What is the Uniform Summary of Benefits?

on Thu, 03/15/2012 - 10:00am

As of September 2012, insurers and employers who offer health coverage will have to provide a six page form that summarizes the insurance plan, such as information about deductibles and co-pays, and costs associated with using an in-network and out-of-network medical service.

With these changes, consumers will be able to estimate their out-of-pocket cost amoung different insurance policy options, simplifying the process of evaluating health plans.
