It’s a new year! For many, that means new health insurance. To get the most out of your health benefits in 2019, it’s important you take time to fully understand your coverage.

Here are a few tips to help you get better acquainted with your health insurance plan:

Check Your Network.

Before you make an appointment for medical care this year, you’ll want to double check your network to make sure your preferred doctors and clinics are covered. Even if you didn’t enroll in a new plan this year, you’ll want to check that your network didn’t change before receiving care. Login to your Gravie Account to check if your provider(s) is covered!

Know What’s Covered.

All plans cover preventative care. Not all plans are created equal, but most plans will cover a variety of preventative services, including:

  • Annual physicals.

  • Routine screenings, preventive labs, and imaging.

  • Routine maternity care, such as office visits.

  • Flu shots, and other seasonal vaccinations.

Explore Plan Perks.

Depending on your insurance carrier, your plan might include extra perks for you to take advantage of. These perks include:

  • Gym membership reimbursement.

  • Travel coverage.

  • Free telemedicine or nurse lines.

  • Nutrition advice.

  • Tobacco cessation programs.

  • Case management services for when you need a little extra help managing an illness or serious injury.

  • Lower co-pay amounts for convenience providers, such as MinuteClinic.
