A “network” is a group of doctors and hospitals that participates in a health insurance plan. Usually, your out-of-pocket costs are lower if you seek care from doctors and hospitals that belong to your health insurance plan’s network.

Most health insurance plans have networks of doctors, hospitals, pharmacies and other healthcare providers. Depending on the type of health coverage you choose, your care may only be covered if you go to an in-network provider. If staying with your current doctors is important to you, be sure to check if they’re included before deciding.

Health insurance helps you pay for your care. It’s impossible to predict what your medical bills will be each year. Having coverage gives you the peace of mind that you are protected from very high medical expenses.

Studies show that people with health insurance are much more likely than those without it to use preventive health services and necessary prescription drugs. They are also less likely to incur medical debts.

Out-of-pocket costs are your total expenses for medical care that are not paid by your health insurance plan.
