When shopping for health insurance, it’s important to know what type of coverage you may need. Many insurance companies offer a variety of insurance products, so knowing what you are shopping for can help filter your options and eliminate confusion.
Understanding what a provider network is and how it works when shopping for health insurance coverage is one of the first steps to narrow down your plan options.
When you have health insurance, it is important to always carry your member ID card with you. You will need this card whenever you seek medical services, such as visiting your doctor or going to the emergency room.
Your member ID card typically contains important information, such as plan type, plan name and network name, and you need this information when seeking medical services, such as visiting your doctor or going to the emergency room. Your member ID card will usually also include phone numbers to your health insurer’s customer service department, as well as other important phone numbers and information on how to access care.
Health insurance is complex and unique, just like you. Fortunately, we’ve taken some of the guesswork out of understanding how health insurance plans work and things you need to consider when shopping for a plan.
