U.S NETWORKS

  • October 20 2014
  • Seven Seas Health

International health plans provide cover worldwide including home country.  Outside of USA there is no network and one can go to any doctor or hospital.  In USA different carriers use different networks which can decrease or waive your co-insurance.  Your insurer’s Customer Service Dept.  can look up who is in network in your area, or you can call your doctor and ask them which networks they are in.  If you present your card in network, the medical facility should bill the insurer directly. You will then be invoiced for deductible or any co-insurance.
