How can your health insurance card tell you which KIND of insurance you have? And Why does the type matter? Isn’t it all the same?

Actually, it isn’t! So grab your insurance card and join us for our webinar on Wednesday, August 30th at 6:30 PM! Refer to your own personal insurance card as our speaker walks you through what it all means! Identify your health insurance TYPE (ex. Medi-Cal, Covered CA, employer, Medicare) instead of only the health plan name. Find out about expiration dates and how to avoid pitfalls. See lots of visual examples of what to look for on sample cards, too! A simple, informative webinar with excellent tips on making your insurance card understandable!

Can you find your insurance card in less than 5 minutes? Don’t wait until an emergency to find out!  See the video of the webinar below and our slide deck.  One sheet guide to reading your insurance card coming soon!
