This session we will discuss the basics of understanding your insurance and how you can arm yourself with information.
Understanding your insurance benefits can be tricky. Some would even compare it to learning a foreign language. You may know a few words, but can you communicate effectively with your insurance company?
Knowing how to read your summary plan description, explanation of benefits (EOB's) and learning the insurance language can save you money and time. We will discuss disputing issues, the appeal process and what you can do to protect yourself from incurring unwanted medical costs.
Please feel free to bring your summary plan descriptions and EOB's to the class. I will be happy to show you how to read them for you if you have questions.
