How does the network, your plan and your doctor work together?

Figuring out how your health plan, medical network and doctor work together can be confusing. What’s the difference between what your health plan does and what your network does? How do they both work with your doctor? 

Health insurance plan 

Your plan pays the cost of your medical care. It may also cover:

  • Behavioral health care
  • Prescription drugs

You choose a medical network and doctor through your plan. 

Medical network

The medical network offers the health care providers and hospitals you may use. Services may include:

  • Hospital stays
  • Urgent care
  • Specialist care
  • Help for long-term care needs
  • Lab services
  • X-ray services 

Your doctor and health care team

You select your primary care doctor through your medical network. Your doctor works with your medical network and health plan to keep you feeling your best.
