Remember to network

Before you make your next doctor’s appointment, get in touch with your insurer to double-check that the doctor is still in your plan’s network. Staying in-network will help you maximize your financial coverage. Going outside of the network may result in your insurance company paying only part of the bill, leaving you to foot the rest. If you go out of town and you need medical care, make sure you take time to call your insurance provider to find out the best way to get the services that will be covered.
