In the past few months, we’ve created a few new resources to help brokers and employers choose which health plan to offer or make the most of their current plan. From plan comparisons to health literacy, these resources are designed to make health insurance easier to understand and access.

Health insurance literacy guide
Health insurance terms, acronyms, and lingo can be confusing for members. But, understanding the ins and outs of health insurance is crucial to effectively accessing health care services and making the most of one’s health coverage.
This guide explains the importance of health insurance literacy and includes a glossary of common health insurance terms. Consider sharing this valuable resource with employees to help them navigate the complexity of health insurance and improve their understanding of their health plan.
Urgent vs emergency care infographic
Because it’s not always easy to understand what health situations call for what type of care, we created an easy-to-share infographic that explains the differences between each option. This is especially important during COVID-19, when some people may feel hesitant to seek out urgent or emergency care. But, it’s a good idea to call ahead or check online to understand the safety protocols these facilities may have in place around COVID-19.
