Q. What is meant by in-network versus out-of-network for the health insurance?
A. Our health insurance is set up with a network of providers or doctors that our employees can go to and thus they are considered to be in-network. You can go to a doctor outside of the network of doctors but please note that the insurance will pay a lower percentage. Please refer to the our Summary Plan Document at the previous link to note the percentage covered for in-network verses out-of-network doctors.
Q. Where do I find a list of the network of providers so I can check to see if my doctor is in or out-of-network?
A. YABC contracts with the Blue Cross/Blue Shield network of providers. You can access the provider listing at: www.azblue.com/CHSNetwork.aspx
Q. Is there a deductible for the health insurance plan?
A. Yes, each covered person for an in-network provider is $500 and for out-of-network is $1500.
