The services of a certified psychologist cost $110 per hour, and an extended health plan covers 50 percent of that cost. Under the plan, the clients covered used 625 hours of this service in a typical three-month period. To save money, the extended health plan reduced its coverage to 40 percent of the cost. As a result, the clients covered decrease their use of this service to 482 hours in a typical three-month period.
