Benefits at a Glance
Who is this for?
If you want to know what kinds of care a plan covers and what your share of the cost will be, you can look in the document we call Benefits at a Glance.
When you need care or a prescription, the first thing you probably want to know is how much it will cost you. In many cases, the first place you can check is your plan's Benefits at a Glance. This document includes information like:
- The plan name, type and network description.
- A summary of the kinds of services and prescriptions the plan covers.
- What your share of the costs will be: the deductible, coinsurance and copay.
- Whether a service needs plan approval before you get it.
It's important to remember that not every service is listed. If you don't see one and want to know if the plan covers it, there's a phone number on the document you can call. To get started, select a group of plans below. Then you'll be able to choose a Benefits at a Glance from the list.
Coverage for these plans begins on or after Jan. 1, 2016.
What's the difference between Benefits at a Glance and a Summary of Benefits and Coverage?
The two documents share some, but not all of the same information. If you're shopping, it's a good idea to look at both. But in general:
- If you want more information about how a plan works and government rules and requirements, see the Summary of Benefits and Coverage.
- If you want more details about what a plan covers and the health insurance company that offers it, look at the plan's Benefits at a Glance.
