Health insurance issuers and group health plans are required to provide employees with a summary about a health plan’s benefits & coverage (SBC). The new regulation is designed to help potential employee(s) better understand & evaluate their health insurance choices.
The new rules are a joint effort among the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Labor, and the Department of the Treasury.
The use of standardized SBC’s makes it easier to understand information about the differences between health plan benefits & coverages. Another way to explain is it provides “apples to apples” comparisons among the insurance plans that are offered.
Please Note: Only certain health plans are available per School District. If you have questions or concerns, please contact Human Resources at (603) 428-3269.
