2020 Health Insurance Information
Find an In-Network Provider: When using an in-network provider, your out-of-pocket expenses, deductibles and coinsurance responsibility will be lower than if you use out-of-network providers. An in-network provider is one contracted with the State Health Plan to provide services to plan members for specific pre-negotiated rates. Out-of-network providers do not have these contracted rates, therefore your expenses will be higher.
