Health Insurance Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC) for 2016-17

Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), otherwise known as health care reform, group health plans must provide consumers with a concise document detailing, in plain language, simple and consistent information about health plan benefits and coverage. The SBC documents will help you better understand the coverage you have and allow you to easily compare different coverage options. The SBCs will summarize the key features of each plan or coverage, such as the covered benefits, cost-sharing provisions, and coverage limitations and exceptions. Some terms in the SBC appear in bold face and are underlined. These terms are defined in the Uniform Glossary, a companion document to the SBC. These definitions are intended to help improve consumer understanding.
