Your provider network is an important part of your health plan coverage. When you use the doctors, hospitals and pharmacies that belong to your specific network, you save money. Because these network providers are working to keep your costs down.
Your plan lets you use any doctor or hospital for your care. But you receive the highest level of benefits when you choose doctors and hospitals that are in your network. Remember: Whenever you choose a doctor, hospital or other provider that is not in your network, you pay more on your own. And raise costs for everyone.
Smart financial choices
Remember: To keep your costs low, make sure your doctor or hospital belongs to your particular network.When it comes to your health and the cost of your health care, you have a choice. And your choices make a difference.
