Under Federal Health Care Reform, health plans are required to provide non-Medicare members with a new document. Itís called a Summary of Benefits and Coverage, or SBC. The SBC gives you an easy-to-understand breakdown of your coverage. Health care reform requires health plans to have this ready for members. And every health plan has to follow the same format, so you can easily compare plans side-by-side.
Each SBC follows the same format, so theyíre easy to compare from health plan to health plan. The SBC:
No, your premium amount (what you pay for coverage) is not in the SBC. Keep in mind, the SBC doesnít take the place of other information about your health plan, such as a member handbook or benefit summary. To find your premium amount for the new plan year beginning July 1, 2018, check the GICís website.
