A passport allows you entry into another country. Your driver’s license allows you entry onto public roadways. Likewise, your insurance card allows you access to health care providers.
Your card serves two purposes:
1. Provides proof you have insurance
2. Tells you how much you’ll pay for care
Insurance cards look different for different plans, but they all have the same type of information. Getting more familiar with the acronyms and numbers will help you better understand your benefits and make it easier when you visit a care provider.
