If you are ill and need to see a doctor, please call the insurance company in advance to verify the terms of your coverage. The insurance company can tell you in detail what sorts of visits are covered and which doctors and hospitals are in your network. Of course, if the situation is an emergency you should go to your nearest hospital.
If you receive a questionable bill, be sure to call the insurance company if it is not clear. Always keep copies of your receipts from your doctor visits.
