Insuranceopedia Explains Supplemental Major Medical Insurance

Typically, the insured individual’s basic health insurance reimburses them for covered expenses, usually without a deductible. Once expenses exceed this coverage, the supplementary policy covers a certain percentage of the amount above the corridor deductible, or the deductible between the two plans. However, there is often a limit after which it reimburses medical expenses in full.
