. This plan is NOT an insurance policy.

IMPORTANT:
In the US, when you call a doctor’s office for an appointment or present your ID card to a provider, it is important for you to say: “My healthcare coverage utilizes the First Health International PPO Network. Are you a First Health International provider?”

DO NOT SAY:
“I have Seven Corners’ Insurance” or “I use Seven Corners’ Network” or “I have ASPE insurance.” Providers WILL NOT recognize this language and your coverage might not be accepted.

REMEMBER:
