Get to know what your health plan covers

It is important to understand what care your plan covers and what you may need to pay as your share of the cost. There are two ways you can learn what your health plan covers and what costs you can expect to pay when you get care.

  • Look through your benefit book - Your benefit book explains all of your health plan details and will show:
    • What healthcare your plan covers and doesn't cover
    • How to get services and whether you need preauthorization for a service
    • The types of costs or parts of a healthcare cost you will have to pay for each service you receive
    • Commonly used health plan terms 
  • Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC) - The SBC is a document that comes with your member ID card. It outlines what your plan covers and how your health plan works, including the cost share amounts and percentages that apply to your plan. For example, your benefit book will tell you whether you have a copay for a service. Your SBC will tell you how much the copay is. Sign into your MyBlue member account to see your SBC. Call (602) 864-4851 to have a copy mailed to you.
