Choosing the right health plan, network and doctor is vital.
For your clients, figuring out how their health plan, medical network and doctor work together can be confusing. We’ve created a graphic to help make it clearer.
Health insurance plan
The health plan pays the cost of medical care. This can include medical benefits, behavioral health and prescription drug coverage. Through the health plan, clients choose a medical network and primary care doctor.
Clients choose their medical network through the health insurance plan. The medical network provides access to primary care doctor, hospitals, specialists and a variety of services.
Primary care doctor
The primary care doctor works with both the medical network and health insurance plan. The doctor leads your client’s health care team and coordinates all of their care.

We provide a wide range of services when and where patients need it. These include primary, specialty, urgent, senior care and more.
We invest in strong partners who aim to keep patients healthy. We give providers the tools they need to help patients make health care decisions.
