Health Insurance - Using Health Benefits
  • When you join a health plan you will receive an identification card and member handbook, with detailed information about your benefits.

  • Each health plan has participating providers who agree to accept certain fees for their services. You must use a participating provider in order to receive the maximum benefits from each plan. The health plan you choose will tell you how to find out who the participating providers are.

  • If you use a non-participating provider, your benefits will be reduced if you are in the PPO, or may not be covered at all if you are in an HMO.
