Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a Product Template, Product, or Plan.
  2. Navigate to the Benefit level.
  3. Select any Copay variation.
  4. Select the Calculation method. The CalculationMethod fields do not display in the UVCopayDetails and UVCoinsuranceDetails sections. The Family field Visibility condition is set to NEVER in the UVOutOfPocketDetailsFixed section.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules: CalculationMethodDescription is missing in the UVCopayDetails and UVCoinsuranceDetails sections.
The Visibility condition change in UVOutOfPocketDetailsFixed section and Family field, is working as expected.


Apply HFIX-61026 (for the missing fields).

If the Visibility condition change on the Family field in the UVOutOfPocketDetailsFixed section is required, this is an Available rule which can be overriden with a custom change made to the Visibility condition.
