In addition to the benefits specified, the Medical Plan may elect to offer benefits for services furnished by any
provider pursuant to a Medical Plan-approved alternate treatment plan, in which case those charges Incurred for
services provided to a Covered Person under an alternate treatment plan to its end, will be more cost effective than
those charges to be Incurred for services to be provided under the current treatment plan to its end.
The Medical Plan shall provide such alternate benefits at its sole discretion and only when and for so long as it
determines that alternate treatment plan is Medically Necessary and cost effective. If the Medical Plan elects to
provide alternate treatment plan benefits for a Covered Person in one instance, it shall not be obligated to provide
the same or similar benefits for such Covered Person in any other instance or for other Covered Persons under this
Medical Plan in any other instance, nor shall it be construed as a waiver of the Employer's rights to administer this
Medical Plan thereafter in strict accordance with its express terms.
